On God's Own Palm

A priest friend once told me that no matter how miserably we fail or screw things up we should not lose sight of the bigger picture. No matter how we try to give our best effort, no matter how we work things out or prepare for the worse, shit really happens. Rather than sulk in frustration or dismay let us remember that things happen for a reason and that God draw something beautiful even from chaos.

And just to remind us, though we may stumble and fall, we remain on God's own palm. He sees us. He knows what is happening to us and in us. We need never be afraid because He always beholds us with His loving and eternal gaze.

Isaiah 49:15, 16

“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget, I will not forget you!
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands...”
