We were going about our day in our normal fashion, the sun was shinning, the boys were at work and school and the girls were busy at home. I was pottering around the house listening to music and my little girl was sitting on the floor surrounded by toys immersed in an imaginary game when the song just let it happen started playing.
As soon as the song started to play my little girl immediately jumped up and started dancing. The soft sweet music had captured her attention and she began to sway in time with the music and then began spinning and twirling. I stopped what I was doing to watch her. The song was singing out you’re full of life now, you’re full of passion, that’s how He made you, just let it happen. I realized that I was watching these words being played out in my sweet little ballerina.
My little girl loves to dance, she skips through life with joy on her face and joy in her heart. She was created to dance and to enjoy life. She is full of passion and she is full of life and she just lets it happen, she does not think about it, she just gets up and dances.
Do you remember the song Let it go from the Disney movie Frozen? I believe it has been a prophetic song for the past few years. Although it is a song from a children’s movie it has been resonating with so many people, I cant tell you how many times I have heard the phrase let it go quoted. I think it was a prophetic message for all of us that we just need to let some stuff go.
I believe that God has called to us to let it go and now He is calling us to be a light and to come alive.
The lyrics from the song just let it happen, the song that my little girl was dancing to, are this…
You’re full of life now
You’re full of passion
That’s how He made you
Just let it happenAnd He calls each one of us
By our names, to come away
And He whispers to your heart
To let it go and to be a light, come aliveSo take me back,
back to the beginning
When I was young
Running through the fields with You
This song encapsulates the next stage for us, the next thing that God wants us to do. He wants us to let go of all the things that are holding us down and holding us back from being the person that He has created us to be. To let go of all the things that bring us fear and anxiety. To let go of all the things that cause us to be bitter and angry. To let go of past hurts and pain and to begin to come alive again.
He is calling each one of us by name to come away with Him. To go into our secret place, the time and space that we set aside to just be with the Lord and there He whispers to our heart. There He tells us who we really are, loved, redeemed, set free, passionate and full of life.
It is in our secret place where we can discover how to let all our stuff go and how to be ourselves and to come alive again. We were not created to be walking around with all these things weighing us down. We need to let them all go and start to live fully alive, fully awake, passionate and free.
We need to live like my little dancing girl, moving through life with joy, knowing who we were created to be and living that way, being full of passion, full of life and just letting it all happen. We don’t think about it, we just get up and dance.
