It is kind of annoying isn’t it? You walk along a beautiful trail in the greatness of God’s creation and people have engraved their initials on a tree. But which makes less sense: The engraving of these initials or my thinking they’re worthy of a picture?
The truth is, something compelled me to take this pic.
If I returned to Fish Creek Falls and traverse this trail a second time, those initials would still be there. As long as that aspen tree exists, those initials will endure.
Are your initials inscribed somewhere? A tree, park bench or telephone pole?
Like Israel, your initials have been engraved in God’s hands.
“Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me.” Isaiah 49:16 English Standard Version
More enduring than the ink of a Sharpie is the fact that your initials have been written upon God’s palms with the everlasting blood of Jesus shed for you.
I don’t know what you’re facing today; the joys, pains and stuff of life. But know this God has you engraved in his hands.
