“See! The winter is past: the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves is heard in our land” (SS 2:11, 12)
A man had a dream. He saw a set of big feet in the sand. They were orderly and moved on a straight line. Then he saw another set of feet, much smaller, going zig –zag, all over the place. After sometime, the smaller feet became one with the big ones. Inside each big foot there was the shadow of the smaller one. That went on for a long time.
Then later he saw that the two sets of feet separated once more. The smaller feet went like mad, zig- zag all over the place. Here in Nigeria, that type of ‘crazy’ pattern we call it ‘ja-ga-ja-ga’.
The man saw the Lord Jesus in the dream and asked him about these three designs in the sand. The Lord said that when he was ‘a baby’ Christian, he was walking quite independent from Him. He was still stubborn and over active. Then the two sets of feet merged together. That is when he became a mature Believer, one with Him in will and purpose.
Then the man said to the Lord: ‘I understand that. But please why are our feet separating again? Did I backslide? Did I become as stubborn and overactive as at the beginning? I am worried Lord…’ The Lord smiled and said:‘No, My beloved….That ‘ja-ga-ja-ga’ pattern you saw is when we started dancing together…’
This evening, during the prophetic prayer meeting, we just danced in the presence of the Lord. All the chairs went up side down as we did pirouettes and tangos and waltzes and cha-cha –cha under the stars. “Dance with me Lord, Lover of my soul! To the Song of all songs…”
Right now my feet are hurting but my liver smiles….
