Dance in the Rain

What I really wanted

Is to dance in the rain

Holding nothing back

Everything to gain

 

But that’s not what happened

As the downpours came

In the midst of the storms

I just crumbled again

 

As I cried out to You

My tears fell like the rain

I stumbled and fell

My heart full of shame

 

But You never leave me there

Crumpled on the floor

 

No, You never leave me there

 

You pick me up

And say you’re OK

You say “Trust Me now,

I’ll never leave you

And I’m right here, 

Child, I’m right here

 

Be still My Child

It’ll be alright

Cause I’ve got you now 

And I’ll hold you tight

 

Give it all to Me

I want everything

I paid the price

To set you free

Let go of the shame

And give Me your pain

I’ll work it out

It’ll be all right

Just wait and see

And leave it to Me

 

Dust yourself off now

And remember you are Mine

You’re never alone

Remember you are Mine

 

Dance like you want to

Praise, come what may 

You’re getting stronger 

You can dance….. 

Dance in the rain.”

Walking It Out – Part 3: Glitches and Backward Steps

In this whirlwind journey, which in the big picture has been nothing but something to celebrate, there are just moments that are harder than others. Multiple times, especially in the last several weeks, those harder moments and days (sometime hours.. sometimes daaayyyyysss) end up leading to life giving encounters as the One who loves us most steps in and shows His hands and things He’s been up to on our behalf. 

Once in a while, it seems, we just hit a few glitches, and maybe even get hung up on them. But as often as those times seem to come along, and it appears as if we’ve taken 2 steps forward and one big one back, it’s good to look and see, that we are still in forward motion. God is still God and God is still Good. Even when all we seem to be able to accomplish is crying, or feeling angry. This too shall pass… this too shall pass. And in the not too distant future, joy will reign supreme, the sky will be bright blue, and all will be ‘well with the world again’ and we’ll be the conquerors of the mountain yet one more time. 

So if today is one of ‘those’ days, where you’d really rather just sit down and quit…  don’t. This is but a blip on the radar of time… 🙂
