Understanding and breathing through life in God's grace.
This week has been a strange one for me. It felt like I was being tossed around in an unstable whirlwind of emotions and thoughts, experiencing feelings that scared me and anger that made me hate so much.
And yet at the same time I felt like I needed to lean more on God. That I needed to do what I need to do in His will. That all things work out in His time, and my part is to fight in prayer even when I'm past my natural breaking point.
God's timing is amazing because it's all these things that I've felt, seen, heard and experienced that I can pour it out into this message of a dance I've started to work on. We'll see where God takes it I guess <3
An inspiration video that got me thinking of what I just wrote:
"Hello! This is my choreography to Nneka's "Heartbeat." The subject matter is something that has been on my heart for awhile now, something that God continues to remind me of and I feel pushed to confront it in many ways, dance being one. The main point of this video is to put something out there. Something that we might not think about daily that we probably should. Something that we probably brush aside or forget about easily that we shouldn't. I firmly believe that if you are someone who is given so much that you have a responsibility to give, whether it be your time, your money, your care, your help, or your love. That depends on what God puts on your heart. I also believe in the power of unity and in our generation to come together to love those who suffer. Each of us have different paths, but we must pursue them for the right motives and for the benefit of not only ourselves. A selfish life doesn't have the impact it's meant to. A huge thank you to Keone Madrid, Jillian Meyers, Dana Wilson, and Shaun Evaristo for helping me make this happen. Also thank you to Daniel Lee Spur from Who Cares!? crew in Hannover, Germany for giving me this song. And of course, all glory to my Lord, thank you for dance and for your love." - Mariel Martin
