Just what I need…

Life has some how gotten a little out of focus lately. You know, focused on me, rather than Him. You know, focused on the stress of everyday life rather than the blessings of a new day. You know, more focused on the budget than the Bible… I kind of feel like I have been walking around without my glasses on or my contacts in… I have just enough vision to make it down the hall to the bathroom, but not enough to make sure I have not actually arrived in the closet… I have just been out of focus. Not feeling well, all around, emotionally, physically, spiritually and mentally…

Then… just when I needed it… He speaks… okay He always speaks to me, but like most of us I am sure, sometimes I don’t listen… well, tonight I heard Him loud and clear. I know that the quiet house, the only noise is the dishwasher running, the peaceful dim light, comfortable couch and the warmth of the puppy, “helped” me hear Him. But really, tonight, I wanted to… I waited until I heard Him. Just sitting, listening to the water move around in the dishwasher, just waiting for Him to speak. And He did and it was powerful… Here’s what He said…

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, be will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17)

Yep, it just came out of no where, I had to look it up to find the scripture address. You see, He is with me at work, He is with me as I drop Isaac of at daycare, He is with me as I clean the house, put the laundry away and do the dishes, hey He is even with me as I “window” shop at the mall… He is mighty to save, He will not let me fall into the depths just for fun. He is on my side, He takes delight in me. ME, perfectly unperfect me. He is interested in my thoughts, my heart’s desires, my worries, my stresses, my bad days, my good days, my fasination with the dollar store, He is interested in all of me. He will quiet me with His love. He will surround me as I sit and listen to the water move around in the dishwasher. He will give me peace as I lay next to Andrew and remember what it was like 3 years ago. He will run His fingers over my eyebrows as I drift off to sleep. Just image, falling alseep on the lap of the One and Only. You know, the One who created the Heaven’s and the Earth. That is the One who rejoices over me with singing. He is so in love with me, so consumed by me, so proud of me, so interested in me, that He rejoices with song… I don’t think I have ever broke out in song to express my love for my husband… trust me, it would not be a loving, romantic gesture… but Him, He’s different. His voice is perfect I’m sure, I’ve heard it… Have you?
