Holly Daze

Along with the "Holiday Season" comes the pressure to deliver a stellar visual piece. Selecting the right song, attire, and choreography can get downright overwhelming. For some dancers, the music is already pre-selected by a music director that the dancers must use in accordance with the singers and drama department. If all elements of the group are not on one accord, many may find themselves confused and in a daze.

When we focus on the occasion more than the reason for ministry, we can find ourselves concentrating on trivial matters and completely miss the mark. Our celebration and remembrance should last more than a season. We should devote a lifetime to lifting up the name of Jesus, regardless of the method by which we minister.

When we remain prayerful and full of the Word, the Lord will give us the solution for times when we are expected to "put on a show." It does not matter what people may think, our objective must be to bring glory to God. It should not take a nationally recognized occasion to bring out the best in us. Regardless of the day of the week or season, we should always be able to bring glory to God in the highest!

Matthew 6:1 (NKJV)
[Do Good to Please God] “Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.

Romans 8:8 (NKJV)
So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
