I Will Bless the Lord

Grab your copy of the book today I Will Bless the Lord, 28 Days of Praise and Worship

I never thought that I would write a praise and worship devotional. I really enjoy worshiping and praising the Lord through dance, but I thought my first book would be about dance. Even though I always knew that I would author a book, the journey to writing this devotional was very interesting. It started off as a simple idea of wanting to share scriptures from the book of Psalm that were relative to praise and worship. However, the Holy Spirit began to guide me as I researched. It was supposed to be a blog post, but it turned into a book. I felt a pull to have this as a book. It's not just for dancers, but for the Body of Christ.

Why a praise and worship devotional

I believe the Most High wants us to devote more time to Him in praise and worship outside of the church. Praise and worship should be a daily practice. It is part of building your relationship with the Father. Think of it this way: when you are in a relationship with someone you will direct your focus and attention on them. Whether in words or in actions, you will find some way to compliment or give them affection. The same goes with our Heavenly Father. He is more inclined to be near us when we first have a clean heart, and when we worship and praise Him.

Why 28 days of praise and worship

Twenty-eight days represents God's perfect timing and renewal. In Biblical times, the lunar calendar was based on the phases of the moon which lasted 28 days. He gave us the moon and the stars to be able to tell time and the seasons. Each new month began with a sliver of the moon otherwise known as the new moon. During this time people would come together with the sound of the shofar, praise and worship, and gathering to celebrate.

See scriptures:
Psalm 81:2-4
Numbers 10:10

Why a short devotional

This was designed to help you get your day started. Whether you are at your work desk, over coffee at home, or in your car; you can read the scripture and commentary in one sitting. You will have time to meditate and reflect on the passage of scripture throughout the day. There is a different praise or worship for each day. Some require movement. The praise or worship corresponds to the scripture, commentary, and personal stories.

Reviews from Amazon

Those that have read the book have been blessed to use this devotional as a part of their daily prayers. They have felt a closer relationship to God. Another found this to be a short book that can be read in one sitting. 

All are experiencing something different and powerful at the same time. They are experiencing a connection to God as they journey through praise and worship.

What do your praise dance movements mean?

Interpreting Dance MovementsClick here to Pin this post on Pinterest. 
Just as your words have power, so does your movements. It is important to realize the power that dance possesses. It has the power to move anyone to tears, and the power to make anyone feel uncomfortable. As dancers, we have the ability to tell stories with our bodies. At times we can become silent storytellers. As liturgical dancers, we have the power to convey the message of God. We have the ability to express worship through our dance, salvation, warfare, and peace.

While dance movements can be in various combinations to interpret a song or music, there are specific movements that liturgical dancers use that have Biblical meaning.

Bow When you bow you can bend at the waist with your head down, lay prostrate, or bend on one knee in a
lunge. Also, doing a plie will express the same message as a bow. In the Bible when someone was in the bowing position it was in reverence before the Lord. To bow means to worship…

How to Start a Liturgical Dance Ministry at Your Church

Starting a liturgical dance ministry is an awesome mandate. It is one that is not to be taken lightly. With much prayer and resources, you can build a liturgical dance ministry that brings glory to God and that is highly successful.

To begin a dance ministry you must have a passion for giving your gift of dance to the Lord. It is He that gave you the gift of dance. James 1:17 says "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." This is the foundation of beginning a liturgical dance ministry. In order to be able to fully give yourself to a ministry or even a commitment, you must have a passion for it. You must know that starting a dance ministry is right for you. You will be able to articulate and teach liturgical dance from your heart.
