I am blessed with the greatest fiance for so many reasons. I could go on and on about why I love him so much, but I’ll spare you. I do want to say that Jeff is a great singer and songwriter, and I’ve been so blessed by the songs he’s written for me. When he sings to me, I feel so special, so loved. I’ve posted one of his most recent songs at the end of this post so you can see why his songs make my heart rejoice. Shhh, Jeff doesn’t know I’ve posted this 🙂
Did you know that the Bible says that our heavenly Father sings over us? Zephaniah 3:17 says, “The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”
Think about it. The God of creation actually sings over us. He loves us. God chose us to be his children before the creation of the world and he loves us! O how he loves us! Much like Jeff sings to me from a joyful heart, our heavenly Father rejoices over us with gladness.
It also says that he quiets us by his love. I can remember when Jorjanne was little and would wake up in the middle of the night scared by a nightmare. I spent many nights singing lullabys to her so that she could calm down; I was reassuring her of my love and so that she might find rest. God wants us to find rest from our everyday nightmares and allow his presence and his love to quiet any turmoil in our hearts and minds.
Did I mention that he sings over us? God. The God who made the heavens and the earth. The same God who made you and me — He sings over us! All I can say is WOW!
Take time today to bask in his glorious love.
