Father’s Joy


I have seen the joy in a father’s eye as he welcomes his child into his arms after having been deployed for months.  I have watched the smiles, observed the tears of gladness and compassion, and witnessed the joy of a father whose child is now safe again in his care.  These happy moments of reunion remind me of the passage from 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.”  How wonderfully happy our heavenly Father must be when His children come to Him, returning from our waywardness and coming back to live in His care and safekeeping.  He has loved us with an everlasting love.  He has given His Only Begotten Son that we might have life.  Surely, we are our Father’s Joy!  Amen.
