Do You Dance?
“Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing before the Lord with all his might” (2 Samuel 6:14 NIV).
Never has there been a time that I have not wanted to move to music. I love to let my body find its release as it hears the beat.
But in church when I grew up and as a young mom it was expected that we would maintain “decorum”. Not until 2000 when I attended my first contemporary service did I feel allowed to be ME – to worship fully my way.
I may be one of the very few in my small country church to dance, clap and raise my hands but I do it freely – knowing I am praising God the way I need to.
David danced for joy – and so do
I dance to show God how pleased I am that He made me – to say how much I love Him.
Do you dance in church to show your joy? I am not saying all people have to worship this way. But if you want to I think you should be able to do so in freedom.
If you do not worship this way, do you accept those who want to be free to worship this way?
I would love to hear your comments.
I am linking to the Gypsy Mama again this week. The word this week is DANCE.
