Alright, my husband already beat me to putting this on his blog but I'm going to go ahead and post it.
In church this morning, we viewed a dramatic interpretation. I'm usually not much for these as I feel that it's pretty impossible to humanly "act out" the gospel in an adequate and appropriate way but this...I fell in love with.
I've always described myself as the girl nobody ever really asked to dance. It used to bother me to be "average". Who am I kidding? It REALLY bothered me to be average! Sadly, that drove me to make some selfish decisions in my life and hurt many people.
I've met many women like me since then...girls who want to feel "value". They seek it in places they don't belong and in people who cannot fulfill. They look for it in a new dress or a better size on the scale. More money, more security, more safety-more. All of these things that promise to bring your life worth only end up making you feel more worthless. The vastness deep inside of us...only gets emptier. It is a dark place to live even if you find ways to "manage" it for a while. It leaves you contemplating permanent escape.
Women, wonderfully created in God's image and desperately longing for the "dance".
I'm okay being who I am today. While I'm average and faulty and not so good at any one thing-I'm the choice select of my God. I'm His prize. I'm beautiful to Him..in fact, I'm perfect in His sight. He fills that vastness in me and cleans me off to give me true worth.
He's my dance partner.
Please take a second to watch this video. I feel it is me that it is portraying. I couldn't keep the tears from coming as I watched it. If you feel He's rescued you-You'll cry too!
