A Moving Prayer

Last night I watched a transformation take place with a group of girls, teens and tweens, each a different age, from gawky and silly kids running around to graceful, regal queens upon the stage.

They were awkward at first, going over the steps, it seemed they'd never get it right, but by the end of the hour when the music played, oh, what a marvelous sight.

They stepped with grace upon the stage, like reeds blowing gently in an unseen breeze, and their arms rose and fell to accent each move, the music pulling them along as it pleased.

It was a dance in slow motions, the words given life, the music weaving around each dancer there, and it all came together, the sum much more than the parts, it was more than a song and dance, it was a moving prayer.

It reminded me so of how I used to be, awkward and alone on the stage of my life, all the steps I took were wrong, the music was just noise, instead of peace and grace, all I had was more strife.

I tried so hard to do it on my own, until I saw that I would never get it right, and realized what I really needed was a Master of the dance to set my life alight.

The very thought was enough for Jesus to be right there, willing to teach me if I would only dare, and when I said 'yes' to Him, He began the transformation, I was a new creature in Him, created with such love and care.

He taught me a new dance, one full of hope, peace, and joy only He could give, and gently showed me that now I was His, and I had a brand new way to live.

I slowly learned the new steps, dancing out of darkness into the light, and there I found His forgiveness and grace, and my heart, full of joy, took flight.

Even this was not enough blessings to give, for God took my dreams and made them come true, for though I could dance alone, my dream was a dance meant for two.

God brought us together, a meeting He ordained from above, for He knew that we should be together, and share a brand new love.

Now the music plays every day as I wake, and my joy knows no bounds for I know it is true, that in all the hours to come, happiness will be mine, for I will share this dance of love with you.

Beautiful anointed writing,Trish! "He taught me a new dance, one full of hope, peace, and joy only He could give, and gently showed me that now I was His, and I had a brand new way to live. I slowly learned the new steps, dancing out of darkness into the light, and there I found His forgiveness and grace, and my heart, full of joy, took flight. Even this was not enough blessings to give, for God took my dreams and made them come true, for though I could dance alone, my dream was a dance meant for two.Beautiful words!!!
