Isn't it amazing

Tonight I was reading a fabulous blog keeping awake. When you have a few empty hours and a new box of kleenex, you need to read her blog, follow her heart-rending story, and be amazed and strengthened by her honest reflections on her faith.

She quoted a verse that I haven't really noticed before.

Isaiah 49:16, "Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands..."

Hundreds of years before Jesus was born, a prophet foretold of his humble birth and horrible death. And that, through the nail scars, we would be forever inscribed on the palms of His hands, never to be forgotten.

My friends, that right there is comfort.
