dancing toward God.

“Life is a dance toward God, I begin to think. And the dance is not so graceful as we might want. While we glide & swing our practiced sway, God crowds our feet, bumps our toes & scuffs our shoes. So we learn to dance with the One who made us. And it’s a difficult dance to learn, because its steps are foreign.” – Donald Miller

My dance has not been graceful and there are times where I think it may never be…and that’s ok. // There are times when I think: I’m not sick but I’m not well. I’m broken hurting and human and I am loved and valued and worth fighting for. I will keep dancing toward God. I will be transparent about my struggles and my desire to get the help I need. I won’t try to make it less than it is by saying I’m fine and I won’t sweep it under the rug in shame. I want to be emotionally healthy and so I will keep awkwardly dancing toward God and may He ever keep leading me around the dance floor.
