so as i have been doing my devotions, i came across this verse. and it has stuck with me since. it's important that we don't let others bring us down, or crash our dreams, but to believe in what's in front of us and what God's plan for our lives is.

"never give up on something you can't go a day without thinking about"

- Psalm 111:7

love is ..

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast
It is not proud. Love is not rude, it is not self-seeking
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs
You see love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, it always perseveres
Love never fails. Love is everlasting
Its eternal, it goes on and on, it goes beyond time
Love is the only thing that will last when you die

auditioning for a role in the story.

So today if I could offer you one piece of advice as you lace up your dancing shoes, let it be this: Dance unashamed. Rise up and share that you are the beloved of God and that you are here to proclaim His name. Dont be quiet about it, and don't be timid. Praise his name with dancing. Give Him all the glory, and enjoy the performance - God will certainly enjoy it! As you dance, you will face hard times and tough sessions, but have fun. Let the music flow through you. Then, when you are ready, God will open the doors and lead you to the stage, where the world will be able to watch. What they see will amaze them, just as it amazed you as you caught your first glimpse of yourself dancing the Divine Dance.
The woman who dance only for God will be different. She will be unlike anything the world has ever seen. She will be bold and daring, gentle and caring - all at the same time! She will be you, but she will be more than you. She will be God in you - for the entire world to see. Enjoy the quiet time alone in the studio with God as you meditate on His word and memorize His steps.
Get ready to live the life that you were truly meant to live, because God has been waiting for this moment ever since He gave you feet. Let the world fade into the background and dance for God alone.

the divine dance.

So the other day I started a new devotion book, that I will admit had been sitting beside my bed for some time now! It's called "The Divine Dance" and it's definitely given me alot of things to already think about, just after reading the setting the stage part! It talked about if the world is our stage, who are we performing for? It talks about how I hold center stage in God's heart. And that he has seen me at my best and my worst. He knows my flaws, but still he wants me. He wants to love me, to hold me, and keep me close to his heart forever. He has seen all my costumes, and sat through every performance, but yet he still likes me best when im not performing at all. He likes me best at the end of the day, when the other audiences are gone and all my masks come off. Whether i'm smiling or crying. He loves me. And wants to give me the world. But all my concentration on my performances has kept me from seeing the answer to all my heart has ever wanted. God calls out to me, but sometimes I cannot hear him. Sometimes I'm missing the fulfillment of my dreams and plans, and the desires of my heart. Somewhere I've disregarded the invitation God sent, because I was invited to another party put on by this world. And the moment I fail to mesmerize them, I'm cast aside. Each of us is a dancer, we dance our way through life, performing for others. And by the time we reach teen years, or adulthood we've all become artists. It's the reason we dress the way we do. It's the reason some of us got up and put make up on this morning. And it's all to make a certain statement about ourselves. Once again were all performers, and we audition for a place in the hearts of everyone we meet. We all want to be beautiful to someone - anyone, really. And that can get us in trouble. Because the world is a place that will lie to us. It tells us what we want to hear to get what it wants from us. Yet we all have alot to offer. We all possess authencity, and thats a rythym the world can never dance to. At best, the world offers poor imitations of everything you've ever wanted. So why then, do we dance so hard on this stage? Why do we try so hard to please the crowd? We become unfifilled, because God did not want us to dance for the world. He intended us to dance for him. All we need to do is give up the world, and the riches of heaven will be ours. Today YOU and me can have the performance of a lifetime, and I hope you don`t pass it up. You can watch from the side but really it won`t do you any good. No matter your music, or your style, dance unto the Lord. Not only will you be changed, but you will also change others with your song.
