On the palms of His hands..

"See, i have engraved you on the palms of my hands." - Isaiah 49.16

"I have graven thee." It does not say, "Thy name." The name is there, but that is not all: "I have graven thee." See the fulness of this! I have graven thy person, thine image, thy case, thy circumstances, thy sins, thy temptations, thy weaknesses, thy wants, thy works; I have graven thee, everything about thee, all that concerns thee; I have put thee altogether there. Wilt thou ever say again that thy God hath forsaken thee when He has graven thee upon His own palms?" - Spurgeon

Thank you for those encouraging words! How true it is that God never lets go even when He seems to have forgotten about us. When I look back on the hardest parts of my life I see that He always had a purpose in mind like a potter shaping a lump of clay.

I really appreciate the spiritual depth of your blog, and you have been in my prayers.
