Five Minute Friday.
There are two focuses on dance. Ourselves, or the One who dances over us. I love to watch talented dancers perform their skill with grace and athletic gifting! Though I love dancing, I'm not as graceful or talented as many I have seen. Still, when I offer my dance to God in worship, He delights in it. Why? Because it's a gift. From me. To Him.
So, I've got two different songs/videos for you tonight. If you need a quiet moment to soak in His amazing love for you, then watch this one. The first line is "You dance over me while I am unaware. You sing all around and I never hear a sound."
If you've been burdened and you need to be lifted up and break free and dance? Then this is the one for you! (Shackles by Mary Mary)
And finally, if you can handle a little country music, here's LeAnn Womack. "I hope you dance."
You see, God truly rejoices over us with singing.
The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”(Zephaniah 3:17)
"They will come home and sing songs of joy on the heights of Jerusalem.
They will be radiant because of the Lord’s good gifts—
the abundant crops of grain, new wine, and olive oil,
and the healthy flocks and herds.
Their life will be like a watered garden,
and all their sorrows will be gone.
13 The young women will dance for joy,
and the men—old and young—will join in the celebration.
I will turn their mourning into joy.
I will comfort them and exchange their sorrow for rejoicing.
14 The priests will enjoy abundance,
and my people will feast on my good gifts. I, the Lord, have spoken!” (Jeremiah 31:12-14 NLT)
Heaven is just around the corner. Don't keep it to yourself! :)
