I love dancing in my room when it's just me and God. I can be silly and wild and free...I can just be me.
Today I put on some of my favorite Spanish worship music (hey, no one can write worship/praise music like Spanish speakers can - it's just AMAZING how full of joy and victory they are! Everything is a declaration of war over all that is evil and a cry for the tangible glorious and holy presence of God), and I just danced and danced.
It really is one of my favorite ways to worship God. And I think he rather enjoys it. I like thinking about how I have an audience of one - and I can just FEEL him smiling over me and laughing at my antics. He enjoys me. I've convinced of it. I don't mean that in a stuck-up sort of way. I think he enjoys all of us! We have to recognize that diminishing who we are in Christ is just false humility. I am a daughter of the Most High God, of the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, and the Creator of the Universe. He delights in me and I delight in him! We make each other laugh! I would never be embarrassed about declaring my earthly father's love for me, so why should I not say with great confidence that my Heavenly father has even MORE love for me than that?
Anyway - so I danced. And I worshiped. And I had a great time. And I'm going to dance my way further into the heart of God.
I also had this thought that it would be really great to make a dance/exercise video using radical awesome praise songs about how glorious and mighty God is. Wouldn't that be a great start to your morning? To get up and jump around like crazy? And burn calories doing it, jump-starting your system for the day? Fit for life, and fit for Jesus? Ha...I could call it that... "Fit body, Fit soul, Fit for Destiny". :-) I'll think on that one..
