Father, watching the figure skating events of the 1992 XVIth Winter Olympiad on live telecast lifted my soul up in praise of You!
The skaters may or may not have known You. Does it really matter? You made them and You know them. Just watching them gracefully slide across the white slippery ice created an urge in my daughter and me to dance for You! I cannot explain exactly why; maybe it was the way You made us so that we would find our best way of communicating our adoration and devotion to You through movement and music. No wonder, then, that an artist becomes depressed when he, for some reason, is unable to draw. People like that feel free as birds soaring into the sky when they let go of others' expectations of their behaviour and jump wholeheartedly into action for You!
Lord, how wonderful You are to grant us this freedom in You!
You alone will we worship! To You alone will we give our all!
Psalm 30:11 12
"You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever."
Psalm 149:1 5
“...Let them praise His name with dancing and make music to Him with tambourine and harp. For the Lord takes delight in His people; He crowns the humble with salvation. Let the saints rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds."
