Inscribed on the Hands of God

Inscribed on the Hands of God

  One day, when I was discouraged and depressed, I read this passage in my Bible from Isaiah 49:   But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me, And my Lord has forgotten me.” “Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb?

I was comforted by His limitless promise to be faithful.   I thought, I have to do a drawing of this idea.   So I held out my own hand as a model and drew it. This is called “Inscribed.” 14″ x 17,” pencil on paper.   You will find over 300 names written within the creases and wrinkles of these hands.     Be encouraged.

"Inscribed," Pencil on Paper, by Matt Philleo

One day, when I was discouraged I read a verse in the Bible, in Isaiah, 49:15-16, where it says, "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. Behold, I have inscribed you on the palm of my hands." This verse brought such encouragement, that I created this original work of art to share the incredible love of God with others, including you!
