|My Victory Dance|
When life throws you a curve ball, don't worry, God's got your back. You've got to know that like Joseph, you can rise above mean people and overcome through faith in the one who sets the moon and the stars in place.I may have been elated by hearing her read such a complex series of words, but it got even better!
She THEN said:
This reminds me of the song Stars by Skillet.
Yes. Not only did she make an AMAZING connection between what she was reading and the music she listens to, but she displayed her Panhead-ness in her connection.
Okay, all "head-banging" music jokes aside, I was OVER THE MOON that she realized she had the power to DIS-EMPOWER the mean people of the world by turning to the God who created her and also created the Universe and all that is within it. And NOW, this song will remind her of that because she made the connection from her devotional to the lyrics.
I had a taste of SUCCESS in my goal to equip my daughter with tools she needs to help calm her anxious heart.So, today I ask you, how do you define SUCCESS in your life? Will you be looking back as King Solomon did and ask yourself, "Why did I spend so much time doing THAT? Why did I continue chasing after the wind?"
I still struggle, and I always will, at keeping my pride in check and knowing that the condition of my heart is what I want it to be when I meet Jesus face to face. But, in that moment yesterday with my daughter, I had to do a little victory dance because THAT was SUCCESS for me, right there in that moment.
Pray: Father God, this world can bombard us with temporary dreams and false idols. Help us to take time with you in which we can truly see how you will measure our success when we meet you face to face. If you came back today and took us home with you, would we hear you say, "Well done good and faithful servant?" If not, then speak to our heart right now and show us Your Will. Amen.
