And then we danced some more...

Yesterday night was the first real session of When Wallflower's Dance the bible study. Whew....God is just showing up all over the place in this beautiful group of's probably the most precious group I have ever come to know!

I have to be honest, I was a little nervous.....being in a new room, with a microphone (yikes), a bigger setting and less time to speak (since the video was longer tonight).....I was nervous.

I had so much to say and only so much time to put it all together!

But the Lord was good, and He took over. I was overcome with His sweet presence as I could see on many faces they were too.

It seems as though woman, after woman, after woman is breaking out a new dance in her life! But with new steps and new moves come some new lessons......and that my friends, is not always easy!

I myself feel as though in the most inner places of my soul that a new dance is starting to happen. I'm excited, I'm nervous and but more than anything I just want every step I take to be about Him. Jesus.

You see, for so long I have not thought of my Lord as this tender being who wants to wrap me up every single day. But I can also say that when you are wrapped up in His arms, His voice is very clear.......and sometimes He is saying "No" or "Not yet" or even "I don't think so girl." And those words do not always lead to warm fuzzy's.

But I was reminded last night that my salvation is my inheritance and it's something I am going to be continually working salvation that is.

So as I begin another busy day.....I just had to pause for a moment and reflect on God's goodness. Because my dear friends, He is Good. All the time.

But this world we live in........not so much. But living out the dance, being wrapped up in His arms and sharing God's sweetness with one person at a time, perhaps you and I can begin to spread His love all around. Like never before.

Like never before.

How will you today show God's sweet love to someone today? I know my journey begins right now with a certain three year old girly who just cannot understand why Curious George is not on RIGHT NOW. Lord. Have. Mercy........=)

I love you my friends, have a blessed day!!

"I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance....." -Ephesians 1:18
