Dancing The Journey: Reflection
“Let them praise His name with dancing and make music to Him with timbres and harp.” ~ Psalm 149:3
I’m still in awe of what took place last Saturday. What a gift it was to have 10 ballerinas come together on one stage to worship our King and help us promote TPJ! As I sat watching how graceful they were and how they glided across the stage in perfect elegance, I thought to myself… “This is what we want every woman to experience in Christ.” We want her to know that she is free. That she can dance in the Lord and throw off every chain that would try to hold her bound.
Even in the darkest seasons of our lives, we serve a God who is at work
She is not defined by her past. She’s not defined by what’s been done to her or what she has done. Shame is not her motto. Her motto is that she is a trophy of God’s grace. He wants to do something incredible with her life. There is no one too far gone for Him. No brokenness that He cannot heal. No amount of ashes that He can’t bring beauty from.
We serve a God who is at work even in the darkest seasons of our lives. He is on the throne and He will be faithful through it all. Every song declared how God is someone who can be trusted even when life seems chaotic. Songs like, “Via Dolorosa, He’s Got the Best of my Love, and Breath of Heaven” revived our souls as we watched the ballerinas dance this with such elegance.
Ballet pieces sharing the lives of the 5 women in Jesus lineage, the full armor of God, and the woman at the well reminded us why we serve and who we are serving at TPJ. These beautiful displays of Scripture in dance left me in awe and breathless at the wonder of God. They were beautiful.
Then there was the finishing number that lit my spirit on fire. The one that ignited a deeper passion within me and gave me fresh fuel for the days ahead. That number was “Second Chances.” Oh, how beautiful it was to watch all 10 ballerinas on that stage show every woman that God is a God of restoration. He is a God of healing. He is a God who brings beauty from the ashes. He is a God of second chances!
