Why I Dance

From Blog10


In the middle of my serious faith--
Nations' destinies,
Eternal verities--
Came shouts of celebration,
Joyous whirling dance,
Songs of jubilation.
Who dare such sudden state
Of self-abandond partying?
No happenstance
This whirl of dance:
The LORD himself--
He'd started it.
How could I cling to my cold piety
Or keep my deep respectability?
He'd broken all my rules.
So, that is why I dance.

The LORD your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.

(Zephaniah 3:17 ESV)
