Dancing to the Melody of the Future

“Hope is hearing the melody of the future.  Faith is to dance to it.”*

What is the melody that your future will compose?

How do (will) you dance to it today in faith?

“You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing.” Psalm 30:11

*My husband read this quote today in Ben Patterson’s God’s Prayer Book: The Power and Pleasure of Praying the Psalms.  Patterson credits the lovely expression of hope and faith to Rubem Alves in Tomorrow’s Child.

About Judy

At heart I am a student of truth, an observer of culture, and a communicator. Jesus is my teacher and my Lord. In pursuit of these passions, I read as much as I can, serve as Teaching Director for a Community Bible Study group, and write a blog in an attempt to synthesize it all. I take great delight in my relationships with family and friends, and I also enjoy long walks, bike rides and cooking. And did I mention that I like to read?

    Dancing in faith here, for sure, Judy! I’d like to know more about “praying the Psalms”–how do you do that? Or should I just get the book? God bless you BIG. Much love, sis Cj

      I thought of you as I posted this one, Cj:) As for praying the Psalms, I haven’t yet read the book. The author was a speaker at our Community Bible Study teaching director conference back in January, and he so impressed me with his practical and inspiring application of the Psalms that I bought his book for Dan. Dan’s really enjoying it, and I’ll read it when he’s done. In general, though, I have “prayed the Psalms” in my own way when I read one that resonates with my own concern or feeling or prayer. I just re-phrase it personally and pray it! Big blessings back to you!

        How lovely and dear of you to think of me, Judy–what a big blessing that is! Okay, so I shouldn’t try to make it more complicated, difficult (burden it with rules!)–just pray it as the Holy Spirit leads? Sounds good! You’re the best–I tell everyone!
