15 “Never! Can a mother forget her nursing child?
Can she feel no love for the child she has borne?
But even if that were possible,
I would not forget you!
16 See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands.
Always in my mind is a picture of Jerusalem’s walls in ruins.
New Living Translation (NLT)
My favourite bit of these couple of verses is “16 See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands.“
After you have been asked if you know of something or some place, do you ever catch yourself saying “Yeah, yeah! I know it like the back of my hand!”
Well, that’s how God knows you.
Great thought, eh?
