Here comes the BRIDEGROOM (rejoicing over you)...

The following blog, from a MyCCM'er, was published in this month's edition of CCM Magazine.

So I just wanted to share with you (the awesome reader who is reading this) what I read in my Bible today in my quiet time with God. I thought it was pretty cool…..but hold on a second, I’m just looking out the window and there is the most beautiful rainbow arching across the sky, oh! The sun is out and seriously, you know those types of rainbows that seem like the colors are all kinda blurring together? Well not this one, each color is like the bold stroke of a paint brush, well, almost.:) Wow! Okay so I was looking for certain verses in the Bible when I came upon this one, you probably have heard it before but here it is again:

“..As a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.” –Isaiah 62:5

I think that that is just so awesome! I’m sure most of you have been to a wedding before, but instead of turning around in your seats and looking at the bride as she comes through the doors, have you ever stayed looking straight ahead at the bridegroom’s face? I remember I did once and I remember seeing his face when he saw his bride, it literally lit up and there was so much joy and love on his face, but the cool thing is to think that that’s how God looks and feels about us, but not just “us” as a group, but each one of us individually as His own child. You, that’s how God looks and feels about you! And when you think that the bridegroom is going to burst from so much love and joy, it’s nothing compared to God’s love and joy for us. God loves and rejoices over us so much more! His love is so much more infinitely satisfying and He will never stop loving us! How awesome is that?! So the next time you’re at a wedding, along with having the opportunity to be apart of such a special occasion and covenant, think about Isaiah 62:5 when you see the bridegroom’s face and think about just how much God loves and rejoices over you!

Your sister in Christ,
