The Lord led me to this verse this morning:

“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,
he will rejoice over you with singing.”   Zephaniah 3:17

I thought to myself, I’ve never had anyone sing to me before.

But then, just like that, a memory came to me.  Clear as day, like it had happened yesterday.  I was probably 4 or 5 years old.  My Dad had sat me on the bathroom counter, next to the sink.  He was shaving.  And as he shaving, he was singing to me, “If you knew Susie, like I know Susie, OH! OH! OH what a gal!”

And then I believed.  If my biological father, a fallen man, sings to his child like this, yes, my Heavenly Father rejoices over me with singing.  It’s hard to wrap my mind around that.  But the Bible says it.  I believe.
