He’s got the whole world in His hands

He’s got the whole world in His hands…

Even long before I was a Christian, I was singing this song. Raffi knows what’s up.

It depicts not just a loving, caring, involved God, but a powerful, BIG God. Bigger than the little bitty baby, of course, but also bigger than the entire world.

As I’ve grown up and answered the call of Jesus, I’ve learned that He is so much bigger than even that.

If God is outside of time and space, He doesn’t just hold the world. He holds the stars, the planets, the galaxies, the universe–and beyond.

In His hands.

What can I hold in my hands?

Roughly half a bag of chocolate chips, at last measure. #parentlife

That’s how big the universe is to God. My entire country isn’t even the size of one of those chocolate chips.

And yet.

He is intimately involved in the minutae of this one life. He reminds me to fill up the gas tank, to make school lunches, to forgive.

And when I cry, the hands that hold the universe and every atom it contains hold me close. They dry my tears and lift my chin.

And so I hold His mighty, tender hand, trusting He’ll hang on to me as we adventure through this life together.
