along the shore,
toes in the sand,
tickled by the tide,
Heart opened wide
His gaze meets mine,
“My beloved, come with Me,
And let our dance begin.
I want to show you how,
To move within the depths of Me,
Lean into the motion of my Sea,
All you have to do-
Is Look up and believe.
His rhythms, like waves, becoming mine,
His leadership, steady and constant, keep the time,
Overwhelmed by Majesty,
Connected and loved, completely
Piercing eyes, gazes locked,
Hearts and hands too,
Deeper we dance,Into the blue
When will fear come for me?
When will I sink?
When will I fail?
Questions bombard me
Fingers under chin,
Tilting my gaze back to Him,
Smiling He reassures,
“You are mine, and I’m yours”
New hope blossoms,
Going deeper still,
Away from the shore
The lightning strikes,
The waves toss me to and fro,
How did I get here?
What do I think I know?
I’m stupid, ridiculous,
This wasn’t His way,
Or else I wouldn’t be drowning,
Alone and afraid.
His eyes meet mine,
“Don’t quit now, you’re doing just fine.”
New depths reveal deeper truths
New depths require deeper roots.
This can never change,
Nothing can separate,
You are in Me, and I am in You,
No matter how shallow or deep is the blue.
So we dance.
We dance in the storm,
We dance in calm,
The steps change, as does the pace,
As do I, as I look upon His face.
He is really everything,
Everything else fades away,
He is mine! I am His!
He’s making it all new, everyday.
We dance, He leads, perfectly.
Keeping time, making space, abundantly.
Fear comes and goes, as the dance deepens,
But I keep gaining more and more of Him.
I know now, that no matter what,
Wherever He calls I will go.
He is in Me, I am in Him,
Nothing can stop us, now that I know.
“But I’m tired Lord, and overwhelmed
Just let me sink, I’m gonna let you down,”
Oh Daughter, I’ll carry you,
You can rest, we’ll make it through.
True to His word, He makes a way,
I get to dance another day.
This time with His strength,
Having none of my own,
I’m learning deep requires,
The letting go.
I let go of pride, of making my own way,
I let go of the fear of failing Him each day,
I let go of the lie that I’m all alone,
And I pick up love, true love,
Running red love, the victory,
And it is done.
I’m loved and free-
I’m loved and free and clean-
I’m loved and free and clean and called.
Called to be loved.
Called to love.
His big plan and purpose for me,
To love and be loved, fearlessly.
