I really like this saying because I enjoy both dancing and music. Taking these words literally, it means that dancers can choose how they’re going to dance to the music they are given. Are they going to join the crowd to fit in, or are they going to stand out by being different? However, this quote isn’t just for dancers; it’s for those who can’t always choose their own music in life. By this, I mean those whose lives aren’t one grand ball – those who can’t always be in control of choosing what comes along with the “life bundle.”
Like the quote says, “we can choose how we dance. . .” This viewpoint opens a new window for us. In each of our lives, we are given opportunities to choose how we “dance.” Are we going to follow along and do what everyone else does or will we do what God wants us to do? As Christians, the answer may seem clear in this case, but when the time arrives to make that decision, it can be difficult. Are we going to laugh at a bad word someone says when we’re with friends just to fit in? Are we going to join the group to see a horror film at the movies just to be not left out?
- Let’s be the ones who are different!
- Let’s be the ones who dance like the Princesses (and Princes) of the King!
- Let’s be the ones who stand out from the rest of the world!
If we don’t, it will be hard for others to see the difference between us and the crowd.
When life plays us a song, we get to choose how we dance to it – and live our lives to it. Will you choose to go with the flow, or sail down your own stream with a smile, ready to explain what makes you so different when asked?
“But sanctify the Lord God in your heart: and be ye ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:” 1st Peter 3:15 KJV
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2 KJV
Are you fond of this quote?
Do you love to dance?
What is something that we could do differently in life that would make us stand out for Him?
