The End of the Road

Although we may continue in ministry until we leave this earth, many of us may reach the day when we no longer minister through movement. We may choose to serve in a different capacity or to pass the baton. Although not everyone will become a veteran of the worship arts, we should strive to make sure that our journey has not been run in vain. Whether we have served as founders of a movement ministry or inherited one, our participation should have made a difference in the places that we were able to dance. We can take steps now to make sure that our work will endure the fire.

Fully educating ourselves concerning the ministry of movement will open up doors to us beyond what we can imagine. We should be able to take this knowledge and greatly impact the lives of others. Inspiring someone to join the movement ministry is awesome, but serving as an usher into the Eternal Kingdom will result in a great reward. We are not dancing for our own pleasure. What great joy it would be to see many walking in righteousness and proclaiming Jesus as Lord because we were obedient!

It is my prayer that somewhere within these writings contained a blessing, word of encouragement, admonition, incitement to action, or just knowing that there is someone out there who can relate. Over the years, the ministry of dance has been a great blessing in my life, allowing me to travel, teach and minister in various territories and countries. I have personally heard many testimonies of people whose lives have been changed as a result of this ministry. It has been a humbling experience to see the captives set free, both inside and outside of the church. For the detractors, I have no argument. I have seen the hand of God in operation and know that He is a God of action. My hope is that you have experienced this work and as a result, will glorify my Father in Heaven.

His Servant,

Ecclesiastes 7:8 (NKJV)
The end of a thing is better than its beginning; The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.

Habakkuk 2:3 (NKJV)
For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

1 Corinthians 15:23-25 (NKJV)
But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming. Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet.

2 Corinthians 2:9 (NKJV)
For to this end I also wrote, that I might put you to the test, whether you are obedient in all things.

2 Timothy 4:5 (NKJV)
But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

Revelation 1:8 (NKJV)
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
