You Dance Over Me...

Dear baby: God danced the day you were born. What a day of joy as He gave you as a gift to Himself. Through your infancy and teenage years He will continue to rejoice over you, because His love is never based on your performance, never conditional by your moods, and will never know any shadow of change. Brennan Manning

Zephaniah 3:11-17
On that day you will not be put to shame for all the wrongs you have done to me, because I will remove from this city those who rejoice in their pride.Never again will you be haughty on my holy hill.

But I will leave within you the meek and humble, who trust in the name of the LORD.

The remnant of Israel will do no wrong; they will speak no lies, nor will deceit be found in their mouths.They will eat and lie down and no one will make them afraid."

Sing, O Daughter of Zion; shout aloud, O Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, O Daughter of Jerusalem!

The LORD has taken away your punishment, he has turned back your enemy. The LORD, the King of Israel, is with you; never again will you fear any harm.

On that day they will say to Jerusalem, "Do not fear, O Zion; do not let your hands hang limp.

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."
