Dancing With Daddy!

Just because I don’t follow the dance steps of others doesn’t mean I’m not dancing!

My Abba is my dance partner. Grateful my heavenly father has filled my “dance card”. Extremely in awe that after following others most of my life as a believer I have learned that I dance for an audience of one!

It doesn’t matter that others don’t see value in my dance. It is my dance, not theirs.

Our Daddy-God leads us all in unique steps and at different rhythms. I have learned the hard way that when I try to follow the footsteps of someone else’s dance; I trip and fall. So, I am learning to hear the song Abba wrote for me and to be led by My Father and not pushed by others.

He is so good at leading me across this vast dance floor called life. He is so patient with me. You see, I am not a good dancer. There are days when I struggle to keep in step with Him. Some days I step all over His toes! On other days I am just stubborn! I want to do the leading which never ends well.

My Daddy is gentle and kind; even when I am struggling to learn the steps.

Learning to dance in cadence with Him is not easy; especially when I am looking down at my feet.   New dance steps can be hard to learn but when I commit to practice and follow His lead; well….it’s just beautiful!  The secret is keeping my eyes on Him at all times.  Trusting He knows how to lead me.

When I slip or fall, he doesn’t get aggravated or angry with me. Instead, he holds out his hand and graciously helps me back up on my feet. While, also mercifully teaching me to alter the attitude of my heart. I move from stubborn to surrendered and I begin to actually enjoy the dance.

But my favorite part of dancing with my Daddy-God is when I am actually not dancing at all!   He lets me stand on His big, strong feet and glides me around the dance floor!  It is like being a little girl all over again.  All I have to do is wrap my arms around His neck  & simply trust that He knows each step, dip, turn and sway!  I am safe and secure in His arms.

I am so incredibly grateful that my heavenly father invites me to dance with Him.  It is every girl’s desire to dance with her Daddy on her special day!


About Shadow Living Blog

I am a writer in the making. My inspiration comes my relationship with Jesus and the healing He is doing in my heart. Other material comes from living life in my roles as wife, mom, daughter, friend and grandmother. Writing has always been my passion. It's like therapy to my soul. I believe everyone has a story to tell and can be part of The Greatest Story Ever Told, God's Story. My desire is to be obedient to God's call on my life by using this gift of writing for His glory. My hope is that through this blog I can encourage and inspire others to follow their God-given Dream and step out from a life lived in "the shadows"(whatever or whoever that is to you) and instead begin to live out the abundant life in the Shadow of The Almighty.
