Hello and Praise the Lord!
I pray you are well... The Lord gave the idea to share about how worship dance can be beneficial to you. This morning I woke up inspired to talk about it all in a video newsletter! Scroll down a bit to see.
Whether you are a prayer closet worship dancer, do the hallelujah hop during praise and worship, are on or lead a praise dance ministry team, we can all benefit from dancing to, with and for the Lord! So what are some (of the many) of these benefits?
1. Intimacy with the Lord - When we really enter into worship, as we dance, there is nothing like that profound intimacy we experience in His glorious presence. It is a way to be closer to Him. As our incense of worship to Him goes up, so the many blessings come down.
2. Improved Emotional Well Being - When we dance (or exercise in general, particular if it is aerobic in nature), we release endorphins. These are hormones that literally make us feel good. In His presence is fullness of joy!
3. Strengthens Our Heart - It has been proven that just like other muscles in the body, the heart too is a muscle. So, when we are moving/dancing/exercising regularly, it improves the strength of our heart, making it more efficient.
4. Strengthens Our Bones - When we exercise or dance, we increase our bone density. This can help decrease or slow the risk of osteoporosis.
5. Weight Control - While a healthy diet is utmost for weight loss or maintenance, physical activity plays an ‘active’ roll in keeping our weight in check.
So, wherever you are in your worship dance journey, let me encourage you to take the next ‘step’ toward worshipping the Lord through movement, and experience these (and many, many more) wonderful benefits.
