Oh hey there, readers. Didn’t see you there. Welcome!
Thanks so much for stopping by on this lovely Friday. Pull up a chair. Grab your favorite Friday beverage. And maybe a snack.
It’s time for Five Minute Friday.
In short: Each Friday, I link up with Lisa-Jo , our favorite “Gypsy Mama.” She gives us a prompt. Then we write. Unscripted. Unedited. For Five. Minutes. Flat.
Ready? Let’s do this.
Today’s prompt: DANCE
5, 6, 7, 8… One and two, three and four… Kick, spin, pop, BOOM!
I love to dance. (On that note– I haven’t been dancing in a while– Husband, are you reading this? AHEM. ) Anywho, I digress.
I love to dance. Now, just because I say I love to dance doesn’t mean I’m good at it. I’m not the most coordinated person on the planet. I’ve taken a few sorta dance lessons. (A brief few week stint in college in ballroom dancing til my partner flaked on me, then my hubby and I took salsa lessons for our wedding.) I was a cheerleader about a hundred years ago, so had some experience with choreographed dances.
But now… I’m dancing with Jesus. Everyday. Some days are slow and sweet, other days my dance with Him is a little crazy. Sometimes it’s beautiful, sometimes it’s straight up hilarious.
He doesn’t care what I wear, what kind of shoes I have on, or what I feel like. He invites us to dance with Him.
Christ is the perfect dancing partner. He never steps on your toes. He never lets you down. And yes, He insists you let Him lead. (I am still working on that one. Sorry, God. I’m a slow learner.)
You don’t have to sit in that sad little row of chairs on the sideline, staring at the floor. Because Jesus as already asked that sweet question:
“My beloved… May I have this dance?”
All you have to do is take His hand… get up… AND DANCE.
Alas, that concludes another Friday finger sprint. What did you think? I’d love your feedback. Leave a comment below. (And yes, I reply to every comment.)
May your weekend be filled with smiles, sunshine, sugar and spice and everything nice… Oh, and some sweet Jesus dancing.
Crank up the tunes and let’s get groovin!
To the Glory of God Alone,
“Blessed are the people who know the passwords of praise, who shout on parade in the bright presence of God. Delighted, they dance all day long; they know who you are, what you do—they can’t keep it quiet!” ~Psalm 89 :15-16 (MSG)
