Some days we feel unloveable and/or unworthy of love. Those are usually the days we need to feel loved the most. For those of us who believe in God, the very idea of His love for us is so difficult to understand. How can we feel this love if we never see him? How is this love for us so deep and unconditional when we are so difficult? My friend Morgan introduced me to an amazing daily devotional book titled Jesus Calling. Every day that I read it, the relevancy of each devotion pierces through me. One of the verses for today was Zephaniah 3:17, and the image it evoked brought tears to my eyes:
The Lord my Creator
rejoices over me with songs.
My Heavenly Daddy tucks me into bed
with the sweetest of lullabies to calm all my fears.
Oh what love
that He would take off His crown to stoop,
kiss me on the forehead,
and collect the teardrops shed each day.
How beautiful, how wonderful
That my Mighty Savior
delights over me.
Oh what love.
