Free People Dance
I DO NOT LIKE DRY CHURCH SERVICES…AT ALL!
After all, Jesus DID GET UP from the grave so I am not in mourning.
Every Sunday I go to celebrate the fact that He is resurrected.
His death and His resurrection made my freedom possible!
I am on my way to heaven and I figure that is more than enough reason for me to lose my mind in worship… EVERY SUNDAY!
To really worship and praise, you must be willing to lose your mind.
Lose composure, lose your reputation, let the tears flow, open your mouth with praise, move your feet and DANCE!
Go ahead look at me as if I am crazy, but you must understand that my dance is one of triumph!
My dance is warfare in motion, every move of my feet is a declaration to the enemy that He no longer has me. I AM FREE!
AND INDEED FREE PEOPLE DANCE.
The next time you are in worship and you are overwhelmed with God’s presence I want to encourage you to not hold back. Do not focus on who is around you, instead focus on what God has done for you and enter the worship zone. Lift your hands as a sign of surrender, open your mouth uttering thanksgiving, move your feet and DANCE. Yes it may be awkward at first but you do it enough and you become addicted. You didn’t know? Freedom is addictive. Are you free? Free enough to dance?
Psalm 149:3 NLT
Praise his name with dancing, accompanied by tambourine and harp.
2 Samuel 6:14 (NLT)
And David danced before the Lord with all his might…”
