God’s Hands

15 Mar

“The buck stops here.” ~President Harry S. Truman

God’s Hands

I hear a lot of people say
“I’ll leave it in God’s hands”
They pass the buck and hope that He
Deals with our life’s demands

Another trouble comes around
And off it goes to God
Another package sent right up
That’s screwed up, broken, flawed

“What is this? Some turmoil?
God’s hands still have some room
He has plenty of space for all
My misery and doom”

The Warrior’s relationship
With He who did create
Is one that is a bit different
Than sending just their hate

The Warrior is well aware
That there’s a higher power
But they will never pass the buck
Wash hands of it and cower

The Warrior is filled with strength
Because they know their source
They’re forged from something paramount
An immovable force

They are derived from One who can’t
Be controlled or destroyed
And being a supreme power
It never does avoid

Troubles, hardships, struggles, tests
Annoyances and stress
This Creator does not hand off
Instead it does address

And so the Warrior’s inspired
To face those same demands
Bravely by themselves and not
Pass it to their God’s hands

They feel assured to know that their
Creator watches on
But they can handle it themselves
With their own grace and brawn

Never will you hear a Warrior
Pass any buck
“Give me that!” they say and snatch
Grasp, grapple, grip or pluck

Whatever is the task at hand
And clasp it firmly tight
The Warrior knows each conquest
Bring them to a new height

“Don’t worry, I’ve got this one”
The Warrior tells God
You’ve done enough for me, and for
That I greatly applaud

But now it’s time for me to stand
To rise up and to deal
It’s easier to kick ass if
I stand rather than kneel”

        I think you summed it up well in your poem!

    What we can change or do is IN our hands.. and thus must take responsibility…
    Another saying.. “From your mouth to god’s ears’

      Hopefully in one ear and out the other if it’s a complaint. 🙂

    ‘It’s In God’s Hands” can be an easy way out. God also wants us to make positive changes in the world and needs us to take action ourselves to do that! I like the idea of this poem and the message is well executed Miro.

    What a wonderful perspective, Miro! We do have the capability to be responsible for ourselves and not “pass the buck!” Loved it! 🙂

    God is right there with us in “our goings in and our comings out!” Huzzas and hoorays for marching out with Our King of Kings!

    It’s a wonderful poem!
    There is a warrior within all of us who struggles, endures and survives each day as it comes.
    Great work on your blog, Miro.
    I am glad that you found my blog because of which I found yours.
    Keep writing, and keep inspiring!

Speak up, fellow Warrior!
