My Delight Is In You

(photo source

My Beloved One,

Do you remember as a little girl how you would dance and twirl, longing for someone to pay attention to you?  You longed to be cherished, treasured in the eyes of those whom you loved.  I know there were often times when you felt unloved, uncared for, uncherished.  You worked so hard to be seen, to be forever imprinted in the eyes of those whom you loved.

Can I tell you something?  I cherished you then, and I cherish you now.

I take great delight in you.  You bring me so much joy, and you don’t have to do anything.

My delight is in you, simply for who you are.

You are My Child.

You are My Daughter.

You are My Princess.

You are My Beloved One.

You are My Bride.

You captivate me when you glance My way, if even for a moment.  I cannot take my eyes off of you.

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. (Zephaniah 3:17)

I want you to know today how much joy you bring to My heart.  I will forever cherish you, simply because you are worth being cherished.

Until tomorrow,

*This is Day 22 & 23 of a 31 Day series on Coffee Talk With Jesus.  You can find all of the posts in this series here.  I pray you are blessed as you read.

  1. This verse in Zephaniah is one of my very favorites! Reminds me of a mother singing a lullaby, graduation, weddings, parties, a moonlight serenade, etc. Music just goes hand in hand with love and joy!
