Are You Still in the Dance with Me, My Beautiful One?

Mark Virkler's picture

I love sharing wonderful journaling from our students at Christian Leadership University! These amazing selections are from Linda Lindsey. Let's make sure we haven’t fallen out of our dance with Jesus! Below, the Lord speaks in Linda's journal...


Remember our dance? Let your entire life be a dance with Me...see, you don't have to be just sitting down alone in order to feel My presence and hear My voice. I will guide your dance steps all day long if you will keep your right hand in Mine, your left hand on My shoulder and My face ever before you. See, in this position I am between your face and everything and everyone else out there. You are shielded by Me and anything that comes against you will have to penetrate Me first. I will never let go of you as long as you don't let go of Me. Dance, dance, dance through the rest of your life, every waking moment, a dance with Me. I like to dance with My precious daughter.

Have you ever seen anyone dancing with a frown on their face? Monitor your face—if there's a frown or concern on it, then you have left the dance. People who are dancing with their lover are smiling, free and care-free, so monitor your face for it will indicate if you are still in the dance. When you take your eyes off your dance partner you will see some ugly things you don't need to see or concern yourself with and those will make you frown. Feel the strength of My grip in your hand and around your waist—strong enough to hold and dance with you through any and every storm. Yes, we can dance together even under the grayest and stormiest skies when lightening is flashing all around...I will be holding you. 


Yes, I am a God of beauty. Beauty in the wind, beauty in the sky, beauty in you. Your beauty, your true beauty will never fade but continue to grow even as your physical body deteriorates. In fact your beauty will shine even more because the kind of beauty you possess only comes with age and purification which takes time and reliance. Your spirit is being adorned even as we speak. You are a spiritual being so we are learning to focus there and to forget the natural being part of you. Soar in your spirit. I will let you see your spirit, which is how I see you. That natural clay pot is so insignificant, more than you know. Bring it to be your slave. Don't let it dictate for one moment what you will say or do. Let your spirit arise and be large. Do you see it—like a giant? Yes, your spirit must continue to grow larger and larger even as your body shrinks smaller and smaller in your own eyes.


I am training you little by little, just like a child. You don't have to be perfect or have it all together, all you need to do is to learn a little and grow a little every day in Me. That's not burdensome, is it? The mighty oak grows only fractions of inches at a time, but it grows and becomes magnificent, as you are growing and are becoming more and more magnificent by the day. But it's not you—remember it is Me in you.


Trust that you are hearing Me, you have to take it by faith. Without faith it is impossible to please Me. If you didn't have to accept that you hear Me by faith, then how could you please Me? Faith is what pleases Me, so be glad that it isn't obvious to your natural mind and eyes. Receive each and every word, the very next word, by faith. Receive My direction for your life by faith. It is My word that guides you, none other than My word. Remember it was My word that got this whole thing rolling in the first place. It is still My word that keeps it rolling and everything held together. Stay tuned to My word and believe it IS My word that you hear. 


Lord, how do You see me?

I see beauty. I see the beauty of a heart that loves and craves Me. I see your potential—the possibilities. I see the beauty of the vessel underneath all that layer of dust. Let Me blow away the dust.

I ask You to blow the dust off of me. Blow it all away!

Let Me orchestrate every moment. I am the Conductor. Take your eyes off the score you have written, stop feverishly playing it. STOP, sit and look at Me. Watch My face, watch My baton.

My prayer of repentance: I see that I do only what I like, only what I agree with and I haven't been open to see Your true will. I surrender my will to You, knowing that it will be tested. Teach me how to lean on Your strength...

God's Heart for You

God's Heart for You

a devotional by Uta Milewski | 100 pages

Do you sometimes struggle with thoughts and feelings that you don't measure up? I do and I sometimes need a second opinion and a different perspective. In 2006, during an intense season of first doubt and then searching, God gave me His opinion, His heart for me. It set in motion the victories and freedom I now experience in life. I pray you'll be encouraged by the Scriptures and thoughts God gave me during that time.

Health Mastery Through MRT

Wouldn't it be great if there were a way for my body to tell me exactly what it needs and desires, without having to take expensive or invasive tests?

Hearing God Through Biblical Meditation

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 179 Pages | $15.99 retail list price

For many years I studied the Bible incorrectly, and it produced death rather than life. Even though I had a knowledge of the Scriptures, I did not personally experience the life and the realities they revealed. The Bible calls this the ministry of death, rather than the ministry of righteousness (2 Cor. 3:6–9). Upon coming out of Bible college, I found myself just like the apostle Paul, attacking those who disagreed with my theology.

How Do You Know?

How Do You Know?

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 180 Pages

How do you know? What is the process you use to discover truth? I did not ask that question during the first 25 years of my life. I used various methods for discovering truth such as: if my parents said so, then it was so. If my teacher said it was so, then it was so. If my pastor said it was so, then it was so. If my theology said it was so, then it was so.

How to Walk by the Spirit

How to Walk by the Spirit

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 136 Pages

Are you like many western Christians who have been taught little about how to sense their spirits? Do you have trouble even defining what spirit sensations feel like within you, much less recognizing them? This training was birthed from Mark’s passion to live out of his spirit, and thus release the anointing of God. The problem he faced was lack of clear biblical definition as to what his spirit felt like. So Mark looked up every verse in the Bible on heart and spirit.
