The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing."
I have been anticipating my 40th birthday coming this week. I am not quite sure what to think about that other than the fact that it is a reality and there is nothing I can do about it's coming. One of the hardest things for me on my birthday, and in life really, is receiving. In my anxiety of the anticipation of the "big" day, I came across this verse. above. I felt like the Lord had something to "give" to me through this verse that specifically applied to my birthday. So I am practicing receiving early this year.
I am receiving His rejoicing over me with gladness.
I will receive His love that quiets my anxiety.
I will receive the song He sings over me and the sound of His voice.
Will you receive this with me? I don't want to do this alone. Knowing that I have a body of believers close by who are humbled by His love, stretched by His Word, and quieted in His presence too, helps the receiving be a little easier.
Be blessed this week and I am promising to really receive any blessings that come my way this week too.
