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.

    Wow..absolutely amazing and wonderful and it brought tears to my eyes to see so many faithful celebrating the Resurrection and having so much fun! You never see anything like that up here in the northern reaches of the States – it’s why I find it so beautiful to see ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love this! There is a world wide “Up to Faith” flashmop if anyone wants to start a group for next Easter Sunday I’m sure they will do another one. Siesta’s when you open the site watch the trailer at the bottom of the home page, then it’s fun to see groups dancing all over the world Up to Faith. I have heard recently, and it makes perfect sense, God created music for praise and He will use music (and dance) to furthur His Kindgom. This website/group is a way we can all participate I did not find it soon enough this year maybe some Siesta’s can get together and post Beth a video or two next Easter. ๐Ÿ™‚ and the LPM have their own group too, this gives dance tutorials, music everything we need.

    I went in and watched the practice
    videos (there is one from Saddleback Church we are all familiar with that name) Beth if SSMT needs an “activity” maybe by January the Up to Faith will have a new dance to learn….just sayin. ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep an eye or sign up for the emails Up To Faith is combining all the videos submitted around the world for one video.

    WOW! I have waited all my life to see a bunch of set-free Baptists dancing! Glory! Glory to God in the highest…it is good to be free from the bonds of sin and death and express it with “In Him I live and move and have my being and I can dance to glorify HIM!”
    This was beautiful. Thanks for sharing this….joy unspeakable and full of glory. Did you see that elderly white haired granny dancing her feet off? Yes! Yes, I can!

    I don’t know why, but flash mob dancing always makes me tear up. Something about seeing a huge group join together… and don’t even get me started on photos set to music. Like Graduation or Weddings that have those… man, they get me every time!

    Didn’t get to wish you girls a Happy Easter, but I KNOW it was a good one for you all!!


  31. 131

    Psa 150:1-6 ESV Praise the LORD! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe!
    Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!

    Ecc 3:4 ESV a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

    If the resurrection of Jesus doesn’t give us cause to rise up and dance and isn’t the right time, what does?

    Jennifer Dowis says:

    I was just able to view this & I love it! My next thought though was why can’t/ doesn’t this happen more. Not necessarily a choreagraphed piece, but just out right, letting yourself go and giving the Lord the praise and worship he is do. I know we all have unique presonalities, but worshipping in church yesterday when even welcomed and encouraged to let it out, I no better than anyone else held back. And for what, but approval or rather not recieving the disapproval or strange looks of others. When will we break free of this kind of thinking? And simply dance! ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a celebration we had yesterday! Sunrise Service at 6:30 in the morning! Worshiping our risen Savior. What gratitude, chills, thankfulness, I felt standing thinking of what He did for ME! Thank you Jesus for your love for me. I didn’t deserve it but you still died for me.

    Dear Beth and all of the Staff at Living Proof Ministries,

    What a great, uplifting video and I love the music. Of course, whenever I see a group of Christians worshiping and praising God, I am thrilled. There is excitement and sheer energy through the power of the Trinity (God, Our Father; Jesus, Our Savior, Our Redeemer, Our Deliverer and the Holy Spirit).

    Praise Be To God!

    Thank you to all of the people at LPM. I appreciate all of your hard work. I thank you for your many ways of encouragement in your books, in your Bible studies and with the various website materials. A “special thanks” to Beth for continuing to illustrate in so many ways that God loves each of us.

    May God Bless each of you!

    In God’s Love,

    That would be the most fun ever!! Can you imagine what it would look like!! All of us dancing with abandon as we praise dance and sing for what He has done for us!! My children and I do this in our home and in the car. People probably think we are crazy but…we are HAPPY crazy people!!

    What would Jesus think? Reminds me of the Zumba class at my daughters fine arts school. I saw the group on You Tube that sang Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus in the mall. Now that really took my breath away!!

    My cousin Jeanine sent this to us via facebook. I also saw a clip of this on Fox News. Thank you so much for coordinating this and making sure it got out via the airwaves. Jesus is pleased. What a wonderful display of
    worshiping Him through dance. God bless you for taking the time to make all of our Easter season special.
