A Dove in His Hand

A Dove in His Hand

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

Flying solo through life,

Searching for my way.

Heavy is the strife

That seems to be my stay.

 

Though the wind blows,

It catches not my sail.

I can’t do it on my own,

A dove in His hand, I am frail.

 

Lean I on Him,

For He protects me

As a precious gem.

The Lord Holy.

 

As the sky is vast,

So too, are His plans.

I shall never lack,

I’m a dove in His hand.

We are his children and also at the top of his list of creations. We may be held in one of his hands while the dove is in the other.

Lovely write. The dove in hand implies it's wounded or unable to care for itself. I think we are all a bit like that, in some ways, I think.

"As the sky is vast,
So too, are His plans.
I shall never lack,
I’m a dove in His hand."
