Just Dance

“…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.

  1. Stet Kesha first i ask that you please forgive me all this time i have been spelling your given name wrong. I continue to Thank God and Jesus for your obedience in being a righteous vessel of God, the pen to His paper for all that He has for you to share in that of testaments and truths. I live daily for the devotional time that is given. I asked that you lift me up in prayer. I am under heavy attack from the enemy and it is causing a dark cloud to fold over me. I feel like my feet has been Jammed in neutral and i can’t or won’t seem to move. Please all warriors of the Kingdom of God i ask for Help please. In Jesus Name.

      1. Its just a typo error i know your heart is in the right place. I love to dance and i feel in heart it looks perfect but if i was to see myself im sure i would see error so follow your ❤

    1. Mia, God is still there with you. I know it looks like you are defeated but you are not. Continue to pray and believe that God will work it out in his own way, not your way. Just think back on the past and how God has brought you out of situations. You are alive today and that’s a good starting place. Praise God for his deliverance and healing. He will show up. Stay encouraged!

    2. Dear Mia,

      We’ve all experienced dry seasons at some point or another in our lives. Some of us might be going through one right now. It’s a time when we don’t feel as close to God as we once did and our prayers feel like they’re not being answered and we’re just so tired of trying!

      The key is to stubbornly refuse to give up because the breakthrough only comes when you make up your mind not to give up no matter what happens. Keep fighting the good fight of faith. Follow the example of Jesus who faced severe opposition but still refused to give up till he made it all the way to the cross, falling down at least 3 times on the way but getting back up again. He was so hurt, tired and weak that he couldn’t even carry his cross by himself. And when he got on the cross, the pain was just unbearable! He could have stepped down from that cross when he just couldn’t take it anymore because the pain and the internal struggle was just too much. But yet, he held on. He kept fighting the good fight till he won.

      Imagine what would have happened if Jesus said, “I’m so sorry Father. The pain was just too much. I tried but I just couldn’t take it anymore and these people don’t even know or appreciate what I’m doing for them. They’re so ungrateful and unworthy.” Aren’t you glad that Jesus didn’t give up on us? Let’s not give up on him either, no matter how tough the battle is.

      I have been dealing with a dry season myself. I know it’s a part of the Christian walk but my mind is irrevocably made up and I’m winning this battle. I know God is very much with me even though it doesn’t FEEL like it sometimes but I’m not walking by my feelings. I walk by what God says about me. Even Jesus said, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” The truth is that God didn’t forsake him. Jesus just felt like God did. God was very much with him even though Jesus couldn’t FEEL it. The proof that God didn’t forsake Jesus even when he thought he did is clearly seen in the fact that God raised him from the dead. So I press on because I know I am more than a conqueror through Christ who loves me and gave himself for me.

      Everyone will experience a dry season sooner or later. My encouragement to you is to not give up hope. Those sweet days in the Lord will return. Keep seeking him. Keep pressing through. Keep serving. Keep meditating on his word. Keep soaking your mind and heart with your favorite worship songs. Keep confessing out loud what God says about you and you will make it safely to the promised land where you feel that closeness and intimacy with God again and you see answers to your prayers almost immediately and it feels like you’re walking on cloud nine. You will come out even stronger and better than you were before.

      Here’s a message from one of my favorite preachers that has blessed my socks off and will bless you tremendously if you can commit to listen to the whole thing. It’s a little over an hour long but well worth the time investment. I love you and pray that the Lord will deeply refresh and renew your soul.
