Then young women will dance and be glad,
young men and old as well.
I will turn their mourning into gladness;
I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Do you just want to dance before the Lord? The shackles are broken, the weight lifted, the burden gone and you sail on a cloud of sheer wonder. “…..whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.” (Psalm 1:2-3) Total refreshment. Outstanding peace. Joy beyond measure.
It is just before 2 in the morning and so it goes without saying (but I will say it anyway) I cannot sleep. For the past couple of hours I have been having an on again, off again, conversation with God. We have been rehashing lots of stuff. I have been trying to listen more than talk. I have been reminded of the freedom found only in our Lord. And I said out loud in my room, “Okay God, I am finally ready to learn the lesson You have been wanting to teach me. I AM ready. Let’s get to it and see what You have in store.” And I just want to dance in the arms of Jesus. I want to swirl and swirl in happiness. Sometimes it is only in movement that we can find our expression.
On this date, at this time, the one desire of my heart is to dance with Jesus. Amen and Amen!
