We sang a beautiful song in church yesterday morning.
The words tumbled over me, a refreshing shower of truth for my soul.
“Behold He has come over the hills
upon the mountains
To me You have run, my Beloved,
You have captured my heart.
Dance with me O lover of my soul
To the song of all songs
Romance me O lover of my soul
To the song of all songs “
Harmonizing with this beautiful melody came the words of my Father:
“I’ve given you a gift Heather – a gift to woo you. Through this gift I’m hoping to romance your heart, win you over in a new and deeper way.”
They say children are a gift from God but have you ever thought about why God chooses to give this amazing gift? Most of us know and believe and say a child is a blessing, but why?
Have you considered that God gives this gift to romance you? To woo you? To pursue your heart?
The magnitude of this truth blew me away and yesterday I fell deeper in love with my God. He truly is a good God, a generous God and the ultimate romantic. Man gives flowers and chocolates to woo, and the Lord gives this!
James 1:17 “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
