Praising God with Song and Dance ~ Day 2

It's day 2 of our 31 day challenge [Click here to see the other days]. I am so excited about the focus God has been giving me for where he wants this series to go. I feel blessed to be facilitating it.

 Now that we've talked about what drawing close to God means, let's talk about one way we can do that.

Psalm 100:1-5
A psalm. For giving grateful praise.
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
    Worship the Lord with gladness;
    come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
    It is he who made us, and we are his[a];
    we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
    and his courts with praise;
    give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
    his faithfulness continues through all generations.

  Psalm 150 says Praise the Lord.[a]
Praise God in his sanctuary;
    praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
    praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
    praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
    praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
    praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.

There is something so freeing about making a joyful noise unto the Lord. And he is SO worthy of that. Are you one of those people that worries about "looking appropriate" or not "drawing attention" to yourself with your praise and worship? Go read 2 Samuel chapter 6 and find out what the Lord really thinks about that. 

Oh, to dance like David danced. Oh, to sing like he sang.

Today I will draw closer to God by singing his praise, dancing for him right here in my living room. (my kids will think this is awesome.) Join me, wont you?
