and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23
My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.
Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.
Daddy let me be secure in You only!

MAY I HAVE THIS DANCE?
Good morning Daddy. I need you today. I feel heavy under the weight of oppression and hurts that surround me. My heart's desire is to crawl up in your lap and rest my head on your strong chest and feel your strong, safe arms envelope me.
I am overwhelmed at the many women who have deep wounds and hurts, who grasp for air and life and who need you desperately. I agonize over their loneliness and fear and shame. I want them to know that you are there, available and are fighting for them but my words will not do. My works are not enough. You are the only One who can redeem and rescue.
... Oh Daddy, there are so many of us who believe lies about you and I am so sorry. Will you forgive us? Will you please show us how much you love us? Will you still our hearts and encompass us in your loving arms?
Daddy will you break open the lies and fill our hearts and minds with your Truth?
I need you Daddy. Oh I need you so much. I need a hug from you. I need you to look at me with love and tenderness. I need you to whisper words of peace and affirmation. I just need you with all my breath and life, I need you Daddy.
Tears spill over my cheeks and as I lie with my head facing the ceiling I feel the hot tears fill my ears. Joy seems to bubble from my heart as I realize how weak I am yet how strong you are Daddy. It feels so good to rush into your arms as you hold me tightly. You are so patient. So merciful. So gracious!
I think of the time when I danced with my earthly daddy when I was a young. Do you remember that? Did you see? He scooped me up and put my feet on top of his as he directed the moves for our dance. We floated around the room and I felt as if I was dancing on the clouds. I think of you now Daddy and picture my feet on yours as you carry me and direct this dance that is my life. I don't have to fear, I am in your strong and loving arms.
Oh Daddy, when I fail at answers, help or strength- Papa, You never fail. When I am at a loss in so many ways and don't know the way, you place my feet on yours and direct my paths in a beautiful, sweet, raw and real dance.
Daddy, today I rest in your arms and place my head on your chest and feel your arms tightly around me. I crawl up in your lap with a heavy heart and You whisper in my ear, "May I have this dance my beloved daughter?"
And I look up with childlike eyes and say, "Oh yes Daddy, let's dance!" - Journey to Beloved - Used with permission
I "so happened" to stumble upon this devotion from Journey to Beloved website this morning.
When I first read this I could not believe how much it affected my little girl's heart. I do not know, maybe the words affected some part of your own little girl's heart as well.
Two things are going on here with me on this.... one I did not have an earthly daddy who wanted to spend and cherish the time with me. Dancing and laughing with his daughter. The second thing is, that I DO have a Heavenly Daddy who wants to do this with His daughter! Weeeee!
Yes Daddy, You may have this dance!!
