time to dance

"The Chase" triptych

“The Chase” triptych

You did it: you changed wild lament
into whirling dance;
You ripped off my black mourning band
and decked me with wildflowers.
I’m about to burst with song;
I can’t keep quiet about you.
God, my God,
I can’t thank you enough.
Psalm 30:11-12

  1. I’ve been thinking about this week that God made things to have seasons…There is a time to mourn and a time to laugh. HE knows when seasons come and when it is time for the seasons to change. That is why we can trust Him and entrust ourselves to Him in every season. All praises to our faithful, merciful God!!

    I love this painting. Precious! Perfectly captures the freedom and beauty of being a child of God.

    Love and grace to you today in Christ Jesus, dear friend –

  2. Needed this just now. I’ve been hit with the yucky cold that’s been shared around the Center (thought I’ll be better for your visit!) and it’s just been a hard week in recovery. The first words about chaining lament into whirling dance lift my spirits. Thank you!
