OneWord 2014: Inscribed

I'd read the verse several times before, but this time, everything changed. The words came to life and jumped off the page at me.

Isaiah 49:15-16
15) "Can a woman forget her nursing child and have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you.
16) "Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.

That promise is more than I can wrap my mind around. I am inscribed on His hands. When Jesus looks at those nail scars, He sees me. He sees my broken past, my failures and fears, my sins - but they don't matter anymore, because I am inscribed.

I am inscribed on His hands, and that changes everything.

I want to live my life knowing that I am fully and completely His. I want to make decisions that are grounded in His Word. This year, I want to learn what it really means to be inscribed.


  1. What a wonderful thought, Amanda, that when He sees those scars, He sees us. Have a wonderful 2014!

  2. Love this word for your year!

  3. Isaiah 49:16 is one of my all time favorite verses - "your walls are ever before me". It melts my heart every single time I read it. Thanks for the reminder! Loved your post!


I would love to hear your thoughts!
