Safe In His Arms

My heart is a bit heavy right now. I shared with you in this post about my sister in law. She is now at home and Hospice has been called in. She is very weak and spends most of the time in bed.

I hate being so far away from my extended family. I hate not being there and helping in any way that I can. This really STINKS! I am so torn because I have 8 children that are participating in the musicals at our church which will take place the next two weekends. I cannot just pack up and go! What would they do if 8 of the cast members just pick up and leave town?

The song "Safe in His Arms" has been a great comfort to me. Wow! The hands that hold the World are holding my heart! He will be with us always! When Everything is falling apart, we will be safe in His Arms! I don't know about you, but this brings me tremendous comfort. I like being Safe In His Arms! I like to imagine His Arms Wrapped around me, holding me tight! There really is no better place.







TO THE ONE WHOSE DREAMS ARE FALLING ALL APART
AND ALL YOU’RE LEFT WITH IS A TIRED AND BROKEN HEART
I CAN TELL BY YOUR EYES YOU THINK YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN
BUT YOU’RE NOT ALONE


HAVE YOU HEARD OF THE ONE WHO CAN CALM THE RAGING SEA
GIVE SIGHT TO THE BLIND, PULL THE LAME UP TO THEIR FEET
WITH A LOVE SO STRONG AND NEVER LET YOU GO
NO YOU’RE NOT ALONE


YOU WILL BE SAFE IN HIS ARMS, YOU WILL BE SAFE IN HIS ARMS
‘CAUSE THE HANDS THAT HOLD THE WORLD ARE HOLDING YOUR HEART
THIS IS THE PROMISE HE MADE, HE WILL BE WITH YOU ALWAYS
WHEN EVERYTHING IS FALLING APART YOU WILL BE SAFE IN HIS ARMS


DID YOU KNOW THAT THE VOICE THAT BRINGS THE DEAD TO LIFE
IS THE VERY SAME VOICE THAT CALLS YOU NOW TO RISE
SO HEAR HIM NOW HE’S CALLING YOU HOME
YOU WILL NEVER BE ALONE


THESE ARE THE HANDS THAT BUILT THE MOUNTAINS
THE HANDS THAT CALM THE SEA
THESE ARE THE ARMS THAT HOLD THE HEAVENS
THEY ARE HOLDING YOU AND ME


THESE ARE THE HANDS THAT HEALED THE LEPER
PULLED THE LAME UP TO THEIR FEET
THESE ARE THE ARMS THAT WERE NAILED TO A CROSS
TO BREAK OUR CHAINS AND SET US FREE


SAFE IN HIS ARMS, SAFE IN HIS ARMS
SAFE IN HIS ARMS
WHEN EVERYTHING IS FALLING APART
YOU WILL BE SAFE IN HIS ARMS


Would you please remember Debbie in your prayers and also her husband (my brother) Rick, as well as their four children. They all really could use a touch from God right now. Please pray that God's presence will be felt in their lives and that He will heal, comfort, and bring Peace! I pray that the words of this song will minister to them as well!

Thinking of you and all your family. Your body is in one place and your heart in another.

I'm praying right now. I'm so far away from my family and I don't like it either. Praying for everyone.

I have been thinking of her lately and have been waiting for an update. Praying for Peace that is uncomprehendable.

Praying for you too as you are torn between two places.
