|"My peace I give you" written on the palm of my hand.|
"Notes to myself," I replied.
You see, I've gotten into the habit of writing bits of Scripture on the palm of my hand. Occasionally, I write a note, a phone number, something I need to remember, but usually I write a phrase from Scripture that I can refer to throughout the day. Notes I can keep constantly before my eyes.
"My peace I give you..."; "My trust is in You...."; "Believe ye that I am able..."; "My refuge and my strength...".
These words are constant reminders to me; they help me keep a godly perspective throughout my busy day. By a godly perspective I mean one that is in line with His word.
Isn't it amazing that we are so dear to God that He has us engraved upon the palms of His hands?
"Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands..." Isaiah 49:15,16a (NIV).
