The Hebrew word translated as "Rejoice" in English in Zephaniah 3:17 literally means " spin around due to the influence of a strong emotion." This is like when you first fall in love and you can not contain your emotion and you just have to dance.

This is such an interesting concept for me as I feel that way every time my darling wife comes home from work. I rejoice at the love that just walked through the door and lit up our home.

I wonder if God loves us so much that He can't be still? Is that why he sent Jesus to demonstrate God's love to the world? Is there a party in heaven when a sinner turns to God? That is what Jesus said.

Perhaps we can show our excitement for the love of God in our lives by loving others and giving a smile, a kind word, a worm hug, a helping hand or even a twirl or two. Rejoice for the Lord of the Dance loves us.
