God’s Song to You


One of my favorite passages is Zephaniah 3:17.


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.


Although the entire verse shows us how much God loves us, lately I’ve been thinking about that last part: “He rejoices over you with singing.” Depending on your Bible translation, the verse could say any of the following:


  • He will make a song of joy over you as in the time of a holy feast.
  • He will celebrate over you with shouts of joy.
  • He will sing and be joyful over you.
  • He will delight in you with shouts of joy.
  • He will joy over thee with singing.
  • He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.
  • He will sing and be joyful about you.
  • He will exult over you by singing a happy song.
  • He will exult over you with loud singing.
  • He’ll delight you with his songs.
  • He will joy over thee with singing.
  • He will have joy over you with loud singing.


Regardless of the translation, the message is still the same:


God digs you!


He celebrates you!


He serenades you with His songs!


Did you hear that, dear one? God sings to you. He serenades and celebrates you. Yes, you! Y’know, He takes great delight in you. Are you listening to His song? Can you hear it? What is He singing?

I hear Him telling me He loves me. He doesn’t want me to push myself so hard–I don’t need to prove myself to Him or others. I hear Him reassuring me I’m not the person I used to be and not to let anyone tell me differently. He’s encouraging me to enjoy life–Him, my family, and my friends. He’s speaking peace to my mind and to my heart. He says, “Laugh.”

Come alongside… What is He singing to you?

    He’s been saying to me that I’m losing some important things in my life by burying myself in my writing. 🙂 Crazy to say that, eh? I’m trying to get books published, do editing, and struggle through rewrites. I end up in a “cave” all day while the sun shines outside and relationships slip away. So, I’ve cracked the shell forming around me and I’m looking for different avenues, which God might nudge me to walk down.

    Thank you,

      That’s a great song, Karen.

      The Lord loves you and has placed a wonderful talent in you. He wants you to write but not at the exclusion of other things. (I’m speaking to myself.) It can be hard to swallow–as is mine, but it is possible to find different avenues. I know you know what I mean. 🙂

      Crack the shell, my friend.

      Love and hugs!

  • “I don’t need to prove myself to Him or others. ” This really speaks to me and I would add, I don’t need to prove myself to myself. Sounds that you and me (and probably most women we know) push ourselves to fulfill this list of expectations. That is not the way to peace. Hug to you my friend.

      Oh, I think you hit a touchy spot, Jamie. I guess I should have added that part to mine. Sometimes it’s all the expectations in my head–all the “shoulds.”

      Thanks for that reminder. Hope we can shrug off some of those shoulds today. 🙂
