God Sings Over Us!
Did you realize that God sings over us with an deep, passionate love? The first time I read this scripture I cried with joy. The thought that the Lord would sing over me gripped my heart and melted away years of self-doubt and feelings of unworthiness. Look at the entire verse:
"The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing."
God. Sings. Over. You. You are cherished by Him. As a parent sings over their child to comfort and soothe, to show love and devotion, so God demonstrates His love to us. And imagine the song of the creator!
Don't think about the mistakes you've made, your inadequacies, or your past. Come to Him as a child and listen to the sweet refrain of the One who made you. Listen to the melody created just for you. Let Him wash away your fears, and fill you with hope. Embrace the song of the One who loves you more than anything.
Blessings on your day.
