This morning as I was walking from the train station to my job I began to get teary eyed. At the time, I was listening to a song called “Are You Ready Bride”. This song really stirred up some raw feelings in me. I try my best to hold it in but by the time I got upstairs and walked toward my desk, I began crying. The tears were just rolling down and I could not do anything about it. These were not tears of sadness but tears of joy. At that moment it hit me that I’m finished! I’ve just completed a two year dance program that will enable me to teach dance to others. I’m so grateful to God for getting me through it all. As this song came on that talks about the bride of Christ becoming ready to meet Him…I just became overwhelmed and realized that through this program God had brought me to another place in my relationship with him. He had prepared me for a new level and deeper things he has in store for me. Of course I knew this all along, but it’s another thing when it comes to pass.
You see in 2005 after taking a dance intensive and receiving the call to dance, God began giving me a desire to teach dance. No I was not a professional dancer, but he was calling me to do this. I just wanted to share with others all that I was learning. This desire was confirmed by a word of prophesy. I thought it may happen sooner rather than later, but it was years before I taught anything. In 2007 the leader of the outreach ministry and dance school I was a part of said you are going to teach flags. While I knew that was a passion of mine and I always knew God would use me with the flags, I never thought I would teach them to anyone. But as I prepared in prayer and the word, God began to show me how he wanted me to teach it to others. I taught flags for about three years and the people loved it. But I still wasn’t doing what God put in my heart. The bible says in Habakkuk 2:3, “For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.” Teaching flags was just a part of it. I knew that God was going to send me out to teach others how to minister in dance. I knew I would show others how to express the Father’s heart in the dance and with worship tools. I know that sometimes visions come to past in stages. So when I began the Dancing For Him Ministries Online Dance School, it was the beginning of fulfilling the vision. This school has prepared me and equipped me for my next level in God. Another place, another level, new dimensions, greater hope and vision! I’m so excited by what’s to come! I guess I just had to tell it. I’ve posted the video of the song “Are You Ready Bride” and I hope you are blessed by it as I was.
