Day 3 – 14 Day Love Challenge

     I’ll let you in on a little secret. At least once a day, I embrace my wife and sing to her the refrain of an old Johnny Cash song:
  You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,
  You make me happy when skies are gray.

  You’ll never know, dear, how much I love you.
  Please don’t take my sunshine away.
     These words come to my mind as I read the following verse from Zephaniah:
“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you…but will rejoice over you with singing” (3:17, NIV).
     What a powerful thought! God’s delight in you compels him to sing in your ear. Take a few moments to
accompany God by humming or singing the words, “You Are My Sunshine.” Imagine God holding and
singing the refrain to you.
     Now, reflect on the following passage:
“I give you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you,
so you also must love each other” (John 13:34, CEB).
     Ask God to reveal to you the name of someone who is in need of feeling loved. As that person comes to your mind, consider one tangible way you can reflect God’s love by taking delight in him or her today.
