Rejoicing in the Dance...

Then shall the young women rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old shall be merry. I will turn their mourning into joy; I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow.  - Jeremiah 31:13

Two years ago, when I began the Mourning into Dancing Blog, I wrote a post that was entitled, "Dancing in the Dark." And I spoke of learning to dance with God, as a small child would learn to dance on the feet of her daddy.

There is a time that comes to the Christian's life when she finds herself deep into the dance with her Heavenly Daddy... a finding of peace as she deepens her relationship with God.

He extends His hand to us... and then offers the invitation... and thus, the dance begins.

This is a love relationship at its best... God has given Himself to us... and then we respond by loving in return... and desiring to know Him more and more. We learn to not only read His word, but to apply it to our lives on a daily basis. In short, He becomes our universe! He is all we desire... and in that desiring, we seek to know His every heartbeat... We hang on His every word...

And the longer we dance, the more we pay attention to every detail of every thought, every whisper, every action, anticipating nearly every move He makes... And our rhythm begins to match His... and step by step, we finally become One.

And in Him, we rejoice! Because He has offered the invitation... It is He who takes us by the hand and twirls us about the room! It is He who teaches us in the way we should go. (Isaiah 48:17)

Rejoice, my friend! The music is playing... and Your Heavenly Daddy wants to dance with you!
