Hovering On The Brink

Lots of things have happened in my life lately. So many, in fact, that I haven’t even sat down to begin writing them up until now.
God’s been doing some intensive work in my heart. We’ve been working through behavioral patterns that need to change, heart attitudes that need to be altered, and wrestling with my pride every step of the way. And probably the biggest things is that I’m going to take up dancing. Dancing as a form of worship, though. Not partner. I’m looking into lyrical and contemporary styles, and on the one hand I’m very excited to see where this goes. But on the other hand I’m afraid of being judged and disliked.
The fear that I’ll be seen as amateurish and clown-like pales in comparison to that.

But, I’m hoping, trusting, and praying that God will use these fears to teach me more about Himself, and ultimately to help me set those fears aside. Operating only in my strengths is such a big part of my life right now that even I can see how doing something deemed “creative” at a beginner’s level would be good for me. Painfully good, but good nonetheless.
