A Woman’s Heart That Dances OLS — Week Three

There is just something so very beautiful about a rose. It is my favorite flower. And when I married, I chose Old Country Roses by Royal Albert of England as my china pattern, reflecting my love for this delicate flower. I just love this flower.

I believe we are beautiful like this rose, and we grow in beauty as we dance with our Lord, and come to know Him more and more.

Knowing the Lord changes everything for us. He makes us something new and glorious — a magnificent creation.

This week we read about the difference the dance makes in our lives and in the lives of those around us. And we saw the importance of spending quiet time with the Lord every day so that we can grow in our intimate dance with Him.

Paul speaks of our identity in Ephesians 2:10 — “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”

You are a dancer dear friend. As you grow in your relationship with the Lord, may you discover how beautiful you are in Him, just like a delicate, magnificent, glorious rose.

I absolutely loved this latest book of Catherine’s. I read it in one evening and was drawn to wanting more intimacy in my relationship with God. Catherine draws those of us wanting to dance with God, but not courageous enough to step on to the dance floor the encouragement we need to step up and let God lead the dance of our life as we surrender to Him.
Shelly Juskiewicz, Pastor to Women, Mariners Church
A Woman’s Heart That Dances by Catherine Martin is a beautifully written and composed invitation to the reader to step onto the dance floor and dance with the Heavenly Father. … I read a lot of devotionals every year, but Martin’s always have a huge heart, and they stick with me.
