The Weekend Brew: We Dance

Wedance2

All too often a song comes along that moves me to tears.  This one has been on repeat for a long time.  Not only is it anointed, but every time I listen to it I get this picture of me, being held in the Father’s arms. I’m a little girl, and He is big and strong, and He twirls me around and around.  As long as I remain there, safe in His arms, I know everything will be okay.

In times of uncertainty, it brings me much peace knowing that my steady, constant God has a good plan for my life.

I pray you will set back and allow this song to minister to your heart today.

Will you take His hand and allow Him to lead you in this dance of life?

Finally ready now,
to close my eyes and just believe
that you won’t lead me where you don’t go.
When my faith gets tired and my hope seems lost
You spin me round and round and remind me of that song,
the one You wrote for me….
and we dance. – (We Dance, Steffany Frizzell Gretzinger)

    Barbie – Oh what a beautiful song! I ad never heard it until this morning. “And I will lock eyes with the One who’s chosen me.” I am joining the dance with you, my friend. I am so grateful that although we each may not yet see the plan, He has a plan. “But as for me (us), I will always have hope, I will praise you more and more.” (Ps. 71:14,NIV). Blessings, friend!

    He gives us that Father-Daughter dance -doesn’t He – and He leads us just right if we want Him, too. Thank you for ministering to my heart-bruises today through your own challenge! Wishing you blessing, refreshing as you take the Father’s hand in your week!

    Music is one of His greatest gifts to us, don’t you think ? and He loves it when we use it to worship Him. I love how you see yourself, Barbie. I have a similar picture, in my mind’s eye and hope some day to be able to translate it to canvas. I’ve seen something in your writing these past couple of weeks that wasn’t there before. God is giving you what you need to walk this path. Have faith. Blessings and prayers, dear one.

    I’m so sorry you’re going through this season, Barbie. I can relate to uncertainty in this area of life. My husband and I just walked through it this time last year. Dark days. But also days in which I was so thankful for the light of life guiding us slowly but surely. I appreciate your continued perseverance!

    Isn’t it amazing how easily we forget how faithful He is. I love that he is always ready long before we are because it demonstrates not only his ever continual faithfulness but his faith in us as we finally come.. ready to close our eyes, lean back and let Him lead and sway in the rhythm He has created so long ago and has been singing over our hearts from the beginning.
    Your words lifted me up. Thank you for the reminder to listen to the song.
    Blessings,
    Dawn

    I love Steffany Frizzel Gretzinger! I discovered her from listening to Bethel Church music, and I hadn’t realized that she had an album out. I need to get this album. Wonderful song. I got such a beautiful visual when I listened to it. Thank you for sharing and, as always, for hosting Weekend Brew
