The Circle Dance

Gilgal – The Circle Dance

It’s been a while since I picked up my Joshua journal, opening the book, thumbing through the pages finding today’s date – Day 30 – and the words penciled – Gilgal.

Gilgal – the circle dance.

Spinning back around to the Promises of God. Held back, often by ourselves or the people we travel with in life, from the Promises of God. –

What is my Gilgal?  What promises am I circling back around to today? Lord, I don’t believe it is by happenstance I reached for this book today. What are You speaking on this 30th day of this season?

“Command the priest who bear the ark of the Testimony to come up from the Jordan…and it came to pass, when the priest who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD and come from the midst of the Jordan, and the soles of the priests’ feet touched the dry land, the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and overflowed all its banks as before….and they camped in Gilgal.” Joshua Chapter 4:14-20 NKJV

Gilgal – The place where the priest, (a shadow of you and me) the place where the priest feet stood firm (trusting in God) in the crossing of the Jordan, (into the Promise Land) bearing the Ark of the Covenant, (His Word tucked into our spirit, soul, and mind) to come up out of this year stepping into all the good promises found in His Word and encamp there (staying in the Word, circling back around time and time again to His faithful promises) in the coming new year.

The circle dance of Gilgal.

“The Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, Amen.” Galatians 6:18 NKJV

“Praise the Lord!

Sing to the LORD a new song…

Praise His name with dancing…

For the Lord delights in His people.”

Psalm 149:1-4 NLT

Seedtime and Harvest

Heavy rain throughout the night.

Sunlight peeks the dawn’s first light.

Despite the masses fear and dread,

Spring arrives!

Just as You said.

“While the earth remains,

Seedtime and harvest,

Cold and heat,

Winter and summer,  

And day and night

Shall not cease.”

Genesis 8:22 NKJV

Bird’s in view.

Oh, I’ve enjoyed the season; rest and family time.

Open up the year LORD,

Direct my steps according to Thine.”

Over-fed, Stuffed or Blue?

What do I need to begin the new year fresh and new?

Nourishment that won’t cause me to feel over-fed, stuffed or blue?

Jesus…Jesus…Jesus.

May you begin the New Year feeding on the One Who is the finest bread of nourishment for our body, souls and spirits.

Jesus.

“And Jesus said to the, “I AM the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” John 6:35 NKJV
