…a Time to Dance…


A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; (‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3‬:‭4‬ KJV)
It is certainly true that I am now into a different season. Anyone who ever witnessed me trying to dance (in my younger life) would attest that it certainly was not a time for that! I had the weeping, laughing and mourning down pat. I especially had the laughing part perfected. But dancing? There never seemed enough time for that.
Although there were different types of dancing, I did not participate in any. I was far too awkward for social dancing. Modern dance? I just didn’t get it. There were forms of dance that I could not even find a name for much less participate. It was not “time” for that.
But the new season that I am in allows for yet another type of dancing…the expressions from deep inside of me that bring me to profound rejoicing! This is not a celebration of legs only, or any other body parts exclusively or specifically. It is rather a body and soul celebration that surpasses all bodily dance in joyous participation. It is a party of soul and God’s presence that brings about true joy, real Godly presence, and spiritual renewal.
The season has passed for my physical dance manifestations, such as they were. However, in this time of God’s “seasons” it is as if my Saviour has spoken to me in a personal way…”Daryl, it is time. Would you like to dance?”

Why I Pray…


Daryl Face shot 3Philippians 4:6-9 NKJV

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are  noble, whatever things are  just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are  lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there  is any virtue and if there  is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

I want to be free from anxiety.  I must learn to trust God for all my needs.  I pray for daily concerns, of course, but I also pray for others.  I want to be able to use God’s resources to help bear their burden.

I John 5:14-15 NKJV

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

I want to have that confidence, all the time.  I am praying for some difficult needs for others at this time.  I know God hears me, so I know His benevolent will is going to be done!

My prayer for you today is that you will trust God more, pray more, expect more, and be confidently thankful!  Now, go…pray with confidence!
