Dancing with the Spirit part 2

The Spirit of the Lord is not mentioned often in the Holy Scriptures 
But if you read the book of Acts you will get the full gospel picture 
Of the power of the Holy Spirit and what It can do
Of the power that God has and how it can delight in you

When you dance with the Spirit your priorities will be rearranged 
When you dance with the Spirit your whole outlook on life will change 
Understand that God desires to be in relationship with us totally 
God wants to be a part of our triumphs and our tragedies 
God wants us to dance with HIm in true harmony 
Cheek to cheek hand in hand is how God wants it to be 

Now when the Spirit comes its more than an emotional two step move 
When the Spirit comes it comes in a full transformal groove 
To touch our souls, to open our hearts and to strengthen our minds
The Spirit wants to dance with us in a manner most kind
The Spirit wants to move us out of our brokenness and our mess
The Spirit wants to call us out on those things we need to address 
To not be so concerned about what society has to say
To not be overwhelmed by life's circumstances as we journey on our way 
Now dancing with life, full of joy and spiritually purified 
Cleansed of those things that God sees as being  horrified 
Baptized by water and forged by the fire of spiritual transformation 
A new creation in Christ now housed on a new foundation 

Dancing with the Spirit jitterbugging with the Lord Christ 
Doing the spiritual salsa, the holy hustle and the tango for the rest of my life 
No longer will I define myself by my worst experience thus far
I'm now dancing with the Spirit no longer bitter nor faint of heart
Stepping out of the boat with courage and holiness abound
A new adjective before my name as the spirit in me has been found
No longer crackhead Sue but now Life Coach Susan
No longer drunken Joe but now Detective Joseph the man

Now dancing with the Spirit delivered from the adversary 
Full of godly power to fight against my enemies 
I'm dancing the merengue, the cha cha and the samba with the Holy Spirit 
I'm dancing the swing, the bolero and the mambo as I'm now with it
Dancing with the Spirit I'm doing the jive
Dancing with the Spirit and I'm feeling so alive 
Doing the gospel waltz, the holy hip-hop and the heavenly electric slide 
I'm dancing with the Holy Spirit cheek to cheek side by side
