My walk with Kairos

 

When I joined the dance ministry I never thought it would be within praise & worship. I learned from a awesome women of God you should always use your talents that God gave you, and use them from the heart not because you are being asked. After teaching for several years, I started to feel like the focus in the ministry was completely wrong. I was ready to grow spiritually, mentally, and physically. Although I was blessing those around me, i was missing the most important thing, growth within myself. I prayed about it, talked about it with others, I even thought about stepping down as a ministry leader. Then one night after a performance I was approached by Porsha H. to come to a casting call. I took that sheet of paper and said I am not in the mood for this today, maybe next time. A few days had passed, and I read that piece of paper every day. I had made it up in my mind that I was not going to go, I napped on the couch restless, and finally said I will know longer fight with you God. I will get up and go. I was not prepared for the event, but i did show up. When I left all I could say was Thank You God!. Kairos is such a warm hearted and caring group of christian individuals. We all have our own lives, but we have the same walk of life and that is to follow Christ. I am still a little nervous at times, but I can say that this is a powerful group of individuals, and i thank god everyday for surrounding me with people I know is cover by the blood of Jesus.

God has your back

The Lord has truly been good to me, no matter the valleys, the storms, or any form of tribulation. God is still great! I lean on God’s understanding and not that of my own. The Lord is my refuge where I can hide from my enemies until He takes care of them. He is my friend and comforter when no one else will talk to me and for that I give Him the praise!! Trust and know that God has your back in every situation. Think about it this way… if you are on a journey in your car and you come to a bump, pot hole, hill, or mountain, you need to have the gas (faith) to get through whatever is in front of you to get to your destination, which is your reward. If you don’t have gas to get through the obstacles, you don’t deserve the reward!
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. – James 1:2

Will the TRUE worshippers please Dance!

Worship Experience at Dancing Preachers International Conference

A couple weeks ago, Amber (co-founder of Kairos Kreative Ministries) and I had the pleasure of attending Dancing Preachers International. This annual conference is an opportunity for various people from all over to gather in celebration of dance as true worship. We spent four days learning, teaching, celebrating, networking and most importantly worshiping among a great, diverse body of believers!

Our relationship with God is so multidimensional, words cannot begin to contain. However, it is our worship that holds the key to revelation, breakthrough, blessings, and deliverance. One of the workshop facilitators Julinda Lewis stated “dance is an outward expression of an inward relationship.” How then can we expect our dance (outward expression) to break yokes, destroy strongholds, draw souls closer to God, and loose His praise, if WE haven’t taken the time to cultivate the inward relationship with God?

His word tells us that “God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth” John 4:24. Long gone are the days of playing church. Our Father is not pleased with our conventional, ritualistic traditions. He is searching the earth for hearts that are thirsty for Him! How beautiful is it to know that our worship is not just an obligation but privilege! With that privilege comes great responsibility. When we as worshipers, take our worship public via dance, mime, theater, WE are then held accountable for those souls we are ministering to.  The question I’ve posed to myself and to Kairos as a ministry is this: would God be pleased with our worship?

Here are a few general pieces of advice from those pioneers leading the restoration of dance as true worship:

-Maintain your intimate relationship with God. James 4:8a

-Put on the garment of love, daily! 1 Corinthians 13:2

-Remember that God is fruit inspector; the fruit we bear should be sweet, ripe, beautiful and nourishing. Matthew 7:16-20

-Always be a servant. Matthew 20:25-28

-Embrace a spirit of unity. Romans 15:5-6

The reality is my worship today is not going to suffice tomorrow. My God continues to show Himself greater day by day, and so must my worship! I challenge you to ask yourself: Would God be pleased with my worship?

Hello All,

What a privilege and an honor it was to minister in the Music City Chapter of GMWA Welcome Concert yesterday July 7th. The song we ministered to was Benita Washington I’ve seen him work. This song just makes my spirit happy from the first verse to the last, please download it for yourself. The part that puts me over the top is

When God allows it
There’s purpose in it
That’s His plan
It’s in His hand
Trust his word
And never doubt
Whatever your situation
He’s working it out

When I look at some of my past and present situations such as, having seizure spells at age 9 and not being able to walk by myself without assistance from another person for 2 years. I thought I would never be able the walk yet alone DANCE. But God… He spoke to me so clearly and told me to “Stop taking your medicine my child, you are healed”. And from that day I had the Faith (the size of mustard seed) that I was healed. I have not had a spell since that moment..God is so good. Now my faith is again being tested with my father being diagnosed with dementia. It is ruff seeing him in this state of mind, when he had a very independent personality.  But I decree and declare that a Miracle is on the way.!!

He is working it out for YOU, just believe. You may not be able to see nor understand how it is working out, but Isaiah 55:8 says “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. You might not EVER understand why a love one has gone on, why your relationship did not have that fairly tale ending, why family does not act like family, why you have to work harder than everyone else to make it to that next level in your career. God is working it out… Have the faith… Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Be Blessed
