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

Wings Restored

Enlargeth my territory,

Enlighten the skies.

Wings restored of brokenness

Darkness lifted, Spirit flies.

 

“He fills my life with good things, so that I stay young and strong like an eagle.” Psalm 103:5

Dancing Loved – Part Two

“Dancing loved my heart conceals.

He speaks His Truth in Word reveals.

Plans and purpose His good for me.

What once was lame my heart does see.”

 

“For indeed I AM for you, and I will turn to you…I will make you inhabited as in former times and do better for you than at your beginnings. Then you shall know that I AM the LORD.” Ezekiel 36:9-11 NKJV

 

Having come through a long season of waiting…my heart now sees.

Heart Dance

“Easy like Sunday morning”

I can hear the music’s strand.

Perfect heart and harmony

To dance upon the land.

Morning light,

Birds in flight,

The song of cooing doves.

“Easy like Sunday morning”,

All blessings from above.”

“His glory covered the heavens

And the earth was full of His Praise.”

Habakkuk 3:3 NKJV

All the Earth Sings

“Up before dawn;

Walking the lawn.

Cattle sing softly

Their morning song.”

“For every beast of the forest is Mine,

And the cattle on a thousand hills.”

Psalm 50:10 NKJV

 

“Praise the LORD from the earth…

Mountains and all hills;

Fruitful trees and all cedars;

Beast and all cattle…

Let them Praise the Name of the LORD!”

Psalm 148:7-1-13 NKJV

Shine the Light

Good deeds shine the day;

Compassion Lights up a life time!

 

“You are the light of the world.

A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden…

Let your light so shine before men,

That they may see your good works and

Glorify your Father in heaven.”

Matthew 5:14-16 NKJV
