Dancing in the Sanctuary

Do you sometimes like to visit churches other than your own to see how other Christians worship ?

My husband and I recently visited a church that had a sign outside advertising a ‘Praise and Worship ‘ service. I was unsure about that, since I thought praise and worship meant the same thing, but we decided to attend.

We sat in the back row of the church, since we are both still recovering from Collapsed Catholic Syndrome ( CCS).

There was a handsome man playing guitar, and the praise and worship music was very lively and enthusiastic ! What was most fascinating for us was a young boy who was dancing by himself in front of the altar. He was obviously enjoying himself very much, and was dancing joyfully, without inhibition.

He reminded me of David, who danced with joy in front of the Ark of the Covenant in 2 Samuel 6 :14.

The boy inspired me greatly. Today I found myself dancing joyfully by myself while gazing out to sea !

I was dancing to the song : ‘Days of Elijah’ by Robin Mark. I felt elated, and happy as I praised the Lord.

The Lord is delighted with all sincere worship from his children. Just as I was typing this, I remembered the name of the boy I saw dancing in the Church.

He is the grandson of the pastor of this church. The boy’s name is Elijah.

  1. Love it! I used to go to a church where anyone who wanted to could dance – and a lot of us did. The kids loved it, and I always loved to dance, in church or in my own kitchen. I was just “indulging” in that pleasure earlier today – arthritis and all – to NeedToBreathe ‘s song “Multiplied.” I think my Father was smiling. πŸ™‚


      1. Hi Sally! I’m out for my morning walk. Just listened to Robin’s version. It was really anointed too! I could sense His excitement for the Lord. ❀️


  2. The most lively worship service I went to was in Ensenda Mexico. It was wonderful. I felt free myself to express my love for Jesus in worship, but I didn’t dance because I am too klutzy to dance πŸ™‚


  3. The Bible also says that the Lord rejoices over his people with singing (Zephaniah 3:17) and the word rejoice in the original language means to whirl around and leap about, just like David did. God bless you.
