Dance before the Lord with all your might
Blog reader Pamela sent in this incredible tap dancing sequence:
Well worth the YouTube download time, check it out. I’ve been watching it over and over this morning.
What is there about dance? I contra danced last night, and danced for hours at my friends’ wedding recently. I love the twirling and the jumping and the music and the camaraderie. I love watching how others interpret the music and the good, clean fun of the thing.
David in the Bible did a lot of dancing. I relate to David on many levels, not the least of which is dance. Not everyone was happy with him for it, yet he kept on dancing. To him, it was a form of praise.
At one point, the Bible says, “And David danced before the Lord with all his might” (II Samuel). Maybe that’s what I love about it. Dancing is 100%. You don’t want to be timid or hesitant or doubtful. You want to throw yourself into it completely, keeping all your wits about you yet letting the rhythm and the movement take you forward.
I waltzed with a gentleman last night who kept us moving smoothly through an ever-shifting crowd of couples. Step by step we glided across the floor, in harmony not only with each other but with the other dancers.
I love that 100% quality, and am realizing today that I approach a lot of life that way. Give it everything you’ve got, hold nothing back. If you’re going to do something, do it with all your might.
With all your might. I love that thought for today!
