Isaiah on Mother's Day

Isaiah 49:23 – And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am the Lord: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.

Here’s me in a nutshell - a returned missionary, a newlywed, currently attending BYU in the Accounting program, and trying to understand Isaiah. To me, Isaiah is an untouched treasure chest; hopefully we’ll find the map, learn to read it, and open that chest together.

  1. I have always loved how Isaiah evokes motherhood to help us understand God’s committed love to us as sinners, which begins in Isaiah 49:15 and is finished in Isaiah 49:16

    15 “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!
    16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
    your walls are ever before me. (New International Version)
