Every person has a void in their lives. Maybe it is from a childhood event that was traumatic or maybe it is one created as an adult. We fill this void with many things. Some legal, often though, illegal.
If we are a person of faith, we can fill this void by constantly staying in the Word and walking hand in hand with Jesus. The deal is, so many aren't at a place where their faith is this constant. The voids remain.
The void screams feed me constantly, like the devil wanting our soul. We fill it with alcohol, drugs, exercising, food, shopping, crafting, Pinteresting, Facebooking, gambling, hoarding...you get the idea.
Today I was thinking about what is the one thing that we can fill the void with that is good for everyone. Life is not a one-size-fits-all, but I did think of something that goes hand-in-hand with emotions, and if we filled our void with it, we just might be better a better people.
When was the last time we cranked up the music and danced? Have we danced for Jesus? Have we danced and felt free? I want to have a freestyle dance day each week for rehabilitation of the void in the hearts of so many.
Dance with a paint brush, dance with a pen, dance in the theatre, dance in the band. Sing in the choir, sculpt with your hands, create anything, or do a tap-tap-tap!
The arts are our healing tool and we, as a society, have it on the top ladder rung where no one can reach them. Pray about this with me.
Let's look beyond the first window into what is good for our future!
