Shall we dance? Have you ever just felt like dancing through the streets because Jesus is good? When I was a child my mother said when she discovered who Jesus was she felt like she had a new boyfriend. When I heard her say this I thought, to myself, that she was crazy and needed to check herself mentally. How utterly bizarre, for how could discovering Jesus make you think you had a boyfriend? At the time I scoffed at the thought, but it always stuck with me and I always in some way, shape or form was reminded of it.
I laugh because now I fully understand what my mother was talking about and if she is declared crazy on this thought than I have to admit that I am delighted to hang with my crazy mom while we both have Jesus as our boyfriend. You know you are crazy when you are willing to share your boyfriend…lol!
I confess as my boyfriend there are times we don’t agree, but he has a way of helping me to understand the larger picture, for he never just wants me to look at the surface of things because there is always something wonderful underneath. Jesus likes to do nice things for me and often surprises me with little gifts to help me stay positive. Jesus always speaks to my potential and is always encouraging me to do my very best. I often hear him interceding, in prayer, to the Father on my behalf and when I wake up I am often humming a tune, for Jesus was yet again singing over me as I slept. Jesus is the best provider a girl can ever have and he knows how to lead a strong woman. At times I am not sure where our relationship is heading, but he always asks me to trust Him for He knows all things and he often says he knows the plans He has for us together and He would never harm me nor leave me. I feel so safe with Him even when He is away on business He is still with me …inside.
I will never forget the first day I decided to commit to Him after He had been constantly asking me to come out and talk to Him. Jesus was constantly knocking at my door and finally I opened it April 26, 2006 at 7pm. What a great time it was and now it has been 10 years since we’ve been together…really together, and we have both committed to this relationship. Oh yes, having Jesus in my life simply makes me want to dance. Don’t you agree?
” Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” Revelations 3:20
