Connecting to God

Exodus 15:20-21

Then Miriam the prophet, Aaron’s sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women followed her, with timbrels and dancing. 21 Miriam sang to them: “Sing to the LORD, for he is highly exalted. Both horse and driver he has hurled into the sea.”

I am always singing and dancing.  Blame my parents.  I was blessed to be raised in a “musical” household.  There was always some new cantata to learn or I was playing on my flute.  The radio or cd player pretty much played non-stop.  I went to a church where dancing was not considered “appropriate”.  Imagine my surprise when I went to First Assembly and I saw dancing…in church? ok then.  At first, I felt awkward and weird.  But the more I danced, the more I realized it was my way to worship God.  We all have our own ways of connecting through God.  I use dance and singing.  When I am at my lowest and I cannot rise, I turn to my playlist of favorite worship songs.  Truth Be Told, Way maker, Chain breaker, Famous For, all of these and more help me connect and go deeply into God’s presence.

So now here it is.  Your challenge.  Spend this next week finding what brings you deeply into God’s presence ((praying, preaching, singing, meditating…whatever)) and practice, practice, practice.

I reside in the heart of New England with my 2 sons and my husband. My eldest son visits us frequently. When not in the office, I love to sing and to write and more than anything I love God and I follow Him truly truly ♥

One thought on “Connecting to God

  1. How cool that dancing and singing bring you closer to God! I am smiling, Amanda-Lyn. What I call “Presence” or just being with God in awareness helps bring me closer. Have been sinking into this practice a lot the last couple of days.
