will you dance with me?

When was the last time you asked the Lord, “Will you dance with me?” 

Having a relationship with God is supposed to be a very intimate relationship.  He desires for us to love him and him alone.  In the Old Testament we read about David and his love for God.  It was a very passionate love.  David was a man after God’s own heart.

David writes in Psalms 40:4-5, “Blessed are you who give yourselves over to God, turn your backs on the world’s “sure thing,” ignore what the world worships; the world’s a huge stockpile of God-wonders and God-thoughts.  Nothing and no one comes close to you!  I start talking about you, telling what I know, and quickly run out of words.  Neither numbers nor words account for you.” The Message.

I love the lyrics to the song, “You Split the Earth” by Martin Smith of Delirious?.  This is only the last half of the song:

You scorched the earth with fire in Your eyes  One look could burn my soul  You let the fields dance with the wind  Will you dance with me?  And I long to be one with You  And I long to be one with You  Will You dance with me?  I’m yours and yours alone  Whenever You call I will be there for You  Whatever You say I will do anything  You came as a thief You’ve stolen my fear  You’ve captured my heart again  You ask me to run so I run with You  I’ll do anything You want me to  How I long to be one with You  I love to be friends with You

Jacqueline is my dancer.  She spends so much time every week practicing with her company.  When it’s performance time it is a beautiful thing to see.  To see her movements so beautifully carried out along with her company… flowing in unison. I take a lot of credit for my daughter’s ability to dance.  Truth be told I haven’t a rhythmic step in my body… but don’t tell her – she thinks she got it from me!  Moving through life in sync with God is much like a dance. 

Lord, will you dance with me?
