Lifes a Dance

While on a walk with Weston today enjoying the beautiful sunshine and listening to the birds chirping, neighbors mowing, and watching little butterflies flutter around, I was reminded that "lifes a dance." Just like the John Michael Montgomery song says, "lifes a dance, ya learn as you go, sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow!"

We often question things that arise in life and we become fearful or anxious about things. However, God wants us to give EVERYTHING over to Him. He suffered so that we don't have to. He bore the weight of the cross to set us free. He longs for us to know everything about Him. As Wes and I are in a transitioning stage and preparing to move back "home" to Tennessee we have lots on our plates. Jobs? home? finances? school for Weston? etc. etc. etc. Thinking about this song, made me smile and just realize that we have to take each day as it is and not worry about tomorrow or yesterday. Our life is in God's hand and He has a plan for our family! Whew! Why do we even worry and sweat when we know that our God will never leave nor forsake us? There will always be bumps in the road, but like the song says, "you learn as you go!" Those bumps are what build character in us and make us stronger. I know for me when I look back on some of the tough times I've endured, I see, now, how God has used those times to glorify Him more! BUT, I must be willing to allow that!

Lord we want to give all we have to YOU! Teach and mold us along the roads of this life!

  1. Glad you were able to gain this perspective! He desires us to be more and more like him. As we follow, he guides. Sometimes it's bumpy, sometimes it is joy-filled - but the one constant is God's faithfulness!
