It is always a profound gift to be taught by our dear friend and brother, Dr. Dan Allender. As a people shaped in part by experiences of trauma and betrayal, we often resist opening ourselves up to receive comfort. Dan offers us a beautiful reminder that God has bled for us, engraving our names in his palms, promising the kind of love that will never forget or forsake us.

Isaiah 49: 13-16
Reflection & Practice
Find some time this week to continue meditating on the words of Isaiah 49:
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
your walls are ever before me.
In the midst of whatever trials you may be facing, will you receive God’s comfort? Will you invite God to join you; even in your anger, grief, and doubt?
