THE HAPY DANCE ~
The first day of Spring. Winter is on the way out and the rains will stop soon. I find myself liking the weather change and I know that change is good for us.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
A Time for Everything
3 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot.
As this journey of life continues, we find ourselves in different seasons in our personal lives. Some are happy, some sad and some just a mixture of both. I was talking with my husband the other day and recalled some hard times of life. We just sat down to go over where God has brought us from. We made some wrong financial choices and it brought our hearts to break. We listen to people we trusted and invested wrong. We can't go back to that season and change one thing. It's over, it's done and the money is gone. So our choice must be to press forward and let it go. Making right choices now and wisdom in handing our money today.
How about you? Have you made some choices that are just hard to let go of? Do you wish you had another chance and able to do it over? Well, we can not do somethings over, but we certainly can better our today. It's not to late to turn somethings around and spend money the right way. It's important to take care of you and your own family before you try to help others. Stop to think before your react and seek God for wisdom.
Philippians 3:14-15 King James Version (KJV)
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you
THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING ~
Brings choices of a new day and a happy dance
Psalm 149 New International Version (NIV)
1 Praise the Lord.
Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.
2 Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
3 Let them praise his name with dancing
and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
4 For the Lord takes delight in his people;
he crowns the humble with victory.
5 Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor
and sing for joy on their beds.
THE JOY OF THE LORD ~
There is something about dancing that makes the heart happy. I think that's why people call it, "the happy dance". God has created us to be joyful and to praise. Praise comes in different ways for different people. What make your heart happy today? The sun the comes out, the laughter of a small child, the remembrance of where God has brought you from or a new friend? So many choices of what can make us happy in one day. Maybe just he knowing that God is in control of your life or you. Turning things over to God is a surrendered life style.
My heart cries out for hurting people and their new choices ahead. The choice of seeing yourself the way God does and letting go of what you can't change. Spring is here and let us spring into a new day with joy. Being confident of who you are in God and allow him to continue to mold you into a better person. Go about sharing God's love with someone today. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
