17For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”Zephaniah 3:17
This is one of my favorite pictures in scripture. It is intimacy, love, security and joy all wrapped up into one grand image of God’s heart toward his children. Just as a child, nestled in her parent’s arms, is soothed by the soft song of love sung over her, God holds me. He calms my fears. He soothes my worries. He sings songs of love over me.
In the past, I wrote regarding God’s voice in my life. It is quiet, surprising, expected, extravagant and humble all at the same time. It is the rustling of the birds through the trees; it is the waves rythmically moving in and out on the beach; it is the laughter of children; it is the quietness of butterflies; it is the breeze in the trees. I don’t want to miss a single moment or any whisper of God’s love for me.
That is my prayer for you today. May your hearts be filled with the knowledge and power of his loving presence in all of its magnificent calm.
What will you do to ensure you don’t miss a single thing?
