In the past, this Scripture has been very important to me. Repeatedly reading it saw me through a very dark time.

The Lord your God is in your midst,
    a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
    he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.

                                                   Zephaniah 3:17

The part I most liked was God’s quieting me with His love. Sounds to me like a father consoling His weeping child. And like a gentle father He’s there for us. All the time.

Oh, but God is good, isn’t He?
