JJ Heller

I heard this song on the radio the other night on the way home from bible study (that was in and of itself very intense). I didn't quite catch the name of the song or the singer, I thought it was Helen.
The song I heard was Your Hands:

I have unanswered prayers
I have trouble I wish wasn't there
And I have asked a thousand ways
That You would take my pain away
That You would take my pain away

I am trying to understand
How to walk this weary land
Make straight the paths that crookedly lie
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave Your hands

When You walked upon the Earth
You healed the broken, lost, and hurt
I know You hate to see me cry
One day You will set all things right
Yea, one day You will set all things right

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave Your hands

Your hands
Your hands that shape the world
Are holding me, they hold me still
Your hands that shape the world
Are holding me, they hold me still

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave You when...

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave...
I never leave Your hands


I was working at the bookstore and saw an older cd of hers called The Pretty & the Plain on clearance for like $4, so I bought that one. Then had to download her Painted Red CD which had the Your Hands song on it.
So many songs just speaking so directly to my heart.

Isn't the load that you carry heavy? Isn't it time to let it down already? -Grow
