Dancing Shoes — 16 Comments

  1. Beautiful! I was reading a book recently where the author challenged us to remember that children have the same Holy Spirit dwelling within them as we do. Just because they’re doesn’t mean the Spirit diminishes His power in them!

  2. Dear Diane, this brought tears to my eyes, for my husband collects heart rocks for me much like your precious daughter collects heart objects for you. Each one a memory of love tucked away. And your story of the worship dance reminded me of my 2 daughters when they were little floating around the family room to Wee Sing Praise Songs. Not quite as momentous as your daughter at church, but still out of joy for Jesus. Just filled with joy. Thank you for sharing this glorious memory and inviting us to join in!

    • Oh, Melissa! What a delight it must be to have a husband and daughter’s with those qualities. I am do glad the Lord orchestrated this family for you. Thanks also for sharing the devotion blessed you. That is very encouraging, sister.

    • Thank you, Yvonne. Danielle was so precious with her worship I will treasure it forever. And how the Lord chose to confirm that she really did know what it means to be saved I also will treasure forever. It was quite a moment.

  3. This is so beautiful. Jesus please give me a heart of love to dance for you. Matthew 18:2,” Unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”

  4. Thank you, Chip Mattis. I thought so too. Her worship was moving! The only fictional part was the last dialogue line. I added, “when I put my dancing shoes on.” She was twirling, though, to demonstrate to Mommy she really knew Jesus was in her heart. I cherish the memory…. Danielle is a sweet young lady, age thirty and-a-half now, and for Christmas I got her a grown-up looking heart-cross pendant, and a replacement pendant for her childhood pendant that here dance teacher gave her. Somewhere along the way, we lost the original and we were heartbroken about that. As I’m sure you can imagine well, Danielle and I both cried when I gave her the heart-cross pendants and the story Dancing Shoes.
