Party’s Cancelled, Let’s Dance. Life crashes the party, but there’s always a way to dance.

Posted: April 9, 2016 in Uncategorized

Sometimes there are a couple of life events that come out of nowhere and all you want to do is hide. Much of the time life deals us the same stuff that doesn’t sneak up on us, but takes its’ toll and smiling and dancing are easily tucked away in the closet.

The song goes “…we can dance if we want to, we can leave your friends behind…” It’s a forgotten truth, but we can rejoice and express our joy in dance or in whatever expresses the gift God places in our heart.

Habakkuk 3:17-19 expresses a response to an agricultural disaster we can learn from, even if we don’t live on a farm. This guy’s going to party and celebrate God regardless. Is it a reckless choice he makes or does he know something else?

Even Paul shares his story, with a strange response to the hard stuff of life. Check out 2 Corinthians 1:8-9. God taught him to trust Him totally, which wasn’t a bad idea since God can raise dead people. Paul even said it couldn’t get any better than this.

How do you get to this kind of place? Is it reserved just for people who made it into the Bible?

WHAT THIS MEANS: When we choose to believe God really is who He says He is and means what He says about life stuff, we have the freedom to dance whenever. Satan can try to  cancel the party, but he can’t touch our joy. It’s about choice.
