“And David was dancing before the Lord with all his might, and David was wearing a linen ephod.”
2 Samuel 6:13-15
“The most valuable thing the Psalms do for me is to express the same delight in God which made David dance.”
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. (And if you look up “klutz” in the dictionary you’ll see my picture, lol.) 😃
When I start to dance, you had better head for higher ground!
Even so, I do love the idea of dancing, but I’m like Bozo, the circus clown, only wearing 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’s the dance I’ll have with my Savior. There will be a day, in a place and time where He will call me home and I will learn to dance. I know it’ll be incredible, and it’s a day that I anticipate and honestly, I hope it comes soon.
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 wallflower, 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 would like to dance. And I see Him clearly on that day when I have no cane and am as graceful as I hope to be, and to be perfectly honest I won’t be watching you, (I’m sorry), but I will see only Jesus. I believe that my heart will beat exclusively for Him.
Jesus shed His blood for me. I belong to Him. He forgave all my sin and has given me eternal life. Knowing this fills me with such joy that my feet won’t stand still. He redeems me, and is this not a cause for a dance?
Some of you have been crippled—smashed up in the grinding gears of life. It’s hard to dance. I understand.
But I know that your life can be astonishingly full of grace also– you have endured so much, and yet Jesus intends to occupy your thoughts and vision. As His disciple, you’ll discover your special dance. And when you finally see Him, your heart will finally be free to spin and twirl.
He is the God of the Dance.
“Young women and young men, together with the elderly, will celebrate and dance because I will comfort them and turn their sorrow into happiness.”

Brought tears to my eyes. “To dance is to liberate your heart.” Oh to dance freely in His Love….
I’ve been praying for you, Bryan. I’ve fallen behind and didn’t know you had brain surgery. I hope you are doing better, and will keep praying. God bless you.
This reminded me of a limerick I wrote last year:
There once was a king who loved God
And he danced in a linen ephod
Then scoff did his wife
She envied his life
And his joy she forever thought odd
I’m not a dancer at all, but I’ve thought learning how to walk in the Holy Spirit is like learning how to dance (i.e. maybe learning the Tango?). At first, I step on His toes a lot. And I still do.
