Chapter One

DANCE!

In the beginning, God sang everything into being—for the joy of it!—and set the whole universe dancing!

God was in the center, at the heart of everything.

Like the dance of the planets before the sun—turning, spinning, circling, wheeling, revolving, orbiting around and around—God made everything in his world and in his universe and in his children's hearts to center around him—in a wonderful Dance of Joy!

It's the Dance you were born for. Dance!

"The morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy." Job 38:7 (KJV)

THREE SMALL WORDS

"[Treasure] these words of mine in your heart and in your soul." Deuteronomy 11:18 (ESV)

What words does God want you to treasure in the deepest part of you?

"Be good"? "Do it better"? "Try harder"? are those the words God wrote in the Bible for us, to rescue and free us?

No. Those words only show us what we can't do.

The words God wants us to remember are just three small ones: "I love you!"

They are the words that stop the Terrible Lie that Satan whispered to eve in the garden: "God doesn't love you!" They are the words that heal the poison in our hearts that stops us from trusting God.

They are the words that Jesus came to tell us with his whole life.

They are the words he died to prove.

What words will you treasure today?
