He Sings to Me

Okay, so I realize that this is going to sound extremely corny, but there is a reasoning behind it.  Stick with me.  So when I hear love songs on the radio, especially ones like Bruno Mars and this new one from One Direction, I imagine that Jesus is singing the song about me.  *putting a bag over my head*  Yep.  I do.  It looks and sounds goofier now that I type it out.

Here is why I do this.  Jesus is safe to me.  I can imagine Him singing these lyrics to me and REALLY meaning them with NO intentions behind them except to bless me.  Up until I met my dear husband, all the men I ever dated or had relationships with hurt me.  None of them loved me perfectly, even my Dad and EVEN my dear husband.  None of us are perfectly loved (or love perfectly) like God intended us to be, although some of us are blessed with loved ones who really are over the moon for us and put us first.  I have been blessed with family and husband who does see me for who I am and love me amazingly well. Huge blessings to me!!  But so many of us are still imperfectly loved or not loved enough or sadly, not at all.  Some of us feel empty in that area, and well I know when I feel emptier than I should that Jesus is a safe source of love.  I don't have to perform to earn his love. He doesn't expect anything from me in return to give me his love and attention.  And to boot, HE WANTS TO LOVE ME!

So I Googled how Jesus adores me and the Scripture Zephaniah 3:17 popped up in the search.  Has anyone ever heard of Zephaniah?  Me either.  That must be one of the least referenced books in the Bible bc seriously, I was like...where the heck is ZEPHANIAH!?  So Zeph says:

17 The LORD your God is with you,
   the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
   in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
   but will rejoice over you with singing.” 

Kaboom!  He takes great delight in YOU and WILL REJOICE OVER YOU WITH SINGING!  See, I knew there was a reason I do this!  I don't hear Jesus singing over me while I sleep at night or while I'm scrubba-dubbing the dishes, but whenever a love song comes on the radio I sense Him deep within whispering to me "this is how I feel about YOU, Christy!  I love and adore you, and I am enraptured by how your hair flips and how your smile reminds me of my creation.  I delight in who you are JUST BECAUSE of who you are."  Seriously, who among us doesn't want to melt into THAT kind of love!?

Yesterday I found myself overwhelmed by life AGAIN.  Come on, it's a lot for MANY of us!  And so I was crying in my big blue van and praying from my heart..."Jesus, I just need a big huge hug.  I mean a real hug with arms around me and my head of your chest."  I didn't feel any arms or chest at the moment, but I did stop crying, wipe my face and move on with my evening.  Then today as I'm driving around in my big blue van running errands it was song after song after song of these lyrics about how the guy adores this girl and appreciates who she is just for who she is, and how he sees her even though she doesn't think she's seen.  And then my heart squeezed tight in my chest and I felt Him say "this is your hug, baby girl. This is how I feel about you and you never have to look anywhere else for the filling.  I rejoice over you in song."   No man or songwriter can contend with the poetic love of Christ, and I rejoice over Him that He loves me so fully.

Enjoy this song and next time you hear it or another love song, imagine Jesus singing to you. :)

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up.
Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
