Many years she had searched longingly for the one who would fill the void that filled her heart. Her emptiness inside had cried out to her and had ached for so much more. She went through relationships with men seeking the one who would feed her soul. There had been so many years wasted and so many tears shed.
She closed her eyes and reached up high, holding the pose as she felt her body reach toward Him. Her inner peace and strength felt strong as she gave her body as a sacrifice of worship. How many times had she danced for Him. Not enough, she thought.
She remembered the nights in dance clubs, wearing revealing clothing that drew attention to her as she danced to the beat of the music. She felt passionate, alive, and powerful when she danced. She found men loved to watch women that were secure with their sexuality. She was. She had embraced the attentive eyes and moved seductively.
Her hero gave his life for her so she could be forgiven. A beautiful gift had been given to her and she had abused it for so long. Now, she could use if for His glory, to praise him with her body, mind, and soul.
The song ended and a small tear crept out from the corner of her eye. She was so in love. There was only one man who could've sacrificed himself fully and completely for her and he did it willingly without resistence. He gave His life because He loved her before He even knew her. What better hero to have than a Savior, she thought as she closed her eyes and felt the comfort of His love. She now had a passion for Him, and the power to give her life to the one who saved her, her one and only true hero.
