This morning as I sipped a Pumpkin Spice latte (very good for soul-searching), I read Zephaniah 3:17, which says, “The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.” I want to dive deep into this verse, and let it change my life. God delights in us! He delights in me. This is something that I often have a hard time believing. But I want God’s love to wash over me, to quiet my soul, to show me what is truth. I hope you know how much God loves you! Perhaps like me, you need to discover this in a new way today.

This verse brought to mind a neat song based on the words of this passage. Here is the song:

“Sing Over Me” by Bethany Dillon

I live in the wonder of Your love
You rise like the sun in my heart
Even when the night draws near to me
There You are

I will wade in the water of mercy
I will walk in the light of Your will
Whatever should come against me
Teach me to be still

As you Sing over me
Draw me close to rest in Your peace
Sing over me
Oh, sing

Sing of Your unending faithfulness
That knows no doubt or fear
In the face of all that I don’t know yet
Remind me of who You are

You are mighty
You will save
Rejoice over me with singing
You will quiet
By Your love
Glory over me with singing

    This is something I have to remind myself over and over again…that God delights in me. Thanks for reminding me once again. πŸ™‚


  2. Beth says:

    Amen, dear sister! That's beautiful. I just read about Rahab this morning and the fact that she was a prostitute, and still God used her in the line of Jesus! Our Papa must delight in us if He desires to use us sinners for His magnificent plan. πŸ™‚

    By the way…if you were sippin' a latte of such extravagant flavorings…does that mean you went to Starbucks? Merely wondering. πŸ˜‰


  3. Sarah H. says:

    Beth, I should go back and read the story of Rahab. Thanks for the suggestion. πŸ™‚ Yes, Kent gave me the day off so I took some Starbucks journaling time this morning. I know, I broke my “no excess spending in October” rule, but I needed that time. πŸ™‚

    Mom, glad I could remind you. πŸ™‚
