Have you ever sat and watched a dancer and been in complete awe of their ability to move so perfectly to the rhythm of the music? Their movements seem effortless and their timing perfect. They look poised, yet you know they are giving it everything they have. There is such harmony that it’s almost as if the composer wrote the music with the dancer in mind.
Dancing in many ways is a lot like life. There are times of joy and energy, but there are also times of sadness and emotion. Just like dancing, life requires us to give everything in order to succeed. We have to put time and effort into everything we do. At all times we are walking a tightrope, hoping not to lose our timing or our step.
For a dancer nothing can be worse than getting out of sync with the music. Not only will it distract the dancer but it will also have a direct effect on the dance itself. No matter how hard you try, once you have lost your step it is almost impossible to get it back.
What if we have never been ‘in sync’ in life? What if we have missed a beat and have no way of getting back? Is it possible for us to have been living a life completely out of sync?
A life within which we have never experienced true happiness or freedom, no matter what we’ve done?
Surely there must be something we can do?
Well, the answer is actually no, there is really nothing we can do. Well, that is, there is nothing that we can do that God hasn’t already done! You see, the reason we are out of sync is because we have forgotten who God is. We have decided to live a life for ourselves, focused on what we can achieve on our own, but it’s those very things that have led us to this place. Luckily for us that’s where grace comes in. Grace brings us back into sync with God Himself, whereby He not only forgives us for what we have done, but He accepts us for who we are!
Grace is a gift given freely, even though we don’t deserve it. All that is required is that we accept it. No matter who you are or what you have done, there is grace for you. God wants to have a relationship with you. He wants to put your life back together and unlike the dancer out of time, you’ll no longer need to chase the beat. God is the composer of the music and if you choose to live in his grace, your life will always be in His perfect time.
