Have you seen the musical, Billy Elliot? It's about an 11-year-old boy who loves to dance. During Billy's audition for the Royal Ballet, a judge asks, "What does it feel like when you're dancing?"

As Billy gets in touch with what's burning inside, he breaks out in song and dance:

"And then I feel a change, like a fire deep inside

Something bursting me wide open, impossible to hide

And suddenly I'm flying, flying like a bird

Like electricity, electricity

Sparks inside of me, and I'm free, I'm free."

Are we ready to get in touch with the passion in our lives? To experience the fire deep inside? Are we willing to allow the Holy Spirit to burst us wide open so that God's love is impossible to hide?

When we can truly say "yes," the electricity will spark inside of us, and we too, will be free!

Holy Spirit, help us feel your electricity.
