Dancing in the valleys and the complacency trap.

A blip. My life here on earth in comparison to eternity.

And yet my complaints seem to echo as I sit and wallow in my misery, am pushed down by my burdens and am content in being a victim. I complain about how the pain seems to weigh me down, so that I cannot physically rise above it… because there is comfort in brokenness.

However, I am coming to the realisation that because of Jesus, that misery, that brokenness is also just a blip. And in reality, true comfort is not found in brokenness, complacency is found in brokenness, and comfort is found in the arms of my King.

Therefore I have decided to take my hurt, and those valley seasons and use them. Give them to Jesus. I throw off the shackles of negativity, of bad memories and of pain, and receive the joy and peace that can only be found in Him.

Because that’s the only thing I can give to Him here, in this tiny fragment of time- life – that I cannot give to Him in eternity. 

So my friends, today, I encourage you, give Him your pain. Turn the valley season into surrender. There is beauty in taking your hurt and worshiping anyway- Yadah praise- running into the welcoming arms of a Father who yearns for His child to give Him their everything, so that they can experience freedom. Learn to dance in the midst of failure, in the “lows” and you’ll be shocked to see that the crushing weight of being a victim will lift off of you, so that you can dance freely and lightly in the presence of the one who carried your burdens on the cross x

“Then he broke through and transformed all my wailing into a whirling dance of ecstatic praise! He has torn the veil and lifted from me the sad heaviness of mourning. He wrapped me in the glory garments of gladness.”  – Psalm 30:11 (TPT)
