JUST SING! Asking for Supernatural Power

You have turned my sorrow into joyful dancing.No longer am I sad and wearing sackcloth. I thank you from my heart, and I will never stop singing your praises, My LORD and my God. (Psalm 30:11-12)

It’s 4:40pm at the Gold-Franco house. Not everyday is like today. Sometimes the grueling schedule of having a baby girl can be tiring. Sometimes she just cries and wants to be held and I have to put down anything else that seems important temporarily.

But today, I ask God to help me & suddenly, this JOY COMES OVER ME and I feel like a child again. Bella tickles my toes and reaches towards my face to kiss me saying, "MMMMMMMMMMWA!" Sweet. Her hugs and kisses "melt me" and I realize there is nothing on my mind that God can't handle for me. We STOP everything, run to the playroom, blast the music, sing, dance, and MAKE MUSIC TOGETHER!!!

Shaking the shakers in the air, Bella joins in by clicking her sticks. A few seconds later I hand her the my two blocks showing her the awesome rhythm they make. Then, the harmonica makes its sounds and before you know it, Bella and I are marching around the room singing and playing. I say to myself, “I cant believe I am marching around the room with a sinus infection and a headache the size of Brooklyn!" I am having a ball and my neighbors think I am crazy but I think I got it made.

Supernatural strength comes over me. This is the joy of the Lord which gives me strength!

12-STEP / OVER-COMER’S PERSCPECTIVE:

I am learning to ASK GOD FOR STRENGTH. I need His SUPERNATURAL Power.

I remove "Stinkin Thinkin" by filling my mind with hopeful words from the Lord rather than what I say or think. When I read the proverbs and psalms or scriptures everyday, the words I read refresh me like a fountain pouring over me. The Word of God is medicine to my soul. I sit in bed with my coffee and my Bible. Without it, I tire, I have compassion fatigue and nothing within me sparkles with joy.

JEWISH AND MESSIANIC SPIN:

I’m reminded of what I love most about my Jewish culture. When you are Jewish, it’s unheard of to have a celebration without a song and a dance. Davidic dancing, or dancing in a circle is something we do for fun and rejoicing.

We sing and dance at weddings and at Shabbat Service on Saturdays. It is tasteful dancing, praising the creator of the universe and giving thanks. (To check out FREE or affordable Israeli dance classes in your area, check out http://www.israelidance.com)

Another words, Though there are many bills to pay and miracles that I am awaiting, I forget all my worries and cares and remember what it means to come to the Lord like a child. There's a time for everything. And sometimes, it's the time to sing and dance! Let’s learn to sing and dance and thank God even when things are not perfect.

LET'S PRAY:

Lord, I ask you for strength. Give me a heart of gratitude. Help me to sing and dance like a child. Let me experience your joy!!! I need your help, Hashem. I love you. Amen.
