Just Keep on Dancin’

Yesterday, Sarai was playing a song from Katy Perry called ”Teary Eyes.” It’s quite an upbeat song, and therefore, obviously, we started dancing and laughing together. Yet, as I turned to look at her, I could see just pure joy as she freely moved with the music

During the Jewish Festivals, it is custom for people to dance, with joy, through remembrance of what God has done for His people

These are times of expression of gratitude from slavery into freedom; to remember their journey from captivity, to being released, and therefore, we read about these times that the Israelites still celebrate to this day

God reminded me of King David freely dancing in the streets as the Ark of the Lord was carried. This was not the norm and was frowned upon from David’s wife, and yet, David did not care…for he was joyful

Friends, there have been times when the tears won’t stop rolling down my cheeks, but there is an exchange which occurs when I have poured my heart out to the Lord, and He exchanged my mourning for His joy

There is always something to be thankful for. An opportunity to praise God for regarding His goodness within our lives. Now sometimes we might not see what God is doing within this current season, yet, the one thing that we can always dance before the Lord regarding, is the freedom we find through Christ

Therefore, today, you might feel broken under the weight of it all, but I encourage you to put on some music and simply keep on dancing with those teary eyes because tonight, you might be mourning, but in the morning there will be shouts of praise as God brings comforts to your soul

“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.”

Jeremiah 31:13
