Out of my Hands and into Yours
age 60 I am old, but I believe in the wisdom of the aged. Through many painful
years part of the strength I have found to press on has been through the
Port Orange Winning Women Bible study
taught by Anita Smith.Over
21 years ago I had heard about this Bible
study and someone had promised to take me to it. But I got so desperate for help
and fellowship during this time, I found it by myself. I walked in to that
blessed church and had one child holding on to my pants and one in my arms. I
sat in the back as my kids weren’t used to going to a nursery. I was so welcomed
by Anita Smith and Nancy Cox that day that I knew I had found my home, my tribe.
During this time I felt that these women held my arms up as helpers held Mose’s
arms during times that his own strength was failing. By prayer and fellowship my
battles have been won as I listened to the Word of the Lord and acted on
song, “Out of My Hands” by Matthew West we see a true portrayal of letting go
and letting God in these situations.
It's out of my hands
It's out of my reach It's over my head And it's out of my league
There's too many things That I don't understand So it's into your
And it's out of my
Yesterday I once again asked for a special
prayer request and my much older Bible Study ladies begged with tears and
travail that the Lord intervene in my family. My advise to all who read this is
find you someone with skin on, that will pray for you. Our online support groups
are here for you but never to replace the love and fellowship you find in the
Body of Christ.
