As most of you know, I am a dancer. That word has been part of my life since I was 6 years old. The Lord has called me to do that and He’s been on me about it ever since I was introduced to praise dance ministry. But unfortunately I’ve been running y’all, not realizing that I was running away from it.

I was very frustrated with dance ministry every now and then but my heart and passion for it was heavy. I wanted to be the best dancer that I can be. I wanted to make sure that I was in shape, that my training was up to part, and my lines were clean. If I was going to minister, I wanted to do it with excellence. I believe that if this is what God wants me to do, I should do my part by edifying my craft as much as I can. The thing with practicing your passion and edifying your craft, it can distract you from actually following through with your vision. That’s what happened to me. I was focused on being better for about a year now and I’ve been ignoring the tugs and the moments when it was time to transition. I began to wonder at times who I was being better for, myself? Or God?
I was bitter and refused to join the dance ministry at my church. Then one day, they ministered and the Lord literally broke me and I was like,
“OK GOD, I MISS IT!”

On Friday, I ministered with the dance ministry for the first time. I meditated on the word we was given and the song aligned with how my week went. So I say that to let you know that I was ready to dance away for the Lord and give Him all the glory. We ministered and it was powerful. I felt the Holy Spirit fall on me afterwards. I walked quickly to my seat because I felt the heaviness weighing down on me and I fell to my knees and cried out to God. I also felt someone cover me with a sheet on my lower back. I finally wiped my tears away and got my life together only to see there was no sheet around me or on me. I get chills just thinking about it y’all. I just took that as the Lord reminding me that He has me covered and He’s with me after all the running that I’ve been doing.

It all came back full circle lol God is funny lol
I want to encourage you to not run from the calling that God has on your life. Your life, your time here on this earth, your purpose is not about you. It’s bigger than you. If we don’t walk in it and accept it now, we will keep delaying the process. Stop running because you will be found. Being found is a beautiful thing but don’t wait to be found. If you know what God told you to do, just do it. Start off by writing it down and praying for guidance. ️
Stay encouraged and God bless.
