Dance Like Nobody’s Watching…

Work like you don’t need the money. Love like you’ve never been hurt. Dance like nobody’s watching. Satchel Paige

Meditation: Freedom in the Spirit of God is an amazing experience. It means being free from seeing money and power as the purpose of life. It is freedom to forgive wounding and dare loving again. It means becoming free from fear of judgment and free for joyful self-expression. Today my 14 year old daughter danced her first solo in front of a large audience. She waited for ten years for this moment. The past years she has generally been rather shy and worried about what others might think of her. However, today there was freedom. Today God’s Spirit was tangibly present. My daughter had chosen her own music and her own costume. She prepared her own makeup. She danced coming into her own. All fear was gone. There was presence and joy and self-expression. She danced like nobody was watching. Freedom is an amazing experience. Thanks be to the Spirit!

Prayer: Spirit of The Living God, you free us from fear. You liberate us to come fully into our own. It might take years. It might take our whole life. However, Your will for us is to be free from all anxieties that keep us from being passionate, loving and self-expressive – just for the sake of it, and not for secondary reasons or gains. Your Spirit is freedom. And we are grateful! Amen

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2. Corinthians 3:17
