Sing, Dance, and Play!
© 2013 Marlene Bertrand
One of the greatest joys we can bring to the Lord is worship.
Worship is not so much about who, what, when, where, and how. It's about opening up our hearts and giving back to the Lord through our voice with song, our body with dance, and sound through instruments.
When you sing to the Lord, don't worry about whether you are singing in tune or out of tune, too loud or too soft. Remember, the Lord gave you your voice, so he wants to hear your voice just as it has been created. When you dance, remember that the Lord gave you your body and rhythm or not, the Lord takes joy in seeing you dance for him. And, when you play, remember that the Lord gave you your talent and wants to watch you play no matter what sound comes from the instruments you use.
Worshiping the Lord is one of the quickest ways to move yourself into a positive mood. It's because when you worship, it is not about you. When you worship, you take yourself out of the equation and devote that moment in your life to the Lord. From the first sound you give to worship, you feel his warmth. His presence comforts you.
Worship your hearts out. Just sing, just dance, just play! It is all pleasing to the Lord.
