Dance With Me

Speaking with friends yesterday, Linda reminded me to meet with Jesus where I have heard Him speak before. Ben said he meets Jesus in a boat, and Jay said he meets Jesus at the well.  I liked the idea of sitting in a boat or by the well and thought where do I meet with my Lord (as if I never had) and I remembered the dance floor. It is always my choice to seek Him.

As I dance with the LORD around the dance floor He speaks to me in whispers. I have to listen closely. Sometimes He doesn’t give it all at once, I think because He wants to meet with me daily and will give me what I need for the day.  He tells me:
“Learn to be silent before Me. Learn of My rest so you can hear My Spirit speak to you of instructions, answers to your questions, words to speak to someone in need, a prophetic word, a kind word.”
 How do we practice silence to hear the Father’s words?

Thank you LORD you are teaching me to seek you daily as a friend seeks relationship and you desire to spend time with me because you delight in me.
                Proverbs 25:11 Like apples of gold in settings of silver, so is a word skillfully spoken. New English Translation

          Zephaniah 3:17 The Lord your God is in your midst; he is a warrior who can deliver. He takes great delight in you; he renews you by his love; he shouts for joy over you.”
          Actually the Lord impressed upon me the words below but it took yesterday to make it clear to me. Tami said to me that sometimes speaking them to others helps you clarify what you heard. I agree.

          Sit in my presence and the radiance of My glory will bring you peace. The time you spend with me, the sacrifice of your time, I cherish being with you. As you spend time with me, the transformation is beginning, yield to my creative work. I make beautiful things; let me make something beautiful out of you. Hold my hand and you will see your way open up step by step.
