This afternoon I was sitting in my classroom singing ‘he’s got the whole world in his hands’ with year 11 pupils – obviously!
Over the last couple of weeks I have given talks, and listened to talks about faith – it’s our theme for this term.
And yet… I struggle to hear the words for myself.
I’m hoping through typing it might sink in!
I imagine we’ve all had to carry something that we have needed help and support with. There’s probably even been times when someone has had to take something out of our hands because we just cannot manage to carry it any further. Then of course, there are the times where we are holding up people because we are being weighed down.
This happens, not only physically, but metaphorically!
Sometimes it will be friends, family, colleagues that wee Ned to seek support from, or who might take things from us.
However, sometimes we need to recognise that actually there’s nothing we can do, we need to hand it over, we need to trust that our loving father has got it in hand, and have faith that good will come out. We need to focus on what we can do, where we can make a difference, and not worry about tomorrow – after all, tomorrow will worry about itself!
