Dancing in the Rain LLC is committed to seek truth so that we might share God’s wisdom with employees to help shed light on their individual paths. Specifically, we pray that we can share practical information so that the light of Jesus would be shown in every cubicle, retail store, assembly line, and workplace throughout the United States and throughout the world. Through authorship, speaking, and coaching, we strive to teach workers the tools they need to not only be content, but have an abundance of peace and joy to share with those around them. We hope to build up leaders that are willing to step out in faith, and through strategic plans, prayers, and discipline, work in wise way that will allow them to fulfill their God given purpose on this earth no matter their profession.
Dancing in the Rain LLC. Was created because in my twenties, I would go to church on Sunday and I vividly remember sitting there feeling so connected to God and being filled with the Holy Spirit. I was singing out praising God for all he had done, and truly meant it when I sang, “I surrender all”. Yet, Monday morning would come, the world flooded in, and I dreaded getting out of bed. Sunday was a distant memory, and Monday meant a full week of a life filled with obligations, to do lists, and bumper to bumper traffic! I tried making changes; I got married, I got divorced, I went to college, I quit college ( I did this several times), I moved away from the traffic, I changed jobs, and each time it worked for a little while but the joy and the peace was very sporadic. Why was that connection I felt on Sunday’s broken by Monday?
After a couple of decades, I was finally able to grasp some of what the Apostle Paul said when he said in Philippians 4:12-13, “I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” I haven’t mastered it yet, but I can honestly say I have spent years at different jobs feeling overwhelmed, burdened and miserable and in contrast I have spent years at jobs where the circumstances were unfair, burdensome, and frustrating, and yet, I was at peace and filled with joy each day. The latter is much preferable!
During those tough circumstances, it was not will power that got me through. Instead it was an overflow and abundance of God’s peace and joy poured into me. I was not just content; I had so much joy and peace, I was able to pour out the leftovers and bless others. As that is what fulfills our purpose here on earth, to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:37-39
