I had the privilege of participating in a fantastic surprise party for an incredible person.
It amazed me to know that one of the things i see as being most true about this person was the very thing about which she had been feeling insecure earlier in that same day.
And suddenly she was surrounded by a cloud of witnesses, testifying to the truth of how incredible she is, how beautiful, inspirational, delightful, gracious, and so much more, she is!
and it’s a simple thing…
but it struck me today that this is exactly what our Jesus loves to do for us! He loves to celebrate!
He loves to celebrate our lives… to tell us exactly how beautiful he sees us–to rejoice over us, to encourage us in our triumphs, to shout his joy over us.
