Two Hands

by Mark Weinrich

I blew into my cupped hands
to warm and ignite the truth
that when all is cold with darkness,
Jesus’ promise stands—
“ one can snatch you from My hand.
no one can snatch you from My Father’s hand.”
Then He cupped his hands, saying,
“I and the Father are one.”

I am so glad my life is shielded
in His cupped hands, by His power,
by His purpose through love,
to keep and give eternal life
to all who trust Him.
I imagine Jesus’ smile 
over His opened hand
and the brightness of His voice.
“No can snatch you from My hand.”
Someday in heaven I want to hear
those words and I will leap for joy, 
as my heart leaps now.

(Based on the promises in John 10:27-30)
