a good start to the week!

i thought i would share one of my morning devotions with you guys ... it's taken from today's reading in billy graham's "Day by Day" ... short thoughts - filled with big truths!  it would make a lovely present for someone ... blessings on ya!

"The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with  joy . . . "  Zephaniah 3:17

The world's millions could come down to the beach and reach out their hands to be filled with sea water.  They could each take as much as they wanted, as much as they needed - and still the ocean would remain unchanged.  Its might and power would be the same, the life in its unfathomable depths would continue unaltered, although it had supplied the needs of every single person standing with outstretched hands along its shores.  So it is with God.  He can be everywhere at once, heeding the prayers of all who call out in the name of Christ; performing the mighty miracles that keep the stars in their places, and the plants busting up through the earth, and the fish swimming in the sea.  There is no limit to God.  There is no limit to His love.  There is no limit to His mercy.

That's a great devotional. I've always loved that verse from Zephaniah. The thought of God rejoicing over us is a wonderful picture!

Dear Saija,
There is no one like God.
Isn't it really a wonder to be seen, loved and chosen by him?

I know that my redeemer liveth.
Even if it's almost too big for my thoughts to embrace.
There's no one like him, and He is given us for free.

May He bless you and lead you now and always.
