Dancing in the Minefields

I heard this song on the way to work this morning and felt so compelled to share it.  When I get feelings like those, I feel it is of the Lord and I need to share them with you, because someone reading needs to hear this.  I also couldn’t help but to think of my sweet friend and her husband who are adopting a child right now, and are going through a period of waiting (aka a Minefield).  The lyrics to this song are so powerful, and I encourage you to go listen to it HERE.

Dancing in the Minefields (Andrew Peterson)

Well I was 19 you were 21
The year we got engaged
Everyone said we were much to young
But we did it anyway
We got the rings for 40 each from a pawnshop down the road
We said our vows and took the leap now 15 years ago

Chorus:
We went dancing in the minefields
We went sailing in the storm
And it was harder than we dreamed
But I believe that’s what the promise was for

Well ‘I do’ are the two most famous last words
The beginning of the end
But to lose your life for another I’ve heard is a good place to begin
Cause the only way to find your life is to lay your own life down
And I believe it’s an easy price for the life that we have found

Chorus:
And we’re dancing in the minefields
We’re went sailing in the storm
And it was harder than we dreamed
But I believe that’s what the promise was for
That’s what the promise is for

Bridge:
So when I lose my way, find me
When I lose loves chains, bind me
At the end of all my faith
to the end of all my days
when I forget my name, remind me

Cause we bear the light of the Son of man
So there’s nothing left to fear
So I’ll walk with you in the shadow lands
Till the shadows disappear
Cause He promised not to leave us
And His promises are true
So in the face of this chaos baby
I can dance with you

Chorus:
So lets go dancing in the minefields
Lets go sailing in the storms
Oh lets go dancing in the minefields
And kicking down the doors
Oh lets go dancing in the minefields
And sailing in the storms
Oh this is harder than we dreamed
But I believe that’s what the promise if for
That’s what the promise is for

  1. Thank-You so much for sharing this song!! It was so beautiful, and (although I didn’t need reminder) it reminds me of why I said “I Do” to Jess. Thanks again!
