abandonment = joy

I watch you as you focus and concentrate. As you try your best to copy your teacher.
And then, as you spin and twirl I see it
You are free and your freedom is your joy.

You aren’t focused on those around you.
You aren’t bothered by the image of yourself in the mirror.
You are just amazed and proud of the way you can make your body move gracefully, like those ballerinas that you see. As you move, you see yourself moving just as gracefully as them.

May I seek to live my days, utterly abandoned to His love.
Glorifying Him
Enjoying Him
and resting in the beauty of the Covenant that He has made with me.

For you are a holy people to the LORD your God; the LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth. The LORD did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; but because the LORD loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers, the LORD has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. “Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments
Deuteronomy 7:6-9
