He is Not Going Anywhere

Dance… It brought freedom to both my body and soul. It was the perfection that inspired me. Calling me to attempt combinations repetitively until perfected and even then more perfection was to reached.

Yet one day, dance was snatched from my hands and with it, my dreams. There are moments that even now, I close my eyes and imagine the sensation of a plie’s at the barre or performing a grande jete across my studio’s blackened floors.

This morning I ran across a video by Casting Crowns entitled, “Oh My Soul.” Within this song, a beautiful dancer performs a dance along with the lyrics. Amazingly, the song contains the declaration of my soul as I have journeyed through losing my lifestyle of dance. It was encouraging to hear this song play on repeat throughout my day.

Here are the lyrics to one of my new top favorite songs. Enjoy and know that whatever trials you are trudging through, you are not alone.

Oh, my soul
Oh, how you worry
Oh, how you’re weary, from fearing you lost control
This was the one thing, you didn’t see coming
And no one would blame you, though
If you cried in private
If you tried to hide it away, so no one knows
No one will see, if you stop believing

Oh, my soul
You are not alone
There’s a place where fear has to face the God you know
One more day, He will make a way
Let Him show you how, you can lay this down
‘Cause you’re not alone

Here and now
You can be honest
I won’t try to promise that someday it all works out
‘Cause this is the valley
And even now, He is breathing on your dry bones
And there will be dancing
There will be beauty where beauty was ash and stone
This much I know

Oh, my soul
You are not alone
There’s a place where fear has to face the God you know
One more day, He will make a way
Let Him show you how, you can lay this down

I’m not strong enough, I can’t take anymore
(You can lay it down, you can lay it down)
And my shipwrecked faith will never get me to shore
(You can lay it down, you can lay it down)
Can He find me here
Can He keep me from going under

Oh, my soul
You’re not alone
There’s a place where fear has to face the God you know
One more day, He will make a way
Let Him show you how, you can lay this down
‘Cause you’re not alone
Oh, my soul, you’re not alone
