Are we really starting week 10? Or am I off a week? I have gotten behind in posting for the Bible in 90 days, but it is mostly because I am a little ahead of schedule and never know if I should post what everyone else is reading or what I am reading…
So, for this week I’m going to share a little bit of both. 🙂 I want to share a favorite verse of mine from Zephaniah, it is probably one of your favorites, too! But, I want to share about how God used this verse (and others) at a recent women’s retreat.
“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.”
How many of you really, I mean REALLY believe those words??
Do you believe that God takes great delight in you? I know that I don’t.
Do you believe that He rejoices over you?
I want to believe, Lord, help my unbelief.
At our recent women’s retreat, the speaker, Jana Spicka, used this passage several times:
“The king is enthralled by your beauty;
honor him, for He is your Lord.”
Now, it’s hard for me to imagine God delighting in me, much less that He finds me beautiful. But, He does!! And that goes for YOU, TOO!!
Do you believe that God created us in His image?
Do you believe God’s Word when He says that everything He made was good?
Do you believe that God is beautiful?
If the answer to these questions is YES, then you have to take that one final step further — YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL in God’s eyes!! God created us in His Image. I love to sing about His beauty…I love to tell Him He is beautiful to me…and the realization that He loves to tell me that as well is a bit overwhelming. But, I’m learning and growing and trusting Him…He is singing over us, sweet friends. He is delighting in us. He created us in His Image and we are beautiful. Lovely children, lovely daughters and sons that look just like their daddy. Oh, the thought…
