blessing upon blessing

I cannot even fathom why God has chosen to bless me the way He has.  None of my words suffice, so I will just use His.

Isaiah 62:1-5
1For 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.
2 The nations shall see your righteousness,
   and all the kings your glory,
and you shall be called by a new name
   that the mouth of the LORD will give.
3You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD,
   and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
4You shall no more be termed Forsaken,
   and your land shall no more be termed Desolate,
but you shall be called My Delight Is in Her,
   and your land Married;
for the LORD delights in you,
   and your land shall be married.
5For as a young man marries a young woman,
   so shall your sons marry you,
and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
   so shall your God rejoice over you.

Joel 2:23-27
23“Be glad, O children of Zion,
   and rejoice in the LORD your God,
for he has given the early rain for your vindication;
   he has poured down for you abundant rain,
   the early and the latter rain, as before.

24“The threshing floors shall be full of grain;
   the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25I will restore to you the years
   that the swarming locust has eaten,
the hopper, the destroyer, and the cutter,
   my great army, which I sent among you.

26“You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied,
   and praise the name of the LORD your God,
   who has dealt wondrously with you.
And my people shall never again be put to shame.
27You shall know that I am in the midst of Israel,
   and that I am the LORD your God and there is none else.
And my people shall never again be put to shame.

John 1:14, 16
14And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
16And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.

For your listening pleasure.
