Spreading the love of Jesus...the Cowboy Way!

Without the pain..there would be no dance...a Moment with Jesus...

Funny how pain drives us to seek more…love more…trust more…without it would we bother at all with God? Would He ever be invited into our lives? For we are a people who seek Him in time of dire need…rather than realizing we are always in dire need…for it is why the Savior came.

This morning while I prayed I heard Him say, “if there had been no pain, there would be no dance..” I found myself saying, “you are right Lord. Without illness I would never had been still long enough to hear you speaking to me..without tears I would never have learned when your heart too cries. Without various pains of seasons of life there would be no song…and without burdens so deep that mere words can’t be found, I would not have learned to pour it out to you in dance..which to me was a new joy and a new freedom I had yet to know at your feet.”

So..thank you for the pains of life…and the things I ask you to take away from time to time…I wouldn’t miss the dance for anything and I know you waste nothing…let each one bring you MUCH glory as I allow you to make my heart stronger in you and your ways…for you are beautiful to me..

Without the pain, without the tears
Without that all consuming fear.
Without the rain that sometimes pours,
Without the hours on my knees …seeking you more.

Without the cry from deep within
Without the “whys” my mind wrestles with
Without the dark that left me still
Without the brokenness of heart in the years of being ill..

There’d be no dance….there’d be no song….there’d be no sweet melodies from a heart becoming strong..
There’d be no love …authentically…there’d be no passion to share..what you’ve learned from me….
And most of all…yea most of all…there’d be no dance.

Without the loss of words in times of grief
Without the scars of hidden memories
Without the lessons learned that sometimes sting
From years of what seemed like broken dreams..

There’d be no dance….there’d be no song….there’d be no sweet melodies from a heart becoming strong..
There’d be no love …authentically..
there’d be no passion to share..what you’ve learned from me…
And most of all ..yes most of all…there’d be no dance.

Yet in that moment of emptiness when you question your strength
And when you’re overcome by heaviness..
Freedom comes..when you dance for me…………yes dance for me…

There would be no dance….and there would be no song….there’d be no sweet melodies from a heart I’ve made strong..
There’s be no love…birthed authentically..there’d be no passion to share..what you’ve learned from me….
And most of all yes most of all…..there’d be no dance….there’d be no sweet dance…

Love MUCH,

I'm new to the site and have just 'discovered' the blogs pages.  The words were so very moving and so very true.  Thank you so much.  It brings comfort at a time when pain seems once more to be rising on the horizon for me.
