Dance for Joy


Sometimes I wanna

just stop everything …and dance

dance like King David

If only….I wonder if I would get any stares if I just all of a sudden busted out my cool dance moves in random places?  My best furry-friend does this all the time, and I must admit that I am a bit jealous… He isn’t worried about whether or not the people driving by are watching him, he doesn’t care who’s yard it is, or who might be standing outside watching.  He doesn’t care if we’re in a hurry, or what the temperature is outside.  When he feels like it, he just throws himself on the ground and dances- tongue out and all.

“In God’s presence I’ll dance all I want! He chose me over your father and the rest of our family and made me prince over God’s people, over Israel. Oh yes, I’ll dance to God’s glory—more recklessly even than this. And as far as I’m concerned . . . I’ll gladly look like a fool . . . but among these maids you’re so worried about, I’ll be honored no end.”  2 Samuel 6:21-22

Tomorrow is the celebration of Easter- He is Risen!  With each passing year, as I walk closer with Him- this day becomes even sweeter to celebrate!  I want to worship like King David- to dance with joy before my Heavenly Father!  To sing His praises and dance all day long…at church,  in my car, in the grocery store, walking through the neighborhood… no matter where I go, or who happens to be watching…

So if you catch a glimpse of me tomorrow and worry that I might embarrass myself with all my cool dance moves, not worries- I’m  dancing for joy because He is risen, indeed!!

Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with timbrel and harp.  

Psalm 149:3
