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. - Zephaniah 3:17
Dear Heavenly Father, I know how I gushed over my kids and grandkids when they were little. Even now I can't disconnect from them. As their lives go, so goes my life. It is very comforting for me to know that you feel the same way about me, especially when I read in this verse that you don't just watch me, but you work hard to make my life better. By grace alone you have chosen me as your child and I feel your love in so many ways. Help me to live in the confidence of knowing I am in your arms and that through your Son you are gaga over me. AMEN
God loves us more than we could ever imagine. If we can imagine that he loves us at all, we won't be able to stop smiling.
