It’s a captivating ballet dance of the soul, as you follow Jesus on the journey of trust into the unknown. Walking by faith and not by sight. The practicing of faith makes you strong. The most beautiful things require the most work, as one who digs for gold. Or passing through the valley of death, like a woman in the labor of childbirth. She goes through the bitter pain to receive the new life.
Like a ballet dancer, who smoothly twirls and leaps across the wooden stage, trained to be light as a feather carried by grace. Beauty can be painful, like balancing on pointe shoes, there are times of excruciating pain. When heartache comes as waves of grief, Jesus draws you close to His heart.
Extreme measures of training of the agony that you have gone through are creating lasting beauty. Learning to trust God in His faithfulness can be a time of rigorous pushing, resisting the winds of doubt and unbelief. The pressure of the soul transforms you into the perfection and clarity of a diamond.
There are times that are sanctified for rest, to regain the energy to finish the dance in a spectacular presentation. The afflictions that you have walked through are creating strong and beautiful dancer legs to leap and pirouette when lifted up on the stage of lights. There is beauty made through the breaking.
There comes a time of testing in a real diamond when life or death depends on what you believe, in the flames of refining. Not loving her life unto death, the dancer has blisters on her feet. She has burn marks of pain on her skin from reaching the end of her will, through the oil press. It is in that bow of surrender that Christ becomes her strength.
Tears are released, running down her cheeks, as an overflow. Every ounce of her heart pours out as an offering of her soul. A burnt offering of surrender, spreading herself across the altar of the heart, she gives herself completely to Jesus with trust. She dances because Jesus is her passion.
“The act of surrender is a dance of love and trust. Trust falling into my faithful love. Through laying down in surrender, you will encounter the sea of my love. Like a grain of wheat that dies and bears much fruit. Be confident in who I am. I am always good. When you can’t go any further, rejoice because your breakthrough has come.
I have planned ahead, secretly storing up my gifts so that your hope will not be broken. When you cannot see the path ahead, stay anchored in hope. Every good and perfect gift coming down just in time. Be patient and trust, hope is stronger than pain. When the pain is too much, look to me. Enter my rest and I will lift you up on eagles wings.
Let me take the lead, I am orchestrating my plan. In the rise and fall of waves of glory and grace, the sea sways with me. Lay down, let it all go and let the water roll over your head. Release to me every tension and every fear that weighs on your chest. I will shoulder your weakness, rest in my love.
Expect the unexpected, believe that I taking care of you. Those who hope in me will not be disappointed. Let me be your hiding place, hope in my Word. Beauty and joy will fill your world. I am coming through your afflictions as a rushing wind and a cascading waterfall of love.
No more will you be bound in a hopeless state. This very day I declare to you a double blessing for your pain. All that you lost will be returned in double measure. Come, rest in my heart. Reach your promises out of surrender. You are a dazzling jewel that will shine, shimmer and glow. I know your pain and I will make you like new, revived and restored.
You are being filled with all joy and peace as your trust in me. Don’t be afraid, only believe. Abraham trusted for a lamb, instead, I gave him a ram. Abundantly above all you can ask, hope or think, I always give BIGGER. I will do just what I promised and I will bless you with laughter. The damage that the fire left will be renovated into beauty. You will get a fresh start as if destruction never happened. The suffering was used to make you stronger. From the lowest place, you will reach the highest leaps.
I am on your side, you are seated in my favor. I’ll bless you – Oh how I’ll bless you because you have surrendered to me in total trust! Laying down every treasure in trust is an act of true love.
Don’t even worry one bit. I am a God of surprises and I have an extravagant plan. I will open your eyes and soon will you see it. You will receive the reward of your faith, to have exactly what you have believed. You are a real diamond, formed through the pain into a rare beauty, a dancer of my heart. I will manifest my promise, just in time, and you will rise quickly out of the ashes”.
