He Sings Over You
December 5th, my husband and I were overjoyed to welcome into our family, our tenth grandchild. Isabelle Aurora Warkentin is a sister to 2 year-old Elijah, and 5 year-old Mikayla.
This morning, my daughter Connie sent a video in the family link of Mikayla singing to her baby sister. Just before she sang, she spoke these words to her mommy, "She's just so cute I have tears. I can't stop wiping my tears." Mikayla then began to sing as she held her baby sister in her arms.
My daughter had trouble restraining her own tears as she videoed the touching scene. The moment I viewed it, emotions poured out of me too. It was so sweet and pure and loving.
Then I remembered ... God sings over me too.
"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." (Zephaniah 3:17)
The concept that the God who created the universe would love little old me so much, that He would sing over me, is almost more than my human mind can comprehend.
Do you know this God of the universe?
"Jesus said, I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father (God) except through me." John 14:6
"For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but will have eternal life." John 3:16
Don't you want Him singing over you?
