Alive and Dancing!


Times of fear sweeping the nation and hearts of man failing them for fear. Freedom slipping from our fingers, sickness ravaging bodies of those we know and some that we so love. Families loosing everything, despair and grief and fear.. Not knowing of what lies tomorrow... We live, we go about our days.

We pray.

If like me you wonder sometimes is my heart seated and established with the Father? Spirit man loaded down with concerns of the world, life and the darkness that wants compass us. Hearing and listening hard for HIS tender whisper. Looking for signs which HE warns us against. It is in the heart of us buried deep within the man that has been brought alive with the VERY spirit that raised Christ Jesus from the dead.................

That is where HE lives.

The very spirit of my man has been brought ALIVE. Born again, not of corruptible but with the incorruptible. ALIVE in Christ Jesus. Seated in heavenly placed with HIM. Never to die, alive for eternity. Journey through this dark and dusty land, not citizens, just passing through.
God of heaven comes down!

Alive and dancing this morning as I feed my spirit man and give him words and music that causes him to rise above the shouts of the one that would load us down with fear, dancing so that my spirit man can be loosed to praise and worship the one that so loves us.


God, HE lives in the praises. God, HE lives in the dance! God HE lives and because HE lives we will live also! Promises coming to the surface while I dance, while I live........ Promises of peace and love and promises of HIM being with me always. Joy that overcomes the fear and the darkness that wants to steal our peace.

HE is God...

HE is Alpha and Omega.

HE has always been and there is non before HIM.


HE is the last word in this world and HE will have no end. HE is God and HE is all present and all powerful.

Who will we fear?

HE is God that loved us so much HE sent HIS ONLY begotten son just so that HE could give us a hug and walk in the cool of the evening once again. HE is God that created all but sacrificed HIS son to return us to the garden from whence we started.

HE is God, and when I begin to dance my spirit man moves within me and hears the food for his soul and he rejoices and when my spirit begins to worship, I begin to dance.

I am alive in Christ and I dance.

HE is God.

DANCE!



(did you know that I own a red tambourine?)

I didn't know you owned a red tambourine and yet it doesn't surprise me that you do either. :) You have such a "sweet" heart my friend.

I read several posts last night with the theme of dancing...

I love the song "Come to Jesus" and the verse that says
"
O, and when the love spills over
And music fills the night
And when you can't contain your joy inside, then
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus and live"


Amen!

Dancing and laughing in the face of adversity...isn't that what we are supposed to do? The alternative is pretty bad to contemplate!
Hugs

Denise,

Dancing in the Spirit. There used to be a woman that went to Grandma's church that danced in the Spirit at church.

I give thanks this day for the little things that God created that make life worth living. Flowers, grandsons, dogs, birds, trees...I could go on and on. We are abundantly blessed.

Hugs,
Mary

I've had a hard time putting my dancing shoes on as of late. You're right--the world has pushed my mind into a corner, refusing the symphony of the Divine. It's time to take my place back on the dance floor and join in the steps with my King!

Thanks for the reminder.

peace~elaine

Joni said...

Beautiful! I love that we can dance for Him and lift our voices in praise...and the red tambourine brings a smile to my face - why am I not surprised!

Hugs to you ~

Joyce said...

Did you write that?? Or is it a song?
I love to dance in church but it was more "back in the day" our mega church we are at doesn't really do it. Blah! We sort of "jump" in place there.....but mainly I guess because it's so CROWDED so you can't do much more than that.

A "red" tambourine huh? That is lovely and VERY coooooool......beat that thing my friend.
Have fun too..
Be blessed,
Joyce

Joyce said...

Amen and Amen. I love the idea of dance and song. That is why I love Pslams 148, 149, and 150. I am glad you have a red tambourine.

Love and Hugs,

Angie said...

The red tambourine...I don't doubt it for one minute!

At my home church, you'd probably be leading the Jericho march!
(I don't think they know about Jericho marches in the church I attend now :) and I'd be right behind you clapping and singing! We have had some AWESOME times in the past---in our church services and I am PRAYING and believing for a revival of our hearts and souls again!

Miss you dear sister! Love you!
