Everyday Confident Dancer
When our son Joey was four years old, he began taking dance classes in ballet, tap and jazz. He did this for six years but being the only boy dancer in a small town we knew there might be some teasing. I remember clearly in first grade when Joey told me what Bryce had to say about his dancing. “It’s stupid you’re in dancing. That’s for girls,” “What did you do Joey? “Oh, I just told him, ‘I’m sorry you have a problem with my dancing. Bryce. I guess I’ll pray for you.’ And then I walked away.”
“Genius,” I thought. I couldn’t have written a better script. I love that Joey had the security not to worry about what someone else thought. In the Bible in 2 Corinthians, we can read that God through Jesus took on our sin and was the sacrifice to pay for something we could never earn. When we receive Christ say; “I am the righteousness of God and we can walk in confidence knowing who God says we are and it’s good because of Him… everyday.
