Look at me Daddy

Joel 2:25
I will restore to you the years 
   that the swarming locust has eaten, 
the hopper, the destroyer, and the cutter, 
   my great army, which I sent among you.

This promise has been spoken over me 5 times in the last year.. I hid it in my heart and wondered what was God promising... could it be finances? A car.. or 2? (we've had 2 cars stolen from us in the last 5 years) abundance in finances.... yes it is all of those, but this weekend He has shown me something that I have been longing for my whole life... It's my Daddy... It's Him, my Heavenly Father who loves me more than any earthly Father ever could.

My earthly dad was taken from me when I was just a little girl. I longed for a Dad I could call my own. I didn't know how to relate to God my heavenly Father, it had been too long..

This weekend, He showered His love on me, in ways that are indescribable! I have become like hot wax in His Presence. His presence is all around me. He loves me. He loves you.

As I danced and worshiped in His presence, this song came bubbling out of me... think of a little girl singing this, with mud stains on her dress, hair tied up and falling out of her pony tails... can't wait to show her Daddy something she just did.... (spelling errors intentional ;)

Look at me Daddy
      Look what You did,
You made me beeeutiful!

Look at me Daddy
      Look what You did,
You washed me clean
and took my sins away!

Look at me Daddy
      Look what You did
You made me purfect
So I can run into Your arms!

Look at me Daddy,
      Look what You did
You filled me with Jesus!

I am beeeutiful,
      I am cleen!
I am made perfect!
       I am full of Jesus!
I am ONE with YOU!!
