"Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me."

Isaiah 49: 15 - 16 NIV

"[And the Lord answered]Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, they may forget, yet will I not forget you.
Behold, I have indelibly imprinted (tatooed) a picture of you on the palm of each of My hands. O Zion, you walls are continually before Me."

Isaiah 49: 15 - 16 Amplified Bible

This verse means so much to me. To think how much a mother loves her child...and then to know He loves us infinately more...amazing and overwhelming.

I love this scripture and use it often when I speak on rejection. God knew that although it bizare that even mothers would forget their child, but praise God - He never does! I am continually falling more in love with Jesus everyday! Blessings! P.S. How about Psalm 45:10 in the NIV version - that will make you shout!
