Dare to be Different

We do not have to feel pressured to move like anyone else. Too many ministries base their identities on what has been seen by another group or dancer. When the Lord selects us to minister before Him and His people, He has designed us in such a way that we are all created with care.

If the Lord speaks to you in a way that may seem abstract, allow Him to have His perfect work in you. Do not think it strange or odd when the Lord reveals an idea that has not been witnessed before in our eyes. In turn, we must not immediately dismiss things that we see that are unlike what we do.

When dancers begin to celebrate the vastness of the Lord's creation, then we will be able to fully enjoy the beauty of worship through movement. Learning various styles of worship unto the Lord in movement will also give us more diversity in our pieces. If we cannot appreciate the differences that we have and celebrate them as well, then we will only endorse the things that look like our own. Even the flowers are not all the same. Let us rejoice that we are not all alike!

Romans 12:4 (NKJV)
For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function

Romans 12:6 (NKJV)
Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith

1 Corinthians 12:5 (NKJV)
There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord.
