Just Dance

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in devotions

“…I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” John 10:10, Amplified

I remember one time I went salsa dancing with my husband. Before we hit the dance floor, I envisioned myself doing all the right moves, all the right twists and turns. In my mind, I was a national salsa dancing champion. We got on the floor and the music was just right, the mood was just right, my hubby was looking just right, but my hips were not moving just right. I could not make my body do what I was envisioning in my head. So finally I let go of all expectations and demands I had placed on myself, closed my eyes and just danced.

Just dance…

Your life may not be where you always envisioned it would be just yet, but all you have is now. Remove the unrealistic expectations and unfair demands of perfection you’ve placed on yourself…close your eyes…and just dance. Really experience life. Really experience God’s love. Enjoy the knowledge that you belong to the Lord and feel the joy of sharing Him with others. Enjoy the life God has given you as you cast every care on Him!

Prayer: Father God, thank You for the life You have given me. Show me how to fully live it without placing demands of perfection on myself. Help me to just dance, just live, and enjoy the gift of life You’ve given me and live it to the full in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

God will strengthen you!

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10

Throughout history, women of God experienced weariness of heart. They had to go to God to strengthen them, and just as He was with them, God is with you. Just as He was their strength, He will be your strength too. He will uphold you by His right hand. He will help you go a little farther. He will help you walk by faith when nothing makes sense. He will help you by His Holy Spirit to keep standing for what is right in His eyes.

No matter how tired you feel my sister, keep going. Keep seeking God for His wisdom and keep receiving His supernatural strength. He will cause all grace to abound towards you. He will fill you completely and will be your fuel. He will renew and refresh you. He is your strength.

Prayer: Father God, I ask that you strengthen me according to your word. Without your strength, I can’t walk another mile. Without your help, I won’t last another day. I need you God more now than ever. Refuel me, LORD. Renew my strength. Refresh me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Meditate on this today: “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9
