“There are many persons to be found who are bowed down with despondency of spirit, and cannot lift up themselves to enjoy a comfortable hope.  Let such take heart from the case before us; and let them also remember that the Lord does not now forget the sorrowful and broken-hearted.  We see this expressly stated in:”

Isaiah 49

 13 Shout for joy, O heavens! And rejoice, O earth!
Break forth into joyful shouting, O mountains!
For the Lord has comforted His people
And will have compassion on His afflicted.

Promise to Zion

14 But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me,
And the Lord has forgotten me.”
15 “Can a woman forget her nursing child
And have no compassion on the son of her womb?
Even these may forget, but I will not forget you.
16 “Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands;

  1. 15 “Can a woman forget her nursing child
    And have no compassion on the son of her womb?
    Even these may forget, but I will not forget you.

    One of my favorite verses. Especially given the abortive world we live in. It is possible for a mom to forget her baby as we see that happening everyday, but the LORD will not forget his people.

      We are particularly concerned about this issue, Delight. It is always nice to find someone who is very opposed to abortion.

      As you have stated, the Lord will not forget. I believe every aborted child will be in heaven. Some disagree, but that’s my opinion.

      I always appreciate your comments, Delight.

      God’s blessings…
