Just Dance

In a current bible study Julie, Tiffany and I are working on together, we are reading about The Ark of God. (2 Sam 6:1-11)*The Ark of God was Israels National Treasure. A place that the Lord Dwells* In part of our study we came across a scripture I have heard quoted many times. Either it be in songs, sermons or bible studies, we all have heard it. You know the one I am talking about, David dancing before the Lord.

2 Samuel 6:14

King James Version (KJV)
14 And David danced before the Lord with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod. (cloth/apron worn for religious ceremonies)

I especially love this verse because I LOVE worship. I love to watch the church congregation receive their blessings. I love the feeling I myself get during worship. Worship can be life changing...

When I was 13, I attended a church youth camp up in the mountains. TONS of kids went. From ages
7-18. I tell you was some of the best worship I had ever been involved in. I had the opportunity to be involved in the junior choir and we sang during the night services (every night). The worship was so powerful. It still gives me goose bumps thinking back at the swift move of God during worship.

Still to this day...I am a hot.mess.after.worship. Mascara drippings, half of my makeup gone, tear stains on my collar...a wreck. But that is my time to let it all go. Raise my hands...surrender it all to him.

Tiffany, Teryn and I attend the same church. There is this one gentlemen who is so AWESOME during worship service. His attitude is JUST DANCE! He spins, he leaps, he claps, he shouts, he fist pumps, he MOONWALKS. I mean this dude is all sorts of inspiring to me. When I see him during worship...I think of 2 Sam 6:14...and David danced before the lord with all his MIGHT.

If you think about it...we shout and dance at a concert, in the clubs, at weddings. We shout and dance for a touch down. We shout and dance over a winning lotto. (never happened for me, but hey some people are that lucky) Isn't he worthy of our praise?

In our study Beth Moore states:
"I'm not sure we will ever be released to fully "dance" before the Lord until we've learned to wail." 

Psalm 30:11-12

New International Version (NIV)
11 You turned my wailing into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
Lord my God, I will praise you forever.
In text, she is talking about David dancing before the Lord even after Uzzahs death. He may not of understood Gods reasoning for the circumstances he was facing, but through those circumstances he learned to understand God.

"I will celebrate and dance before the Lord,
whether or not my FAMILY does,
whether or not my FRIENDS do,
whether or not this NATION does, I will CELEBRATE!"
Just dance!
Everybody loves to dance.
