.. but until the gates are open,
I JUST WANNA FEEL THIS MOMENT!
Seriously feeling this moment right now! If you would have asked me two days ago how dance was going, I would have said that’s it’s going alright. I’ve been praying with faith that I can get these tricks and turns for dance down, and I’ve been trying to believe that God has everything under control (hard to do), but I came to a conclusion today that He really does! It’s hard to have faith sometimes when you don’t see improvement on something you’ve been working on. I had a private today with one of the girls on the pom squad and God definitely spoke through her to give me tips. I feel so much better…. like I can accomplish anything. I still have a long way to go, but with God by my side I CAN ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING!
Going back to slow improvement: It’s really a hard concept to grasp. For me, anyway. I have the mindset where I want to work on something for a week and see results right away. I’m way to hard on myself though. Sometimes I think, “why bother? I’m not getting any better”. but really, I am. Any amount of time spent practicing your goal is not wasted time! You might improve slowly to where you don’t notice but YOU ARE IMPROVING! DONT GIVE UP!
There’s a saying that I really really like. It goes, “Work as if it depends on you. Pray as if it depends on God.” Ultimately, I’ve realized that I can practice and practice all I want but I’m not going to improve unless I turn to God. This has always been super hard for me to do because I want to do things to where I depend on myself. You’re better off with God running the show, though!!
This week, I want to encourage everyone to pray faithfully to God about something you’re working on and see how much you improve with God by your side!!!! And share them with me, I love hearing encouraging stories about how God is helping everyone!
As for me, I will be missing my ballet class tomorrow because of an injured groin. ): Then I won’t be working on dance on Saturday. Hopefully this (unwilling) break will help in the long run.
Have a wonderful friday!
