Prayer is similar to a dance between two people.
Each partner must be in tune with the other in order for the dance to flow. God is naturally in tune with you. Your goal is to become one with Him.
At first the dance is awkward and forced. It isn't particularly graceful or meaningful.
As time goes by, the partners become more at ease with each other. The movements begin to ebb and flow more naturally and eventually, great effort is no longer required.
As you become more comfortable with your time with God, you will be able to let Him lead you. Your time together will evolve into a peaceful exchange of love. Something that you look forward to every day. In order for this to occur, you have to get out on the dance floor.
Make time for prayer today.
Are you feeling trapped?
Are you trying to please other people,
attempting to be
the person that you think someone else
wants you to be?
Have you locked away a part of yourself so that someone else can't see who you really are because of a fear of being rejected or unloved?
Often, we look at ourselves through the eyes of another person and cringe with self-doubt and discouragement. Unlock those places of your heart that hold your fears and self-condemnation. Ask Jesus to help you see yourself through His eyes. You will marvel at how beautiful you are!
