My God Sings over me..

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. I will gather those of you who mourn for the festival, so that you will no longer suffer reproach. Behold, at that time I will deal with all your oppressors. And I will save the lame and gather the outcast, and I will change their shame into praise and renown in all the earth. At that time I will bring you in, at the time when I gather you together; for I will make you renowned and praised among all the peoples of the earth, when I restore your fortunes before your eyes, says the Lord.” Zephaniah 3:17-20

I absolutely love this passage. To know that my God, my Father in heaven, sings over me, HE QUIETS ME WITH HIS LOVE… it just amazes me and reminds me of babies. I love to sing to babies, especially when they are upset. My mom works in the baby room at the preschool we both work at and I love just going in ans sitting and playing with them, or caressing them to sleep . I love the image of a father soothing his child by his love and gentle voice.

Let him sing over you, listen to His gentle voice and let him quiet you with his love.
