“14 And David was dancing before the Lord with all his might, and David was wearing a linen ephod.”
2 Samuel 6:13-15
When I start to dance, you had better head for higher ground! I am without question the world’s worst and the clumsiest of all. And since my brain surgery it has gotten even worse. I need to use a cane now, because of all that. (If you look up “klutz” in the dictionary you’ll see my picture lol.) Even so, I do love the idea of dancing, but I’m like Bozo, the circus clown on roller-skates. I lurch from side-to-side and I’m always on the verge of falling on someone’s lap. Which is a real hoot!
But there is just one dance that I am waiting for. It is the dance I will have with my Savior. There will be a day, in a place and time where He will call me and I will dance. It will be remarkable for me, and its a day that I anticipate and hope it comes soon. (I have been practicing, lol.)
To dance is to liberate your heart. You must cancel out all self-consciousness. If you are self-aware, you will never enter into the joy and wonder of the dance. You will be a perpetual wall-flower, living only on the edges. And, you will be very sad. It seems you must dance in your heart, before you can ever dance with your feet.
I desperately want to dance. I see Him clearly on that day when I have no cane, and am as graceful as I hope to be. I will not be watching you, (sorry) but I will see only Him. I believe that my heart will beat exclusively for Him.
Some of you have been crippled; smashed in the awful gears of life. But I also know that your life can be also astonishingly full of grace– you have endured so much, and yet Jesus intends to occupy your thoughts and vision. When I am with Him, my heart will finally be free to dance. You will find Him to be the “Dancing Lord.’
“Young women and young men, together with the elderly, will celebrate and dance, because I will comfort them and turn their sorrow into happiness.”
