Worshipping in spirit and truth has more to do with a mindset, an attitude and a lifestyle more than external rituals. The reality (truth)of who the Father is causes the deepest part of who I am in Him (my spirit man) to connect!!! The deepest part of me engaging with the deepest part of Him…remember, this is what the Father is seeking! God wants relationship over religion!
When I ponder and look back over moments in dance ministry I am amazed at how the wind of the Spirit comes, goes, and shifts in multiple directions. No wonder Jesus explained to Nicodemus that the Holy Spirit’s work cannot be understood on human terms (See John 3:8)
Be sure to prepare your heart as well as your body for dance ministry. Be open to allow the Holy Spirit to move how HE wants! Sometimes we think we have it all figured out. Just trust Him when you feel Him and you see manifestations and when you don’t. Trust Him when it appears that He is moving upon other dancers and not you. Just know that if you are a surrendered vessel, He will use you and will be pleased with your sacrifice no matter what the outcome looks like in the natural! The atmosphere around you will change when you have totally surrendered your entire being into Him.
“Have the people of Israel build me a holy sanctuary so I can live among them.” Exodus 25:8
God still wants to hang out with us! Are you worshipping in spirit and truth? When I calmly think of the flaming sword and the cherubim that were set up to prevent the man from entering a certain place in the garden of Eden, and the scripture above, it gives me renewed hope that I can walk and live out my desire to come boldly before His throne of grace whenever! See Hebrews 4:14-16, 10:19-23.
Be encouraged and know that you are a welcomed guest in His house!

Sometimes it appears that our life becomes cluttered and filled with darkness and chaos. Not talking about the issues in the world, but the issues within our own little worlds! This is not uncommon. We are tempted, tried, squeezed, knocked on, kicked around, you name it. Jesus said in this world we would have tribulation, but be of good cheer for He has overcome the world (John 16:33). With all that we have going on plus living in this world and not being of it, there is no wonder we can get into a place of chaos! This chaos and darkness can influence and affect our soul’s well being. What are we to do? We are to speak life and light into every dark corner and order to every chaotic event. This is easier said than done sometimes but we have been given the grace to do it. Simply ask and trust! God knows all about this. When He said “let there be light” in the book of beginnings (Genesis), the earth was dark and without form! (dark and chaotic). But guess what??? There WAS LIGHT when HE SPOKE IT! We too, through Christ, have the authority to speak light and life! Speak to your darkness and chaos today and live in victory!

Poetry moves…poetry expresses….I’ve got a river of life in me and it moves me to write, to dance, to prophesy, to sing, yes that river that Jesus spoke about….out of my belly flows rivers of living waters because I run after Him cause I’m thirsty, thirsty, so thirsty I tell you and His Spirit in me flows and causes me to flow with Him. (John 7 :37-39)
