His hands and mine

Anesthesia is a very 'hands-on' department. It requires a lot of skill to advance needles (in various places!) with just the right amount of pressure when administering anesthetic drugs prior to surgery.  Steady hands. Nimble fingers.  It may be easy to assume that anesthesiologists hold a lot of power in their hands when we do things quickly. It may be easier to think that a simple needle or catheter insertion has nothing to do with God or His hands either. I have always wanted to "paint" myself a reminder of the fact that - it is always His power that works through me.  Was. Is. And will be.  For as long as He has allowed it.  Underneath are His everlasting arms, keeping me steady.  "Praise the Lord, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle." Psalm 144:1
