Hand Of God

Title: Hand of God
Original: 2001, 7x15 inches, watercolor and acrylic on Arches

This text was used by King Edward of England in his1939 Christmas broadcast to his people as WW II was spreading across Europe.

The poem: 1908 by Minnie Louise Haskins [1875-1957], American lecturer at the London School of Economics. . Apparently she was astonished to hear her poem read by the King; she gave royalties earned from the poem to charity. After the King’s death, the Queen Mother had bronze plaques engraved for the entrance to the King George VI Memorial Chapel, Windsor.

The message: The future is uncertain, but trust in God who promises to hold and guide, help us live the present in hope. Isaiah 41:10 - “I am your God, I will strengthen, help and uphold you with my victorious right hand.” Hebrews 11:8 - “By faith, Abraham trusted God ... he went out not knowing where he was going.”
