The Depths of My Soul

What is on the inside of us will be revealed. Although some may try to mask the true essence of themselves beneath a beautiful garment or advanced technique, those that truly love the Lord cannot hide it. For those who are pretending to love Him (and there are many), the truth will be evident.

When we present our bodies to Him through movement, we must constantly aim to walk in truth. We gain this by regularly studying the Word of the Lord and practicing His commandments. This will help in the creation of choreography that accurately depicts the Word visually and spiritually.

We are in a position to be greatly used by Him if we allow the Lord to guide each and every step. The best way to teach others to passionately love the Lord is to show them by example. We are living demonstrations of the power of the Word of God.

Take a few moments to do some spiritual inventory:

What are others saying about your ministry?

Is this observation consistent?

Are there some areas that you know need to be corrected?

Are you known more for your "superstar" demands or for your servanthood?

Do you ever find yourself "faking it" until you feel it?

What is your appetite for the Word of the Lord and for prayer?

Deuteronomy 6:5 (NKJV)
"You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength."
