Lose Control!

I wonder why people think that dancing before the Lord is out of order. Have you ever noticed how a baby never has to be taught to dance. When they get old enough to stand and move, when they hear music they dance. Yesterday, Brandon mentioned how the world has a counterfeit for everything kingdom. This is such a good point. For the supernatural, there is magic. For worship, there is dance, normally seductive, in a secular environment (da club). For truth, there is relative truth. I.E. - "your truth may be true to you, but it is not relative to me" Makes me want to gag. The whole point of truth is, it is true whether we believe it or not. That is what makes it true. We could go on and on. But, I have digressed. Back to the dancing point. I remember when I first began to want to dance in worship. There was just this thing that wanted to come out. In the words of the Pointer Sisters "I'm so excited and I just can't hide it. I'm about to lose control and I think I like it." See, they knew what was up. That was how I felt, and still feel while worshipping today. If I have any religious readers out there who cannot receive from the Pointer Sisters I will put in the words of David Crowder. "I cannot hold it in and remain composed. Love's taken over me so I propose, I'm letting myself go, I am letting myself go." See, David also knows what is up. So why all the thinking involved with worship. Why pick it apart. Why judge others motives. Why not just lose control and like it. I know God does.

I had one of those moments last night when you pull yourself back and look at everyone and everything going on and you think, "Wow. So this is how all the rumors get started!" I love it! It's so freeing to not be bound up by religion. I still have plenty in me, but it's comin out in the name of Jesus!

I know I have prophetic dances in me begging me to Lose Control.
Am I going to look as beautiful and graceful as Courtney? Well, maybe not to you, but to my Lord yes.

I know they're coming.

About the whole relative truth thing: A book I read, "I Don't Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist" explains it really well. I so totally know what you mean!

About the dancing: I was nervous to dance the first time. I didn't dance until the BFW. It seriously changed the way I felt when I worshiped. I didn't feel restricted, or like I was holding back anymore. I just felt like I was worshiping the Lord with every possible communication device I had in my body.
