I know it’s crazy.. but this is what God and I do together alot. We laugh together. Yes I laugh with God and i am quite certain He laughs with me. I think people are taken aback sometimes when I pray. See I know we need to approach God with reverence.. believe me.. I in all awe and worship realize what a powerful amazing lifegiving lifechanging truth it is that WE CAN TALK TO THE GOD who made the universe with WORDS! and He chooses to talk back to us.. whew.. glory! that’s almost more then I can take.
But I believe God has an awesome sense of humor to. I think He loves for me to talk with Him as a best friend. And He is.. HE’s my best friend, the lover of my soul, my husband, my Heavenly Daddy (although I have a stinking amazing earthly Daddy) but I believe God must have a sense of humor. Think about some of the animals He made. (don’t start thinking of some of the people He made now!) I mean.. an elephant.. a wrinkled old elephant. How can you think about that and not laugh.
Zephaniah 3:17 says God rejoices over us with singing. I love that. He is singing over you and I right now. Rejoicing over us. So many people have the view of the angry God in the sky waiting to slam down His big stick. Somehow that and God rejoicing over us with singing don’t go together.
Psalms 18 says God rescued us because He delights in us.
We have a delightful singing God– and I just like to laugh with Him.
Lately sooo many crazy exciting things have been going on in my life, in ministry.. daily it’s been a fun journey to see what God is up to next. Some days I just have to laugh. Lord is this really happening. Did I really win that scholarship to go to Michigan to Speak up Conference. Did you really just let me .. little ol’ me who has no idea what I am doing propose my book Dateless not Dead to agents, publishers– to sit down and meet with a New York Times Best selling author who has written hundreds of books, have him go over my manuscript? Lord do I really have a board of directors for the ministry that I have had on my heart for years? Lord do I really have bi-laws written for that ministry. Lord are you sure you are calling this unorganized girl without an ounce of administration skills to lead a ministry. And the Lord and I laugh together and He says YES!
I think HE laughs with me because He is delighting in seeing His daughter Live alive, and come alive. I think He delights in that in you to. I know this is not in the Bible, but I think there are a special choir of angels around His throne that praise Him as we laugh. He does talk throughout the Bible how He turns our mourning into dancing– how bout our laughter into praise?
Hey the proverbs 31 woman laughed. Proverbs 31:25 says She laughs at the times to come.
So why don’t you and I giggle with God today. I bet no matter what you are going through you– you start giggling and then it will turn to laughter and you will come alive!
