Just a few days ago I was driving the long way home after the school drop-off. This is something I do whenever I am feeling stressed and busy and I need to reconnect with God. I call it a prayer drive. You see, I have been going through some heavy stuff lately. God is pruning me big-time! I am learning what bittersweet really means and how he can use all of our pain for good. For his glory. My pain has a purpose. Anyway, while I was driving I started to think about my walk with him and how I don't feel the joy that I used to feel when I first became a christian. I wondered if I would ever really feel how deep and how wide his love is for me. As I tried to remember some verses about love and joy God bought one in particular to my mind. Zephaniah 3:17 "He will rejoice over you with singing!" I had read it before, but this day I started to actually feel it, and not just his love for me but his joy too! The more I focused on it the more I felt it and the stress and sadness started to lift. Just like a lovers serenade he sings over us. Let that sink in for a minute. How amazing is this scripture! Full of hope!
