More Divine Dance

More of my notes from...

The Divine Dance By: Shannon Kubiak Primicerio

"Romans 12:1-2 tells us to not be conformed (shaped, molded) into the image of this world but to renew our minds so that we can find God's perfect will."

"You are to worship God so boldly that the whole world will want to worship God. It's not about high jumps. It's not about self glory. It's not even about you. It's not about the dancer; it's about the dance. It's about the story that God has written so the world might know Him.

Mathew 16:26 says " What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul?"- The answer is none.

Something I also read recently in my devotional book, had something interesting about this verse: "Over 200 years ago, the tomb of great conqueror, Charlamagne, was opened. There was his body in a sitting position, clothed in the most elaborate of kingly garments, with a scepter in his bony hand. On his knee there lay a New Testament, with a cold lifeless finger pointing to Mark 8:36: "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"

"The woman who dances only for God will be different. She will be unlike anything the world has ever seen. She will be bold and daring, gentle, and caring-all at the same time. She will be you, but she will be more than you. She will be God in you - for the entire world to see. Enjoy the quiet time alone in the studio with God as you meditate on His Word and memorize His steps."

Psalm 100:3 "Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, we are His people, the sheep of His pasture." ~You can neither write your own story nor control how God writes it, but you can count on the fact that the end of the story will make all of the other chapters worth it. "

Elisabeth Elliot once said: "The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian makes me a different kind of woman." (Elisabeth Elliot, Let Me Be a Woman)

These notes come from the book shown above, The Divine Dance, which I highly recommend. The one quote (in red) is from God's Devotional Book for Teens.
