Thought from Isaiah

"I have cared for you since you were born. Yes, I carried you before you were born. (ESV- "from the womb"). I will be your God throughout your lifetime- until your hair is white with age. I made you and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you (KJV- "deliver you"). Isaiah 46:3-4

A friend at church pointed this verse out to me recently... she is several years older than me and she said it was her new favorite verse. For a day or so, it was mine, too. :-) Even though my hair isn't yet white (okay, a few strands, maybe) I really love the idea of being God's little "baby" even when I am old. I love the idea of Him carrying me throughout my lifetime.

Yes, that is a very comforting verse to ponder. The very fact that we are His and He has us in His hands - all the days of our life. How amazingly wonderful1
