Reflections for the New Year

Being a Christian Dancer doesn’t just mean I dance to Christian music, but rather that I have given every part of my life to Christ. And when I move, each movement is in glorification of Him. My breath is constantly aware of His giving of life. My thoughts are completely absorbed with Him, His nature, His works, His excellence, His mercy, and also His wrath. Being a Christian Dancer means I don’t impress others with me in the dance, but impress them with the God in me.

2nd Performance!!!

Ok. So before we even get to my performance, I need to say….there was a problem. A technical difficulty with the music. If you read about my first performance, you know that this happened before. This time I wasn’t handling the music. This reoccurring theme…must stop. Of course, the enemies of God’s praise doesn’t want me to dance, but Glory to God I will press through!

This was the first time I danced with a praise garment and it was wonderful! Although the sound system amplified the music and muted the singing, I hoped that my dance displayed the meaning effectively. This performance came about within three days:

1. got the call on day 1 and narrowed down choice to 2 songs

2. picked one song and worked on understanding meaningΒ  and putting together the foundation of the choreography

3. changed the song 2x and went back the original song chosen, practiced dance 5x

DAY OF DANCE. practiced 5x and prayed…this is the result:

I really appreciate Bibleway’s Sister Butler for this opportunity and the praise robe, Sister Deidre for praying with me right before I danced, and the Sister who recorded this for me. I Love You, lovely ladies!! This experience taught me that you really should be prepared AT ALL TIMES, because you don’t always know when you’ll get a phone call to minister. But when you do get that call you have to be ready, since you don’t want to tell God you couldn’t complete an assignment because you didn’t have enough time…I bet Simon Peter wasn’t expecting God to show up in his fishing business when He told him to cast the net on the other side and finally caught so many fish that the net broke! (Luke 5:1-10)
