One of the things I’m learning as I walk out this journey is that I am really not alone. Oh, I feel alone a lot of the time, but I’m really not.
When I am struggling, in the thousands that make up my church, others are struggling too. When I am fearful, in the people that make up the staff of my church, there are those who are fearful too. When I am sad, defeated, broken by pride and shame, my family is sad, defeated, broken too.
And when I don’t know what God is saying, where He is leading me, others are questioning too.
Yesterday, I heard one of our great leaders express this. We know something is coming. We know God has great plans for us, individually and corporately. We just aren’t seeing it. God isn’t answering our questions right now.
So what do we do?
Admittedly, I tend to start answering my own questions. “I should do this or that.” I get angry at the vacuum, depressed because I am unseen. I build walls and protect.
God suggested a new tactic as I talked this over with Him.
“You can dance.”
It would be easy for me to tell you what that means. But I think it really means different things for different people. So rather than explain myself.
I’m just going to dance.
Love you guys!

You’ve got it, brother Matt!! I love you and your family!! I often pray for you.
Can you hear me giggling!?!? It’s because this is so contrary to the way I was when young and, I think, you too!! Bless God! He has busted us loose from those tethers! You can DANCE!! Hallelujah! Don’t know any steps? Never mind! Just start dancing, breathing prayers to Jesus as you cavort around. If the volume gets out of control, dance harder! When your heart tells you, maybe you better stop and rest awhile. Then you can go back and do so more!! And I think the giggling is ok too!! Bushels, tons of love in Jesus’ name, Dad
