By Amy at Make Me a Mary
I remember a scene from “The Passion of Christ” where Jesus is laughing with Mary. Seeing Him laugh surprised me because until then I’d only thought about Jesus’s suffering.
Once I thought about it I realized that Jesus was human, so I’m sure He laughed plenty.
But I wonder, does God laugh, too?
I have a reader, who, when she writes to me says these deep, thought-provoking things that stay with me for days. Here’s a little snippet of her words from yesterday:
“I feel many surprises are coming in your life, and God longs to show you His love on an even deeper level because He loves you so. He thinks you’re a blast and you make Him laugh and bring Him joy in every way and that as much as you are seeking Him, He’s seeking you.”
I thought of my own kids, of the countless ways they make me laugh. I thought of how I love to surprise them and make them smile. I thought of how proud they make me and the joy they bring me every day.
And to think, God takes the same delight in me? Wow.
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. Zeph. 3:17 NIV
