Let me tell you what inspired me to give this Blog post this title. I was reading Psalms Chapter 119 verse 17. It says in the Passion Bible Translation…”Let me, your servant, walk in abundance of life that I may always live to obey your truth.”
In the break heading in the Chapter it says; The Abundant Life and as I was looking at it it was changing to The Anointed Life. I kept looking and the word “abundance” was somehow split and I saw abun……….. dance….and I kept looking and it said- the Dance of Life; and so it was:
The Abundant Life
The Anointed Life
The Dance of Life
Wow! I never saw this before but it just seemed to change before my eyes to this wonderful breakdown, but I really paid attention more to the “Dance” of Life because I have never seen that in the word abun dance. I love when the Holy Spirit does things that blow my mind!!! He shows me things I would just glance over and just figure that I have read that before and really not look for anything new to learn…..not so!
It makes me think of the prayer that says; “Open my eyes Lord, that I may see wonderful things out of your law.” He always has things to teach us or to show us out of His Word as we spend the time with Him……to linger with Him and SEE; or that word He gave me- FOCUS! I did and look what I saw! It has always been there I’m sure but I didn’t see it before. It prompts me to do a study on all three of those points.
In my time that I spend with Him I go from Psalms to Proverbs and read a little from both books. He had more to show me about the dance out of the Book of Proverbs. This came from Chapter 8 vs. 24. Under that heading of that break in the chapter it says: Wisdom in the Beginning and so it says; “Before the ocean depths were poured out, and before there were any glorious fountains overflowing with water, I was there dancing! Oh, isn’t that exciting? It goes on in vs. 25 saying; “Even before one mountain had been sculpted or one hill raised up, I was already there, dancing.” Isn’t that something? So I conclude that it must be important to God that He made us to dance! These verses are all talking about Jesus, God’s Son. He loves to dance! To get the whole gist of it, read the whole chapter. (In the notes on vs. 24, the word “born” in many translations means in Hebrew….”to kick and twirl” or to “dance.”) Just fascinating!!!
Let’s see, dance in the Dictionary means-
to leap, skip, etc., as from excitement or emotion; move nimbly or quickly to dance with joy. And here is a picture to go with it……

This is really inspiring and I was thinking that this year I would love to take dance lessons in Ballet just for the fun of it and the stretching I could do; I like slow moves like a Cat does and not fast jerky ones and this really would be fun! I tried Zumba for a while but Nah!!! That is not for me anymore.
Well my fellow Travelers, this is what I wanted to share for today. You can do more research on “the dance.” I bet there is plenty of places in God’s word where there is more….I will too….time for some Ice Cream and a Brownie…..and then I’ll dance it off! LOL!
