|My old ballet shoes.|
I find particular beauty in ballroom dancing, especially the waltzes. The gentleman takes the lady by the hand and leads her around the room in mirrored movement. It is lovely to behold them gaze into the other’s eyes and focus solely upon their partner and the dance they share.
In the darkest times of my life God has lifted me by the hand, and looked me in the eye, and walked me to a place of peace and comfort – that passes all understanding. It is a waltz of sorts - Him leading me by the hand, me following with focus solely on Him. When I find myself in His arms, His peace overshadows all that is going on around me. Maybe you too have had life experiences that left you nowhere to go but on your knees to His arms. It is a wonderful place to be.

You will need a hanky or two, but will also rejoice in the lovely picture she details. It is an easy read, suitable for sharing with someone who needs to know they are not alone, someone who needs to hear there is hope in Christ - even when the hopeless shuffle seems to be the only dance they know. If you are willing to take His hand – He will lead you to that place of peace. #DanceWithJesusBook
Father, how thankful I am for the times You have shown me what I could not find on my own. How thankful I am that You know my pain and hold me when I can not hold myself. How thankful I am that You give us grace to waltz through the pain into hope, never alone, but with You.
If you need a little hope, or if you have hope to share, you are welcome to leave a note here.
