Minister to Me In the Dance
Last night I saw the Lord sitting next to me while I lay on my bed. His waist and head were above my head. He leaned His head down and kissed my forehead. I came into my time with Him distracted and distraught. “Shhh.” He whispered, calming me. “Let me minister to you.” He continued softly. “Lord I should be ministering to you!” I replied in surprise. “You are in no condition to minister to me.” He kissed my forehead again and caressed my head. His robes were cream underneath and brown over top. Brown sandals laced His feet.
Then I saw two of Him. The other sat at my feet across from the other Jesus at my head. They both laid hands on me. “He’s praying for me!” I exclaimed in my heart. They stretched out their arms around me surrounding my body with their body. I could feel His presence emanating from Him and my being soaking Him into me. “Thank you for praying for me.” I said. “I’m always praying for you. “ He smiled.
He lifted me up and the two merged into one as they brought me into the center of their circle. He turned me, holding my hand above my head. “That’s better!” He said, beaming a huge smile. I relaxed in His arms. ”Thank you.” I answered sheepishly. “You’re welcome.” He responded, putting one arm up and the other around my waist in a waltz position. “What happened to me?” I asked. “I’m drawing you to myself.” He answered, leading me into a waltz. I understood that this is one of the Lord’s favorite dances. He is a whirlwind. The planets, galaxies, winds, waters and all creation move in this pattern.
We stopped to walk, hold hands and look into each other’s eyes. I heard in my heart His words to look at Him and see myself as His bride. He rocked us from side to side. Our arms hung down in front of us and our fingers entwined. I kissed His cheek tenderly. He led me in another waltz while our cheeks pressed softly against one another.
I had a wonderful time in prayer with the Lord this morning. Most of it concerns our relationship together as it usually does. I felt Him powerfully today around me and praying through me. I was so amazed and grateful at His presence surrounding me as I know I don’t deserve it. I have been asking Him to help me hear Him pray so I can pray what He is praying. “Why am I not praying for the world with prayer and fasting?” I asked. “I haven’t called you to the world. I’ve called you to myself. Spend time with me. For in this I delight. You are ministering to me when we are dancing together. Minister to me in the dance and live. Live in me and through me as we dance. We are dancing the dance of life: you and I together in love. The dance produces the fruit of the Spirit you seek. Dance with me in the dance of love; the dance of life.” He continued to lead me in a waltz, as we twirled round and round.
I read John 15:1-2. “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.” I understood that the Lord had seen my fruit and purged me that I would bring forth more fruit. This is the key to the tree of life: “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” John 15:5. It is no coincidence that John wrote this because He was the disciple whom Jesus loved. The bride and the Christ life together produce the tree of life. The Lord is expanding the tree of life to me in my imagination as we walk through the scriptures together.
He took my hand that was on my Bible and brought it to His lips in a soft kiss. “It is I that should be kissing your hand.” I noted, turning my head to look at Him sitting beside me. “Drink of me.” He directed, opening His mouth to me. I drank. “Drink of me.” He repeated. I continued to drink of His love for me. He is so sweet! “Strengthen yourself in me.” He encouraged me as I continued to drink and drink and drink. “Oh how I love Him! He is so good!”
