The Lord your God in your midst, The mighty one will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you with his love. He will rejoice over you with singing. -Zephaniah 3:17

The anticipation was exhilarating. "Where might we be going? What has he planned? Am I pretty?...He thinks I'm pretty...I know I am pretty...He chose me."

Thoughts bubbled through my mind. Blindfolded I sat, left turn, right turn, acceleration. "Where might we be going? What has he planned?" A surprise date he told me, picking out my clothes and blindfolding me as he led me to the car. "Where might we be going?" I was giddy with excitement. I trusted him. He is my beloved; he longs to love me and to treat me as the princess I am. The feeling of being pursued transcended the lies I had been battling earlier that day. I was chosen, and the evening he planned was yet ours to experience. The adventure exhilarated me.

The freshness this date provided awakened me with emotion. "Where might we be going? What has he planned?" He leads me, he dances with me, he dispels the lies the enemy of my soul has voiced. I am chosen, I am a princess, I am delighted in. My husband, my earthly example of the Love from my Savior. His love quiets me. Blindfolded I sit, ready for the adventure. Trusting in the one leading the way. Wherever we are going, we go together. My heart leaps with delight.
