Where Are Your Initials Inscribed?

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.
