The Most Beautiful Love

A passage I absolutely love, because nothing else in life compares to God's overwhelmingly faithful, tender love.
I may disappoint people; they may disappoint me. But even when I disappoint this Lover, He never gives up on me and - what I still can't wrap my head around - still is actually delighted and rejoicing to have me near Him and calls me His royal jewel, His beautiful bride.

"For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet,
until her righteousness goes forth as brightness,
and her salvation as a burning torch.

"You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD,
and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
You shall be called My Delight Is in Her,
for the LORD delights in you.

As the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
so shall your God rejoice over you."

~From Isaiah 62:1,3-5 (ESV)
