On His Toes

I see His feet.
I hear the sweet music captivating me.
I long to dance with my King.

In shame, I hang my head.
I'm afraid I don't know how.
The steps, the rhythm, letting Him lead, only blurs of hope.

In majestic gentleness, He lifts my chin.
I cannot focus on His face, not yet,
His words change my life.

'Stand on my feet, my daughter, and we will dance.
I will teach you the steps as you learn to trust me.'

Holding me close, I step on nail scarred feet.
The dance begins.
With each step, more freedom, lavish love, surrendered trust.

My life's dance, standing on my King's feet.
Today, I am learning the rhythm and the song He sings over my life.
As I stand on His feet.

It doesn't matter where we are, the steps we may have forgotten or never knew.
The dance can begin today. For you sweet friends, for me. Do you have a relationship with your Creator, the intimacy, where you can hear the song of heaven? He is waiting to dance with all of us. Step by step, He is teaching me. To trust. To let Him lead. To hear the heartbeat of heaven and dance along.

Sarah Dawn,

There have been so many times that I have moved ahead of my Savior. I am learning to let Him lead and to wait on His way and His timing, which always exceeds all of my plans and expectations. He is good!

Blessings,
Sarah

Hello Sarah Dawn,
So nice to meet you, thank you for visiting and leaving me such kinds words of encouragement. The main reason I started blogging was to meet fellow Christian women who love God and wanted to serve Him by serving others.
After visiting your blog today I find that you seem to have that love, and I am truly blessed and inspired.
The post you have written today is absolutely beautiful and touching, I too love dancing with my Lord.
I would like to add your blog to my list, not only me being blessed but that others will also.
Blessings,
Sue
