May I Have This Dance?
The last couple of weeks have been so busy for me and as a result, I have not been writing as much. I have so much to share but much of it will be shared over time and in different posts. I can say there is officially a book in the works but those details are a long way off. I will be working on that in much of my time off. If you want to know more about it you are welcome to ask but I may not share much at this point in the process. But it is a beautiful part of the journey the Lord has me on! This is in a way a follow-up post to my last one Better Me Year 33 but you don't have to read that post to understand this one. Now back to your regularly scheduled blog post.
So around Valentine's day the Lord asked me a simple question: "May I have this Dance?" I will say I knew at the time He was not asking me for an actual dance in worship or anything like that. He was asking me to step back from the lead role in my life and for me to allow Him to take that role. He was asking to be my dance partner in this dance that is my life! This was not a small request to take a spin around the floor this was a complete submission to His guidance in every area of my life. It was not a question to be considered lightly! I did not consider it lightly either. It took me time to answer Him but about a week after Valentines, I did answer him completely. I not only accepted but for probably the first time in my life I decided actually allow Him to lead. Before Valentines, I can say I would accept His request to dance but then proceed to try and lead the dance in my own power. Since then I have found that for the first time in my life I truly understand the verse that says: "A man’s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps." (Proverbs 16:9 NKJV) So I accepted the request for Him to be my partner in this dance of my life. So now He is the one who guides me through the steps when the time is right! My favorite part is that the more I dance with Him the more I have begun to feel His timing and the easier it has become to follow His steps. It has been a beautiful experience and I honestly never want it to stop! I am so incredibly happy and thankful for this timing! He is truly so much better at everything then we can ever hope to be! I am thankful to truly begin understanding submission to Him in the way that He has shown me recently. My devotion is so incredibly tied to Him! So today I will say this to all of you When the Lord asks you this question consider His request carefully then I urge you to accept and follow the Lord's lead. He is so good to us and knows exactly what we need. He also knows where we are going and what we need to learn and where we need the most strength to face the next season. His leading me has brought me to a beautiful place. I am so thankful to find myself in His strong arms being gently guided through each step of my life. It has brought me a level of peace and contentment I never thought possible! I am so incredibly happy! I just wanted to share this little picture into what the Lord is doing in my life right now.
