[ Writing from Okinawa, where I can justify not writing a Wisdom Wednesday until Thursday because “it’s Wednesday in the US”]
Last night I found myself thinking (Not worrying, I’m quite certain. I was just thinking, and not able to go to sleep. That’s all. And I was also trying to figure out all the details that are unknowable. But that’s definitely not worrying, I’m quite certain.)
I’ve often found comfort when worrying about my own life that God cares for me like a nursing mother. Last night I thought about this passage on behalf of my children, my extended family, and my local church.
It’s a good thought to think on. I don’t know and can’t control the future! There’s a lot of uncertainty, but I can rest knowing that those I love are engraved on God’s hands, and he cannot, will not, forget them.
Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. Isaiah 49:15-16
How is God’s Word changing you this week?
