“You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness,”
Hey everyone!! Happy August! So this month I started my senior year of high school (OH MY GOSH WHAT EVEN??), and I have realized that with all of the activities I do, and of course school haha, it can be hard to spend as much time focusing on my faith and relationship with God that I did during the summer. And I have also realized that the less time I spend praising our God, the unhappier I am.
I have decided that I want to make my senior year one to remember. I don’t know exactly what that means yet, other than the fact that I want to remember it as a time in my life when I was unquestionably happy. Regardless of what tests, games or meets, club meetings, or anything else that I have stressing me out. Because honestly this is last time in my life when that is all I will have to worry about.
So this summer I took up a hobby I never have before, dancing. And if you know me about all you know that I am NOT a great dancer. I was always the girl at dances who was just jumping up and down, mostly because I was embarrassed about the way I danced.
But this summer I partook in my fair share of dance parties, and I realized how freeing they can be. Now in no way am I saying that I am the next Shakira, (mostly because WHO CAN MOVE THEIR HIPS LIKE THAT), but what I am saying is that having a dance party is a stress reliever that I have found, and I actually feel closer to God during them.
Dancing is really me having fun, letting go, and letting God. And yes that sounds silly, but when you stop caring about what you look like and start caring about how you show God’s love.
Thank you so much for reading! I pray this month that you dance, literally and figuratively, in God’s light. You rock and remember to live in God’s light!
