I can’t wait to share this story with you friends…. Totally true and in sequences. It all started two years ago. I had a dream of God and I dancing in a room. This particular room was full of people but somehow the Lord and I were able to do a slow waltz. I remember being quite impressed with us doing this and being able to waltz from one side of the room to the other, without missing a beat!
Now fast forward six months or so later, I have another dream. This time I am dancing with the Lord, but we have new moves and He gives me a twirl. The room still had a few people, but definitely less crowded than before. Our rhythm was faster as I remembered and we had a good groove going.
At this point, three months have passed and now I have a dream of the Lord and I dancing in the same room as before but I didn’t notice any people there. The Lord and I dancing and we were fast! He dipped me, was spinning me around left and right, and we were having the best time. Didn’t care about the people, the floor was for only us.
Then fast forward another two months but this was a vision, not a dream. As I was sitting somewhere in deep thought, I was envisioning the Lord and I dancing again, but this time it was like figure skaters. He would guide me on a certain dance move, and then let me go, but was always near me. At times, He would mimic what I was doing and other times He would show me the move first and then I would follow. It was as if I was given freedom to be…. freedom to move…. freedom to be creative with my King!
Jeremiah 31:12-13 says, “They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will rejoice in the bounty of the LORD— the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, the young of the flocks and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden, and they will sorrow no more. 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.” Psalm 30:11-12 says, “You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. LORD my God, I will praise you forever.” And 1Corinthians 3:9 says, “For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.“
I believe the last dance described here is the one He wants us all to be in. A dance that doesn’t have His hand guiding us on all our moves, but a dance of trust. A dance where He has guided us before, but now we know how to lead and follow with Him. We are partners with the Lord. We are dance partners in this life to be a dynamic duo, making God known in all moves, in all situations and circumstances. Yes, we will mess up at times and we might get out of step, but as I see figure skaters, the lead always guides his partner right where they need to be, same sequence, same rhythm.
Let that be us! May we stay in rhythm with Him and be the dynamic duo as we dance in our designated choreographed routines.
