Every Giant Will Fall – dance

In February a group of us gathered together to spend a day dancing, praying and worshipping. It was great to meet new friends and catch up with old ones. During the final part of the day, we learnt a dance together, to celebrate the main theme of the day. That every giant will fall, because God is bigger than them all.

It was amazing to see how God worked amongst each participant throughout the day, helped them to grow as a dancer and grow in their faith and draw together with others.

When we looked to build the dance we wanted to consider how God had built us up during the day, from being on our own to walking alongside God and others in our walk. Verse one began with 2, verse 3 a group of 4, before a big group took verse 3. The choruses brought everyone together, to connect, rejoice and then move on.

Enjoy watching and be blessed, don’t forget that every giant has fallen, the mountains have moved, and the chains of the past have broken in two.

Make Your Space

It’s the last day of 2016, lots of people spend this reflecting on what has been and start to look ahead to what may come in 2017. Many people count down till the year ends, start the new one with a long list of things they are going to do, saying ‘2017 will be the year…’

But is that really the case…. stating things that you want to get through in 2017, your dreams, hopes etc. does that help you achieve them? There has been lots that has gone on this year, good stuff and bad stuff, which I am sure is the same for a lot of people. However, when I look ahead, there is one thing that I want more than anything…. SPACE.

Space in my house, space in my life, space to be me, space to dance, space to just be! Some of you maybe mothers, and others not, but I am sure each other can resonate with the fact that we all feel at some point like there’s not enough time or space. To carve out some personal time for projects (including writing this blog) or just space to think is really hard. So one thing I am praying more than anything for is that I give God space, which will allow me to have space.

God catches us unawares, rallies us in our darkest moments, sends us buzzing in the crazy ones. He is always there and waiting, let’s allow him the space to have that relationship.

In December we had a Dance, Move, Pray session. This was simply just a space to gather and move, spend time to with God. Myself, Lizzie and Julia were there, for each of us, it was what we needed right then. The opportunity to just be in a space, be close to God, to pray and move however much or little we wanted. I want more of this! I crave more of this!

So lets be real. Decide ONE thing as you enter 2017. Where are you and God? Where do you want to be with God?

I’ll leave you with a little clip from our dance space in December.

Solid Rock I Stand

In Octobica-group-091016er I had the privilege to dance with some ladies from Emmanuel Church, Guildford, where we put together a dance to In Christ Alone/ Solid Rock by Travis Cottrell.

Putting a dance together is always such a process, but the most enjoyable thing is taking time to draw close to God and seek out what he wants to say to others through our dance. One of the over arching themes during this dance, was the desire that God is our solid rock throughout all seasons, and will carry us ‘when all around is sinking sand’. Each dancer has a different skill and set of choreography to bring to a dance, which is why it’s a privilege to work together. God speaks to us all in different ways, and that includes through different movements.

We shared the dance during a missions Sunday, which gave a great opportunity to bless others and show how dance can be used to share a message. Do hope you are blessed as you watch. Know that God will carry, He’s bigger than what you are going through, let him carry you, and build you up when you need it most.
