Zumba to Thriller

I had the day off because of this miserable weather. My little pine tree just outside the front door is blanketed in ice and those cold pellets continue to fall from the sky with no signs of mercy in the near future.

I thought I would turn on some retro disco tunes and do a little Zumba dancing to thaw my happy little endorphins. Of course the very best of the 70s tantalized my nostalgic soul... and I boogied out my Latin-inspired fitness workout 'til I just couldn't boogie no more... zumbatomic at its best :)

As I danced to Thriller, my attention was drawn to the words. Understand, this song was at the top of the charts right at the peak of my high school career... I loved it and Michael Jackson. We all knew the Thriller dance and it was so much fun to frolic around the dance floor imitating creepy zombies. 

One of the lines I noted in this song was, "No one's going to save you from the beast that's about to strike!" My thoughts immediately turned to God and how comforting it is for me to know my God has me in the palm of His hand and I need not be afraid of the "beast." When Jesus died on the cross, He paid the price for my sins and saved me from the "beast."

Though it's dreary, cold, and downright horrifying outside, with the wind howling like a creepy ghoul from the set of the Thriller music video... I need not fear because greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4) and my precious God fills my soul with sunshine and warmth :)
