Midweek Morsel: Not Forgotten

5653784413_fbb8f58b0b_zLong term trials have a way of wearing us down—in more ways than one. Whether it’s ongoing illness, unemployment, marital problems, teenage rebellion, or any number of other anguish inducing situations, we soon grow weary physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We eventually wonder if God has forgotten us.

If today you feel that God doesn’t hear your cries anymore or that he doesn’t care about you, remember that he loves us so much he sent his only Son to be our Savior. Take heart with these words of encouragement from my poem Trust in Him:

“And when you finally feel
Like God has forgotten you,
He’ll show you He hasn’t—
Trust in Him.”

Father, show the weary and hurting your love!

“I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands.” Isaiah 49:15 NRSV

A blessed Easter to all!

  1. This Easter proves His love for us.

  2. Exactly, Nancy. He dearly love us and will not forget us.

  3. Hi Cheryl,

    That is a lovely verse from Isaiah, isn’t it? I have heard that the term “engraved” actually means “Carved.” Wow,that’s powerful in this season especially, huh?

    Re your comment on my post “Beneath the Mom Hat… It Stirs,” …Photography is something I have always been curious about, and something my husband enjoyed in college. I’ll have to browse through your site, looking for more of your photos. Do you mark the ones you take? Good job for pursuing that art in you!

    Happy Easter.

  4. Jennifer, thanks for encouraging my photography interest. I don’t have a big fancy camera — just a good point and shoot with a great zoom lens — but I’ve been able to get some pretty good shots with it.

    Here on the blog, I don’t mark all of my own photos, but if I don’t give attribution to someone else at the end of the post, the photo is probably mine. Enjoy browsing! :)
