As I held my Bible, it fell open to two pictures of our little boys. I have the pictures tucked away in my Bible, often moving them from "here to there" in no particular spot. I stared at their sweet faces for several moments and thought, "God, would there be any reason why their pictures were in this very spot in the Bible? If there is, will you please show me." The pictures were among the pages of Zephaniah 3. As my eyes fell to the column by the boys' pictures, this is what I read,
"The LORD your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing."
I picked the pictures up and prayed the promises of this verse over our boys. It was not by chance that this is where their pictures were tucked away. I am glad that I listened to the quiet voice that said, "Stop. Be still. You haven't had quality time with me today." Thank you, God, for allowing us to find you when we stop to seek your face.
