Grace Day

from the Mourning and Dancing reading plan


Ecclesiastes 3:1, Ecclesiastes 3:4

BY She Reads Truth

Take this day as an opportunity to catch up on your reading, pray, and rest in the presence of the Lord.
Focusing on the second part of verse 4, ask the Holy Spirit for the freedom to mourn and dance in every season of your life.

Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4:

There is an occasion for everything,
and a time for every activity under heaven:

a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance

    Feeling like both of my hands have been full of grief and pain in 2016, asking God to fill one of them with joy and dancing. That I could live and find this even in hard times – that he would grant it to me. Hoping for a new season and some healing and good in 2017!

      Kristine, I hear and feel this so much with you. The one that encourages me when I’m feeling that is: she who sows in tears will reap in joy. Plant all the tears. 1% of seeds make 50% of the flowers. Don’t be afraid to plant a lot of seeds. And remember that it’s a garden analogy so it will take time. I’ve been walking for a very long time sowing tears and mourning. There have been some dancing moments, but for the most part just super hard. Hang in there.

    I was listening to a replay of the concert by Hillary Scott on the message radio yesterday and related so much to the story of her miscarriages that led to her writing the beautiful song ‘Thy Will.’ It resonated so much with me because that was literally all I could pray during the time of confusion after my second miscarriage. I couldn’t help but dance with all of heart in my living room as the song played and tears streamed down my cheeks. I wanted to share because I feel so many here can relate to that moment of truly being overwhelmed by the joy of dancing through the grief and finding peace in the storms of life.

    Danette, I wrote you a long post and it disappeared. Your words meant so much to me. I am painfully sorry for the loss of your daughter and the aftermath. I don’t know if I should post this here but [email protected].
    Thank you.
    Susan (feeling a little better)
