"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. That 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, spiritually out-of-step or I'm tempted to temporarily dance with the devil... Yikes, everything falls out-of-synch and I feel totally worn, torn and abused.
So, today, I'll be...
Dancing with Jesus...dmc
PS - Joe's mom, Mabel Colaw, went to be with Jesus today in 2010. Happy Heavenly Birthday, Mom! Dance on with Jesus!
