“listen to the love song”

zephaniah 3.17.001

Waking this morning to the sounds of birds chirping . . . 
No wait . . . Nope, w.r.o.n.g.!   Living in the middle of a developing area, surrounded by all kinds of places to eat and to shop, multi-story business buildings, and various types of residential places, it’s a rare day to wake to seeming quiet.  And on this my last week day of spring break, iI was grumbling a bit in my mind when I woke to the sounds of construction, delivery trucks, and a sundry of loud voices.  So opening the pages of Jesus Calling today, these words put me in a big WOAH!

“Listen to the love song that I am continually singing to you.  I take great delight in you.  I rejoice over you with singing. The voices of the world are a cacophony of chaos, pulling you this way and that.  Don’t listen to these voices; challenge them with My Word.  Learn to take minibreaks from the world, finding a place to be still in My Presence and listen to My voice.” 

. . . then I read the Zephaniah verse.  My heart went WOW!

My mind flashes back to when the kids were little – from just hours old to still big enough to sit in my lap,with legs sprawling close to the floor, or lying in bed – I would sing to them.   Singing was part of my delight in motherhood.  Whether it was during a time of calm or during a time of distress, I would sing. I knew my children knew my voice and I knew that the sounds of singing would bring a calming quiet to the present discord.  They knew my love.

I loved reading the words “cacophony of chaos” ~ I so relate!

*harsh discordance of sound; dissonance: a cacophony of hoots, cackles, and wails.
*a discordant and meaningless mixture of sounds
 
 
We live in a cacophony of chaos.  But how awesome is it to know that our Creator delights in us, He quiets us with his love.  He continually sings over us.  Now that is a love song!
 
We just have to stop and LISTEN to His voice!
 
Take time to listen to His Love Song.

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
