"Spend time with Me for the pure pleasure of being in My company. I can brighten up the dullest of gray days..A mind that is unfocused is vulnerable to "the world, the flesh, and the devil," all of which exert a downward pull on your thoughts. As your thinking processes deteriorate, you become increasingly confused and directionless. The remedy is to refocus your mind and heart on Me, your constant Companion... you go step by step with Me." (250)
When I am focused on the presence of Jesus, I am able to move through my day with a greater sense of His companionship. It makes all the difference!
It reminds me of a synchronized dance between two partners who ebb and flow with rhythmic ease. It's like dancing with Jesus to the rhythms of heaven, delighting the Father, delighting the Son, delighting the soul!
When I get distracted and tempted to dance awhile with the devil...everything feels out-of-synch and I feel totally worn, torn and abused.
The video clip Melissa shared with us yesterday illustrates this in such a powerful way! Watch for the companionship, the distraction and the struggle to refocus! Join the cheers as Jesus defeats "the world, the flesh, and the devil!" Copy & Paste, then watch it for yourself!!
Ah, yes I will be...
Dancing with Jesus Today...dmc
PS - Joe's mom, Mabel Colaw, went to be with Jesus today at 2:50 pm. She has blessed our lives and so many others. What a privilege to have been her daughter-in-love!
