Years ago before my husband courted me (we were best friends at the time) I was dating another man. I had learned to always pray about my relationships after having been through a horrible experience years before. God always answers when you pray, you just have to be listening. He often does it in unexpected ways.
So one night, after one of those prayers, I went to sleep & I had a dream. I dreamt that I was dancing with that man I was dating at that time and he kept stepping on my feet and hurting me. I was getting frustrated and just felt so out of step. Then I felt a tap on my shoulder and a hand reached out to me. When I looked I realized it was God and I was completely captivated by His love, tenderness, and smile. He took me by the hand and I began dancing with my Daddy God. We were gliding so smoothly across the clouds. It was so incredibly beautiful. I was filled with such peace and love in my spirit. As we continued to dance He spoke to me saying…. “This is how the right relationship should feel and be…No man should step on your feet or distract you from me. He will follow my lead and lead you as you need to be lead.” It was truly an incredible dream that really impacted me and my view on relationships.
A couple weeks after having that dream the relationship ended. It became so obvious that we weren’t being called together by God. I am so grateful that I didn’t attempt to force it or try to make it work because 7 months later the Lord revealed to my now husband that God was giving me to him as his wife.
Oh and life has been such an incredible dance with him! I couldn’t have asked for a better partner! We’ve used some of our previous experience at times, made corrections in some of our moves when necessary, and have had to learn and create new steps together (those are the best!). Most importantly God has been our dance instructor from the beginning and still is. He corrects us when move wrong, applauds us, and makes up new routines for us to follow as we grow as partners.
All in all it’s been just like my dream and I wouldn’t change a thing.
& my favorite part is that every now and then, my Daddy God still steps in, reaches out His hand, and asks to cut in. Then He takes me in His arms and we dance away on the clouds of heaven together.
The fullness of Your grace is here with me
The richness of Your beauty’s all I see
The brightness of Your glory has arrived
In Your presence God, I’m completely satisfied
For You I sing I dance
Rejoice in this divine romance
Lift my heart and my hands
To show my love, to show my love
A deep deep flood, an Ocean flows from You
Of deep deep love, yeah it’s filling up the room
Your innocent blood, has washed my guilty life
In Your presence God I’m completely satisfied
