5 In Faith

Come And Dance

Last month my church held it’s first Creative Arts Conference.  I am fortunate to belong to a church that embraces freedom of expression.  Most of the art you see on this blog was done during Sunday morning worship services.  I attended the Creative Writing Seminar at the conference.  During the break out portion, the speaker put on some classical-type instrumental music.  We were asked to sit back, relax and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to us through the music.  When the music was finished, we were asked to fill an entire page with writing.  This is what I came up with:

He sees me there, in the distance.  Fear and darkness surround me.  What will I become if I give myself fully to Him?  I’ve only ever known darkness, but yet a great light surrounds Him.  It overtakes Him.  He beckons me to come, to join Him in the dance.  The light swirling around Him is inviting.  Colors I’ve never seen before.  They are drawing me.  The child inside of me screams to get out.  She wants to run straight into the light and into His arms.  There is no fear in her.  But only childlike faith.  Can I become as that child?  Will I let my guard down?  Will I allow myself to push through this darkness towards the place in the distance that draws me?  It is not so far away.  It is but a step.  It is but the willingness of my heart.  I will overcome this fear.  I will push through the darkness and join Him whose face I cannot see, but whose light captivates me.  I will step out in faith.  I will trust.  I will dance with the One who calls me by name.

What do you think?  During the time the music was playing, this entire writing was playing in front of me in the form of a vision.  I would love your thoughts.  Maybe I will write a book one day.
