Explanations for the “Helping Hands” Reading -

My name is Ken Hart. Our church started providing Daily Devotionals at the end of 2014. It has my been my privilege to put them together over this time period and I am thankful for the opportunity to continue with this ministry as we go forward. The Devotionals run Monday through Friday. Back around Thanksgiving I started posting stories on holidays and weekends. Stories are a big part of my work world. I have been a hospice Chaplain for over 8 years and the people I care for relate very well to stories. Going forward for a while, I thought I would post some of these stories on Saturdays and share on Sundays how I apply them to those I care for. The kind of needs I address day after day are universal and I am confident that the things I share on weekends will be helpful to everyone. This sharing coupled with the weekday Devotionals will give us something to relate to every day of each week.

Yesterday’s post is the fourth story I use in my work that I wanted to tell you about. Helping hands are important to all of us. Sometimes we extend helping hands to others and some others extend helping hands to us. Consider all the people you have helped and all those who helped you throughout your lifetime. Helping hands are a necessity in life (particularly for those who have reached a place of diminished capacity in their lives). The help we receive from other people means a lot to us, but the most meaningful help of all is the help we receive from God. He is the Master and we are the novice. With the assistance of his skillful hands, beautiful music comes forth from our lives.

Helping hands are a powerful image that remind us of the daily help we receive from God and other people. But they also remind us of how Jesus willing stretched out his hands and allowed himself to be nailed to the cross to provide the greatest help of all. Jesus died on the cross to secure for us forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and the gift of Heaven. Truly, our faith assures us that we are in good hands now and forever.

Once again we see the workings of faith in God. As a hospice Chaplain I consistently talk about faith in two ways. First, faith is the assurance that God loves us and is with us in Spirit every moment of every day he gives to us and is always helping us get through life in the best way possible. In whatever we face, God majors on producing in us a great sense of well-being by providing the peace and comfort of his presence. Second, faith is the assurance that in addition to his being with us in Spirit while we are here, we will be with him forever in Heaven someday when he is ready for us and says, “come on home.” These assurances are a great source of peace and comfort for us.

The stories I share with the people I visit, allow me to share again and again this two-fold understanding of faith from different angles. Each week I will share continue to share them with you and it is my hope that the lessons of faith gained from them will bless your life in special ways.

I advise you to write such sorts of posts daily to give the audience like me all the necessary info.
In my view, it is far better to be prepared for all the unexpected situations beforehand, so thanks, it was fairly cool.
