Delighting in my God, I desire to dwell in His pleasure and to help others experience true delight.

"Delight Yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
And He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your judgment as the noonday.  
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him;..." Ps 37:4-7a

The Master's Lead




I don’t know how to dance.  I can’t dance with you.  I stop and pray.  I will dance with my Lord.  I submit to His lead.  It is jerky at first, but His gentle pressure guides me.  I submit to His lead.  I am awkward and I don’t do well.  Oh, I step on His toe.  Will I learn to dance?
My Lord, my Father, my Master, He is patient.  He guides me, then twirls me.  I am learning to relax under His leadership.  I submit to His lead.  I smile and glide.  He is a master, the Master. 
He knows how to dance and He teaches me.  I submit to His lead.  I am learning to dance.  It is becoming more natural and comfortable as I rest in His lead.  
I can dance with you; I have been taught.  I go to the Master for lessons.  He is gentle; He is passionate; He knows what He is doing.  He is making a dancer of me as I submit to His lead.  I delight in His lead.  I delight in the dance.

  1. "He is making a dancer of me as I submit to His lead". Absolutely love that line! The irony of the freedom we find when we submit to Him, right! Keep dancing. I happen to think that your dance is beautiful!!!

  3. Maria,
    I loved your FMF. Thanks for the follow on my blog....I'd already written my blog post this morning, so I didn't participate today. However, as a liturgical dancer, your words resonated with me in a special way, as I find the ministry of dance such a powerful way to worship. I could dance to these words.
    Thank you for the blessing.
    Peace and good.
