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

Thank you for encouraging words. Life is how God gives not how we imagine it should be. ” Some days you just have to put your boots on and dance anyway”. Just wanted to let you know how you lifted me up out of the can’ts into the ” cans through Him who strengths me.” I’m gonna dance today!

Your devotions are amazing and always right on target with where I’m at. They seem to be right from the heart of God. They are encouraging and uplifting every day. I am a perfectionist and do want to enjoy this life but am so caught up in expectations of how I think life should be that I fail to celebrate the moment. Thank you for this timely reminder. Life is a gift and needs to be unwrapped daily and enjoyed, no matter my circumstances.
I actually just saw this message but Gods timing is Perfect… I also am a perfectionist in so many ways as you see it is defenitly not with spelling or punctuation… I do need to just let go and Dance and Trust that He is right there holding my hand and Dancing with me through this Journey we call Life… I Love You Father God, Jesus and Holy Spirit… Thank You for Loving Me.💖
Just what I needed today. Fervently praying about some goal but I’m weary from trying to be perfectly ready for the goal which makes me so anxious and always in rush. This made me relax and thank God for today and now. Hallelujah!
Yes, thank you again. I’ve just been diagnosed with cancer & was avoiding this devotional. Now I’ll marry my fiancé as planned (God willing) & try to learn to dance (in His time).
Great is thy faithfulness that is renewed every morning and your mercies endure for ever
Thanks for this devotional. It has been a great blessing to me and I pray that the Lord continues to use you to reach out to more people who desperately need to hear Him.
Just dance is for me . Thank you Jesus !I
I will praise you through every situation and trust you for abundant life. Glory be to God. Hallelujah!
