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, my sister.

Your life may not be where you always envisioned it would be just yet, but all you have is now. Remove any 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 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 and live it to the full in you. I roll every care over onto you. You care for me! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read 1 Peter 5:7)

  3. I forget to do this. I am in a Profession where I am the oldest amongst my peers and expected to perform physically. Sometimes I get down on myself cause I didn’t do this sooner or I am not where ” THEY ARE”. I want to be better for me and not them.

  8. Praise God for this devotional and the word the Lord has given you! This is so on point!! Just last night I was feeling angry, sad and depressed all at the same time because of the expectations and things I desire for my life. At 48 I just thought there would be more and have been quite disappointed and battle weary. I am encouraged by this and look forward to “just dancing” now and even in the future. Thank you so much!
