The popular way is not always the best choice for us. Selecting only songs that are in heavy rotation on the radio may not be the message that the Lord wants to deliver through us. If we are called to minister through movement in a way that is unconventional, we must remember that the Bible is full of peculiar people used mightily by God.
Our garments may not be what everyone else is wearing. Our movements may not be ballet or modern. If the Lord has decreed a thing to us, then let us run without hesitation. It's time to throw out the dance ministry rule book and pick up the right Book. When we continue to feast on the Word of the Lord, we will obtain more liberty than ever on the narrow path.
The way that we are led may indeed be the road less traveled. We should not seek out the narrow way just to do something different. When we are truly anointed, we have no choice but to stand out from the crowd. Our human efforts will not sustain the pressures to be popular. When we are faithful to follow Him, even when many may not agree with how we do this thing called "dance ministry," we are guaranteed to succeed.

Matthew 7:13 (NKJV)

Luke 13:24 (NKJV)
