Undignified

"And I'll become even more undignified than this." (David Crowder Band, Undignified)

Does the groove ever hit you and you become undignified in dancing before the Lord? I love it when that happens (and my kids think it is hysterical). Sometimes we just need to dance before our Lord (and being from a Baptist background brings some baggage here).

I was reading from 2 Samuel chapter 6 this morning and we see David (from the Bible, not the Crowder Band) dancing with all his might and shouting to the music, with gladness. When chastised by his wife for his behavior in public he says, "And I will be even more undignified than this, and will be humble in my own sight."

He was simply saying that out of his humility of heart, and worship of His God, he will dance. There is freedom in Christ, freedom to sing, freedom to worship, and freedom to dance. And though we all struggle with what others think at times, it comes down to an audience of One.

So turn it up and become undignified!

I'm dancing for the Lord as I read this post. I've been streaming David Crowder all afternoon!(Hey cool- I can type to the beat :) Girl, I was right there with you last night dancing in my boots, hands raised, voice for the Lord!! An experience I'll hold onto for a long time. People of every age all lit up for their Lord, it was just precious :)If you ever want to jump in a VW van and head to Waco, I'm in!
