Some Samson-Shaped Shipyard-Sourced Spiritual Succour…

…and if you can’t cope with listening to something with no moving pictures for 45 whole minutes, I guess this is the crunch:

So – trust. God is in control. Even as you’re listening to the radio this morning, clench your fist to represent anything you’re clutching too tightly – desire for revenge, resentment, hatred, unforgiveness, a sense of being hard-done-by – and now slowly unclench your fist, open out your hand and spread out your fingers. These things are yours, Lord. I can’t hold on to them any more – they’re killing me. I don’t want to make Samson’s mistake and try to solve them myself. I trust you. I trust in your wrath as well as your love. I trust that with you there is justice as well as mercy. I trust that i can leave all the situations that are out of my control in your hands.
