Perfect Imperfections

If we think that we have mastered movement ministry, we must remember that the only true Master is Jesus. There may be times when we feel as though our dance is not good enough, or that we somehow disappointed the Lord with our offering of movement. We may feel that our own shortcomings hinder us from giving God our best. Let us silence the false accusations of the enemy, and listen to the Word of the Lord.

If we have a tendu that is not an example of proper form, remember that He is Perfect. When our pirouettes spin out of line, we know that God is in control. If there are moments that we forget the choreography when dancing, we remember that He has not forgotten us. Our confidence is in Him, and not in ourselves.

Whatever our physical limitations may be, we are qualified to perform the work that the Lord has given our hands (and feet) to do. If there are areas in which we can improve, we must commit ourselves to gaining the skills needed to operate at our most optimal levels. There is no condenmation for us. Let us allow His perfect will to be done in our lives and ministries.

Psalm 138:8 (King James Version)
The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: Thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of Thine own hands.

2 Corinthians 4:7 (NKJV)
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

Hebrews 13:20-21 (King James Version)
Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Ephesians 4:12 (King James Version)
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ
