I think this caption illustrates the point of letting our lives in every way be handed over to God. We think we have things in control but then trials happen to remind us of our need for Him.
How weak are our hands? Mine are very weak. We can wring our hands over distress and cry into our hands with sadness but it doesn't do any good. His hands tho are mighty. Even the ocean won't go past the boundaries His hands have set. 'He's got the whole world in His hands', as the song says.
How wise are we? Hopefully, you are wise enough to know how little we know. 'His thoughts and ways are far beyond ours.' If we would follow His lead then our paths in life would be so much smoother. The book of Proverbs is a whole book on helping us get wisdom and showing us how to live wisely.
How deep is your love? Love on earth is often conditional and fleeting. God loved us while we were still sinners and yet loved us enough to send His Son to save us from that sin. I know I want my life in a secure, unconditional love.
What can I give to you God when you've given me so much? My life and all that it includes in it, the good and the bad I hand it over to You.
