Stop trying so hard to be so smart
about a sweet Savior.
Instead, give yourself permission
to delight in Him
like you would a cupcake, the warm sun
or the sound of baby giggles coming from the gut.
Stop taking the whole thing so seriously…
stop taking yourself so seriously
Laugh so hard you cry.
Laugh so that those around you
wonder what it is that is so delightful.
Sit snuggled in our Father’s great big
wide open love for you.
Rest in His strong arms
able to carry you always.
And delight in Him
for He so deeply delights in you
…today, everyday, forever.
For the Lord your God is living among you.
He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.
