He Sings Over Us

Sing, O daughter of Zion;
      shout aloud, O Israel! 
   Be glad and rejoice with all your heart
The Lord your God wins victory after victory 
and is always with you.
He celebrates and sings because of you,
and He will refresh your life with His love.
Zephaniah 3

When God leads you to Zephaniah 3,
you know it is going to be a good day.
This beautiful portion of Scripture
tells us why our heart should be eternally glad.
He is living.
He is a mighty Savior.
He delights in us.
He calms all our fears with His love.
He rejoices over us with songs.
No matter what is going on today, 
I need to pause and think about this great truth!
All day long, aware or not,
worshipping Him or washing dishes,
He is delighting in me.
It just doesn't get any better than this declaration
of eternal presence, constant victory, 
non-stop celebration and song
"...daughter, because of you."

He is an ever present Friend
who sings over me.
Wake up, oh my soul, and listen to the One 
who sings over you.
Jesus, You are so worthy of everything that I am.
By Your mercy and grace, I give back to You 
everything that You gave to me.
I believe that You are refreshing my life today.
With Your love and Your song.
You are eternally good.
