“Isaiah 49:14-16 “But Zion said, The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.”
When we decide to leave the light of God, we lose the Holy Spirit and put up walls. Often we feel like He is not with us. But though we can’t feel Him, Christ was never the one who turned away from us. It was us that turned from Him. If we ever decided to come back to the light, it would be then that we realize through our darkest and loneliest hours Christ was not only right beside us, He carried us through it.
Christ is our constant companion. No matter what you do, no matter what you say, His love is still stretched out to you. The marks on His hands are an emblem that He felt every pain, including yours. Including mine. Every single soul on this earth. He knows you, and being the shepherd that He is, He only wishes you to allow Him to heal, and come and return to the Fold.
Psalm 55:22 “””Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”
