My God Rejoices Over Me

“As a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.” Isaiah 62:5

It is hard for me to believe that just a year ago, I was as huge as a house and waiting for my precious daughter to arrive! She was as snug as a bug in my womb. Without the help of my doctor and medication, who knows when Alyssa would have decided to enter this world? Needless to say, Alyssa is here and more wonderful than we could have imagined. We recently celebrated her first birthday and watched with wonder as she dug into her very first “smash cake.” Although she was in a pretty pink dress, we encouraged Alyssa to eat her cake and ice cream with her hands – It was a hoot! Truthfully, we could not get enough pictures. We could not keep our eyes off of our precious daughter. And we are so thankful to be her parents. Today, I rejoice over my sweet Alyssa Lyn.

Although today may not be your birthday, I have some great news to share with you! According to the verse above, God is rejoicing over you this day. He can’t get enough glimpses of you. He can’t imagine this world without you. He is honored to be your Heavenly Father. And He is so in love with you!

While most of us only celebrate those we love once a year, God rejoices over us every single day. So go ahead and grab a sweet treat and know that while you are enjoying your scrumptious dessert God is rejoicing over you this day!

Prayer:
“Lord, thank you for loving me. I am amazed that You rejoice over me each day! Help me to drink in this truth deep within my spirit. Open my ears to hear what You want to tell me today. Please silence the voice of the world and everyone around me. I want to only hear Your voice, Jesus. Just knowing that you love me and rejoice over me is going to make this a wonderful day.” Amen.

  2. Zephaniah 3:17 “The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”

    Amen! Children bring out the best in us. Not everyday, but most. I try to look for the moment where it confirms my place, my season in motherhood. Thank you Jesus for thinking that highly of me that you would give me such a gift, my precious promise Julia!

  4. AWWWWW! Happy Birthday Sweet Alyssa. I am sure it was a great one. This was yet again, a great post. But I am going to forgo the sweets, to many comfort foods this weekend. 🙂

  5. Happy Birthday to your gift from God!

    [we encouraged Alyssa to eat her cake and ice cream with her hands] My daughter entered my home by adoption when she was 7. On her 8th birthday, she insisted on smearing cake and ice cream all over her face. “Everyone has a picture like that.” So, we re-did one at the skating rink… in front of everyone. As I write this I realize that she has grown to care to much about what others think. She would not want to appear “wierd” by acting like this in public now. She would miss a moment of healing.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  7. What a great visual! “Grab a sweet treat…and know that God is rejoicing over you this day”!!! I love that!

    I can imagine God sitting down with me, sharing a cup of Starbucks coffee and some “Light Rocky Road Ice Cream”, rejoicing with me EVERYDAY of my life!!

    I love that He loves me! I marvel that He forgives me! And I smile to know that He smiles with me!

    I know your day with Alyssa was unforgettable! Can’t wait to see you soon and share in the celebration (a little late)

    Many, Many Blessings!
