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)
