I just want to open my arms in praise when I hear this song. Especially, “A wild dance I dance before you” calls out to my heart. This may be because I always loved dancing and haven’t had the energy for it lately.
The call to give what I alone can give is what NeedlePrayer is about for me. We each have talents and skills to use for His glory, and I believe it is our calling to find them and exercise them. In all the little ways that mean so much more than we think.
What a wonderful celebration of the joy of a relationship with our Father! He makes all things, and they are wonderful! But the song is not just for glad times. It reminds me of the comfort and joy we can have in God in the hard times too. The rain falls soft… and again, with Him:
I’m feeling like the eagle that rises Flies above the earth and it’s troubles Oh yes he knows that there are valleys below But under his wings there’s a stronger power
Abba. Father. I rejoice in the wings I shelter under!
This song answers so many needs I have when I go to Christian music. It celebrates creation. It calls me to faith and to follow. It stirs my spirit to joy and energy and fortitude.
It also contains a couple of lines which one day I hope to make into a prayer piece:
Sometimes I think of Abraham How one star he saw had been lit for me
This connection between me and Abraham through faith is so inspiring. Of course I’m not sure my faith is really in his league, but I believe God considers me a descendant of this amazing man of faith, and a child of God.
I haven’t yet found the right person or group to do this piece for, but I hope to someday!
It’s easy to get so wrapped up in our lives that we forget the opportunities all around us. They are there! I spent years thinking I couldn’t do anything because of my health and financial issues. That’s just not true! I have been doing NeedlePrayer in service of others for a year now, and it is so rewarding, and really does make a difference to my recipients, to know they are cared about.
