He Rejoices Over You With Singing

"God sings over you like songbirds..."

“God rejoices over you with singing!” He longs for you to know how loved you are. And like a father, He takes great delight in you as His beloved child. That truth was displayed for me.


I sat on my screened-in porch on a cool morning quietly reading scripture while enjoying the stillness and sipping my hot cup of coffee. My eyes fell on that line of scripture in Zephaniah. I grabbed my journal to record the verse as I pondered its meaning. “Does God the Creator of the universe take such delight in me that He rejoices over me with singing?” I wondered. And then as though to answer my thoughts a strong breeze kicked up and blew steadily. The various windchimes hanging from the ceiling and eaves around me produced a symphony of music. It was as though the Creator was singing a song to me. And as though not to be outdone, birds in my garden chimed in with their voices in melodic songs.


I laughed in delight! Completely awed that the quiet morning was now filled with music from the dancing windchimes and the singing songbirds in my garden, I reveled in the moment. God was displaying the truth of that verse to my heart.


God does indeed sing and rejoice over us!


"Wind chimes played a symphony..."

In the same way a mother soothes a child with a soft lullaby, He sings songs of comfort to you. And similar to a family gathered around a loved one to celebrate a birthday in song, He celebrates you too. Like a lively song we may sing and dance to, let Him energize your soul with His refreshing love and Presence.


“He rejoices over you with singing…”


My tired body was suddenly energized by this scripture and the reality of His truth displayed in nature by His Divine Hand orchestrating a beautiful life lesson through windchimes and birds.


What about you? Do you need comfort? Let Him sing over you like a mother through a gentle worship song. Maybe He wants to show you how He celebrates you! Let Him reveal that to you in a song or through His Creation. Let Him renew and energize your soul today as He did mine. Pause and listen for the love song He wants to sing over you.

"Listen for His love song He wants to sing over you..."


Nature reflects My heart for you. If you but have eyes to see or ears to hear, I am displaying and revealing My love for you. Listen to My love song. I delight in you My precious one.



“The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a mighty Savior. He will rejoice over you with gladness and renew you in His love. He will sing joyfully over you, as one sings at festivals.” (Zephaniah 3: 17)



“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is His faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-23)
