I am so thankful for Skype – that George and Jane Jetson type of technology that allows me to see the precious face of my grandson Isaiah each week on my computer screen. Last week as he came into view I was treated to a vigorous ukulele serenade of “Kinkle, kinkle yittle tar”. For those not fluent in toddler speak, that’s the two-year old version of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”. To be sung over with such love and enthusiasm blessed my heart beyond belief.
Not so long ago as I studied the scriptures I read that there is another who sings over me in His love. Zephaniah 3:17 tells me that “The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” Did I read that right? The Lord of the universe is actually rejoicing and singing over me! That knowledge is almost too wonderful for me to fathom.
It is a humbling thought to know that God rejoices over me even in my imperfection. How grateful I am to know that I am loved no matter how out of tune my life seems at times. That kind of devotion stirs a song of praise in my own heart even knowing that whatever offering I lift in response is but a tiny reflection of the masterful music that He has poured out over me. Still I know He hears my song with the ears of love, just as I hear Isaiah’s song, and is blessed.
Oh Lord, I could sing of Your great love forever. Thank-you for Your gift of music in my life and let me lead my life as symphony of love devoted to You.
