Fingerprint Friday - In the Hands of God

Flowers in the garden at my church, a tiny sample of what His hands have done.

My fingerprint this week is one of my current favorite songs on the Christian radio station, "In the Hands of God" by the Newsboys. I love the words.

We have raised our hopes and our cities high
We have followed fragile dreams
But only One could take the measure of our goals
And we've stumbled over the trials of life
And we've wrestled the unseen
But only One can calm the storm inside our souls

In the hands of God we will fall
Rest for the restless, and the weary
Hope for the sinner
In the hands of God we stand tall
Hands that are mighty to deliver
Giving us freedom

When our strength gave way to the weight of guilt
'Til we strained for every breath
Only One could lift our shame and make us well
And when all is finished and we face
The fearsome power of death
Only One has overcome the gates of hell

You're amazing
You're amazing, You are
And we praise You, Lord
For what Your hands have done


There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says:

I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know it's true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of God

Where do you see God's fingerprints? In nature? kids? animals? They are all around us!

Gorgeous colors! I love how the flower picks up the violet color in the grass that I'm not sure you'd notice without it. And wonderful words. :)

Beautiful post! I'm going to check out the flowers at my church tomorrow! I never stop and look because I'm trying to see if there are any cute guys sitting in the pews! Ha!
