Ever wonder if God loves you? If God still loves you? Feel far away from God?
That’s fine. Actually it’s normal, especially when life get rough. (Life will get rough, see yesterday’s post, Trouble.)
My wife shared this verse with me, because it reminds her of God’s love. Feeling down and out? Lost? Alone? Tuck this one away for reference. Your name is tattooed on God’s hand:
Isaiah 49:14-16 (NIV)
14 But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me,
the Lord has forgotten me.”
15 “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!
16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
your walls are ever before me.
Your name, forever on God’s hand. What a beautiful image.
Prayer: Lord, me? On the palm of your hand? Tattoo your love on my soul. Amen.
