Dancing away...

Can I share a secret with you? I love when the Holy Spirit that lives within me does cartwheels! Ok, before you think that I am crazing read on. A lot of times the Lord speaks to me when I am driving in my car listening to the Christian radio station. During this particular season of my life, when I hear “Until the Whole World Sings” by Casting Crowns the Holy Spirit within me dances. I can not describe to you but I when I hear this song my hands are lifted high, well one hand at a time and the only thing that keeps me in my seat is my seatbelt. I want to shout and every word that utters out of my mouth as I sing along has a sincere meaning. For example, the one part of the song goes like this, “Lord I want to feel with Your heart/ See the world through Your eyes/ I want to be Your hands and feet/ I want to live a life that leads.” The first time I heard this song, I had to ask myself, do I truly want to see the pain of others through God’s eyes? Yes! I want the Lord to use me to minister to others. I want to be His hands and feet. Do you?

When I sing I truly mean what I sing and that is when the Holy Spirit within me does His cartwheels. The minute that I wake up each morning I have a choice to be a walking missionary for the Kingdom of God. You and I have been instructed in Matt 28:19-20, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.” But when was the last time we anonymously dropped of groceries at the house of the family who was in need? Or paid someone’s electric bill? As I sing, my words mean nothing if they are not backed out by my actions. And trust me, the Word of God says, that “it is much more a blessing to give than to receive.” () So let’s unit and “sing until the whole world hears.” Let’s show God’s love through our actions by helping those who are in need (“But be doers of the Word and not hearers only” James 1:22) so that God can get all the glory, honor and praise.


  1. Amen, Sister!
    Same for me and I love that song too :)

  2. Love that same song! And I love your enthusiasm and heart for the Lord. I wish I had known the Lord as you do when I was your age. (I don't really know how old you are, but I'm assuming early twenties. I wasn't saved until I was 27)

  3. Doers, YES! Thank-you for this post.
