Glorious Resurrection Day!

This was taped in Houston by some wonderful visionaries at Second Baptist Church. To us here in the city, many familiar faces light up the screen. You don’t have to know them to wish you were one of them, though! One of these days, we Siestas will all gather out on a big field and dance our feet off over the grace and glory of Jesus Christ. He is risen!

I love you guys so much.

    “UP FROM THE GRAVE HE ROSE AGAIN!!! And as He stands in victory, sin’s curse has lost it’s grip on me. For I am his, and He is mine, bought with the precious blood of Christ!”

    Happy Easter Beth and Siestas! ♥

    Happy, Glorious Easter! He Lives! May His love fill your day! Praise, Honour, and Glory be to our Father. May we adore Him today. May we worship in Spirit and in Truth for He alone is Glorious, Wonderful, and Faithful.

    May we adore You today, Lord, and honour YOU. May we worship You alone. Keep us from self-indulgence and self-seeking pleasure in worship. May we die to self, so that You may live. Draw near and may our worship be Your delight today … a sweet and fragrant offering. Thank you for your magnificent work and sacrifice for us. Oh, we love You and adore You today. In Your saving, loving, all-powerful, and redeeming Name, we pray. Hallelujah, the stone was rolled away!

    Oh, He is so worthy of our Worship!

    Crying. Grateful. Joyful. Amazed. Ready to dance….
    And to give. In the Name of Jesus.

    Thank you, Beth, Amanda & Melissa and LPM Ministries, for all that you do for us.

    My heart overflows thinking how incredible it is that all God’s people around the WORLD will be celebrating His resurrection this morning. In Africa, Asia, Europe, and all across the states, including in my city of Seattle, WA. Lord, today, may YOU be lifted up. And may You draw all people unto You. Amen.

    LOVE IT! I agree with ForeverHis and Lauren… joyful tears are flowing….

    Thanks for sharing, Beth – not only this incredible video, but thank you for sharing your life in order to advance His Kingdom. Through your obedience to God, you have helped me see many things in ways and my life is not the same. May God continue to pour His Spirit over you, and may we all strive to glorify our Sovereign God.

    This video has been going around on email here in Atlanta. It brought tears to my eyes; I was “dancing” with them in spirit. A glorious picture of a future day when throngs of us will be dancing before Jesus to worship Him. Hallelujah! He is Alive!!

  25. 25

    Wow! Just as David danced before the Lord, so we too can dance before him with rejoicing! I wish I had been there.

    He is risen, indeed!! Video makes me want to move my crew to Houston… or at least boogie here in DC for Jesus! Lord knows this city could use a proper praise boogie. Happy, HAPPY EASTER, Siestaville! May His resurrection power move freely through your homes and cities this day! LOVE to you!

    Oh Beth. I hope we get another emotion when we get to heaven. The ones I’m held to now just don’t seem to do it justice.

    What a wonderful time they must have had filming this video. Happy Easter!! Thank for all you do in the name of our Lord Jesus. So thankful for His love, His forgiveness and His presence.
    I rewrote some the words that go with the song “I hope you dance” to make into Christian words:


    I hope you never lose your spirit of love

    You get your fill to holiness but always keep the faith

    May you never take one single breath for granted

    God forbid you follow your own way and be left empty-hearted.

    I hope you still feel His presence when you stand to look at what He has done

    Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens

    Promise Him that you will give faith a fighting chance

    And when you get the choice to choose I hope you think to pray

    I hope you pray

    I hope you pray

    I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance

    Never settle for the path that leads to temptation

    Living might mean taking chances but they’re worth making

    Lovin’ God will lead a way that is worth taking

    Don’t let some others lead you astray

    When you come close to selling out reconsider

    Give the Lord up above more than just a passing glance

    And when you get the choice to choose I hope you think to pray

    I hope you pray

    (Time is constantly running away)

    I hope you pray

    (Passing us by)

    I hope you pray

    (You will not want to look back over the years and wonder)

    I hope you pray

    (Where those years have gone)

    I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance

    Never settle for the path that leads to temptation

    Living might mean taking chances but they’re worth making

    Lovin’ God will lead a way that is worth taking

    I am probably one of the few following that blog who doesn’t speak English as a first language. I am French. But I have done most of your Bible studies, Beth, either with friends or alone and I LOVE them. My husband and I are missionaries with an American mission and we have been back in France for a couple of years. The spiritual need in France is very high.

    I don’t know if the inspiration for the Resurrection Dance in Houston came from this one below. But it might be. This happened last year in Budapest and the video was seen around the world. In the original version, the singing is in Hungarian.

    I will be in Budapest next Sunday and will be at church with these people. Praise the Lord!

    Thank you for the great sharing that you do through the blog.

    Much Love in Jesus.

    Oh my that was an awesome video, the last part brought tears to my eyes one day we will dance in the heavens with Jesus thank you Lord that you are alive and because You are alive we live.The song we sang in church this morning just brought chills all over me it was
    (I AM)
    I Am the Maker of the Heavens
    I Am the Bright and Morning Star
    I Am the Breath of all Creation
    Who always was
    And is to come
    I Am the One who walked on water
    I Am the One who calmed the seas
    I Am the miracles and wonders
    So come and see
    And follow Me
    You will know

    I Am the Fount of Living Water
    The risen Son of Man
    The Healer of the Broken
    And when you cry
    I Am your Savior and Redeemer
    Who bore the sins of man
    The Author and Perfecter
    Beginning and the End

    Thank you Siesta Mama for showing this video
    Have A Blessed Easter to all the siesta’s
    Thank you Lord for Your Son
    He is Alive Praise You Jesus

    I am not for certain but I think the Houston video may have been inspired by a similar praise event that took place in the town square of Budapest, Hungary on Easter Sunday 2010. If you have a minute, take a look at the video. I promise your heart will be blessed by what God is doing in Hungary.
