And David danced before the LORD with all his might, wearing a priestly garment.
– 2 Samuel 6:14

Ballet dancers have always intrigued me. They are full of grace, elegance and style. When I think of a ballerina, I think of a milky white swan –gliding on a pristine lake. What a picture of peace!

In the Bible, King David danced before the Lord! I am not sure if it was as graceful as a ballerina’s pirouettes. However, this image of David dancing for the God of All Creation sends chills up and down my spine. It is not only beautiful – it’s full of grace.

God has called us to be his peaceful dancers. Trials in life might set us back or make our dance a little less graceful – but the truth is this – God is the giver of peace and grace. He loves to see your dance before him. We never need to feel embarrassed. He yearns for us to step out and dance in his truth.



It is my honor to dance before you. Though my dance may not be as graceful and perfect as I would wish, this dance of joy and hope is for you! Give me your beauty and your precision in life. I long to continue dancing in your truths! May I be an example of your love to others always!

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
