Recently while Tim and I were having dinner out with my brother and sister-in-law we ran into a couple that we have met before and have spent time in their home and yet when I said hello to them they didn’t recognize us at all. To be fair I had recently gotten my hair cut and colored and they do see many people but that little encounter got me thinking about God and my relationship with Him and how I am not so forgettable to Him. A few scriptures flooded my memory as God spoke to me “The very hairs of your head are all numbered.” Luke 12:7a. “Your name is written on the palm of my hand.” Isa 49:16 He collects in a bottle every tear I shed. Psalm 56:8. “I will never forget you. Though a mother may forget her nursing child, I will never forget you.” Isa 49:15. “I will never leave you nor will I ever forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5b

It is so comforting to know we are loved like that by the God of the universe.

Human relationships are so well, human and imperfect. They can never satisfy in the way that a relationship with God does and will always more than likely disappoint but a relationship with God never does. Human relationships are temporary at best but a relationship with God is eternal.

What can I possibly say to a love like that but “Thank you Lord for loving your children like that.”
