Monday Message: The Hokey Pokey!

Have you ever thought of your faith as a dance?

The sermon yesterday made a connection between faith and the hokey pokey.

"You put your right foot in
You put your right foot out
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about..."

Many times, we are all about living on faith!  We have our "right foot" completely in and we are shaking it all about! We are involved in the church, brightening the lives of those around us, and we experience daily closeness with God.
There are other times though when we have our "right foot" out.  We are not focused on the right things.  We let our worldly life takeover.  We know that we will put our foot back in soon, but maybe we aren't ready or don't want to at the moment.

"You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around..."

This is the moment in the song where you have some freedom.  My hokey pokey might be different from your hokey pokey.  We can dance a little differently.  The talents that God has given us are unique to us, and we need to discover the best ways to use those talents to serve and praise God!

"That's what it's all about!"

Truely, our life is all about serving our Creator! We owe him all of our talents and time.  Remember to live your life for Him every second of the day!

"Commit your way to the Lord" Psalm 37:5

This message was inspired by the sermon given at my church yesterday
(which just so happened to have been preached by my husband!)

Glad he did well. :) My dance is the tango (straight and narrow). Haha! Hope you have found your spiritual gift. I have, but just need to work on ways of using it to the best of my ability. Is your gift speaking in tongues, yeah, I thought so. JK. Happy Monday! LYLAS!

good message, I guess Hokey Pokey is better than Hanky Panky!
