By no means am I a prude. I love to get out on a wedding dance floor and do the electric slide with a group of people. I've always enjoyed that. It's super fun and I can never wipe that goofy grin off my face afterwards. That's why I'm hesitant to write this post. I know that Zumba is all the rage these days. I almost feel pressured by the mob of my peers.
I've taken two Zumba classes and each time it just hasn't resonated well with my spirit. My gut. His Spirit within me. He's just not at home in me afterwards. That's for me, and it may not be that way for you. Don't go cancel your Zumba class just because it doesn't resonate with me. His Spirit, in me. I know a lot of godly ladies who get their Zumba on.
What I love about Zumba:
- Hello, it's a super hard workout!
- I love doing moves all together with a bunch of girls.
- I do love a lot of the moves and dances.
- I sweat like crazy.
- I love hanging out with a bunch of friends.
What I don't love about Zumba:
- A lot of the dirty music.
- All those provocative, hip shaking, pelvic thrusting, chest popping moves.
- The way I feel almost dirty afterwards.
This post isn't written because I think you should or shouldn't partake in a Zumba class. This post is more on a lesson I'm continually learning: If the Holy Spirit isn't at home in YOU... doing, or watching, or saying something... don't fight it, just be obedient and you will be at peace with your decision.
The Holy Spirit is a precious gift to the child of God that convicts the heart of personal sin. Don't grieve Him, for He lives within you if you know Him as personal Savior. "Ephesians 4:30: And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption."
