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?
