God Sings for You

One of my favorite Bible verses is Zephaniah 3:17: “The Lord your God in your midst, 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.”  From college on, whenever I have nightmares or feel afraid, this is the verse I have turned to for comfort.  I try to imagine what song he might be singing over me or what his voice must sound like.  While I’m sure that “normal” people imagine a voice like Michael Buble or Sarah Brightman, I always hear my dad’s voice when I close my eyes, and it’s the most beautiful sound I can imagine.  My dad doesn’t have the best singing voice, so if you’ve heard him sing, you may wonder at my imagination; his motto has always been, “You can make up for quality with quantity.”  But my dad sings with all his heart, and that’s how I imagine God must sing, too.
