Company Keepers: Dance Ministry Talk Blog (Daily meditations for dance ministry)  

Hi, I found a wonderful daily meditations/ reflections for dancers involved in dance ministry. I've been following it for a while and found it very inspiring, encouraging and very consistent. The author is Rekesha Pittman, a Praise dance Speaker, Dancer, Writer from Las Vegas,Nevada (United States). She is affiliated with the Las Vegas Liturgical Dance Network and also International Dance Commission (IDC). Do check her blog out for great words of wisdom and reflections: http://companykeepers.blogspot.com/

An article from her blog that encouraged me:

Somebody Bigger Than You and I

The vastness of God cannot be comprehended by mankind. There is no one church, denomination, organization, or culture that can provide the sole definition of Who God is. This should allow us to be more open to different expressions of movement. Though the Lord advocates creative diversity, not all movement done to gospel music is done with pure intentions. Our dance ministries should continue to reflect the diversity of our knowledge of God.

The Bible gives us guidelines concerning the attributes of the Almighty. When we are selecting songs to use in ministry, we must search to verify that the words of the song agree with the Word. Just as every person who proclaims to be a prophet may not indeed be one, every songwriter is not guaranteed to be inspired by God. We also should not rely too heavily on one artist or music style. This may limit our ability to see the bigger picture in the long run.

Many ministries have a sincere desire to dance, but not all dancers can attest to having had a personal experience with Him. Sharing our testimonies through dance will be most effective to someone who can relate. There is also the invitation for those watching us move to experience transformation when we embody the Word. We can never be locked into thinking that we know how the Lord will reveal Himself to someone else. We may have encountered Him in a church setting, but our neighbor may have a different testimony. This should encourage us to know that there will never be too many dance ministries. There is enough of God to go around for everyone.

1 Kings 8:27 (KNJV)
"But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain You. How much less this temple which I have built!

2 Chronicles 2:6 (KNJV)
But who is able to build Him a temple, since heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain Him? Who am I then, that I should build Him a temple, except to burn sacrifice before Him?

2 Chronicles 6:18 (KNJV)
"But will God indeed dwell with men on the earth? Behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain You. How much less this temple which I have built!

John 21:25 (KNJV)
And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen.

    I am glad to see movement ministers who "Dance in the Expanse" through use of the internet and the Word of God. Thanks for your blog and Kingdom encouragement.
