Shake it for the Lord!

2 Samuel 6:14 "David, wearing a linen ephod, danced before the LORD with all his might..."

This is the verse that helps to explain what “Shake it for the Lord” really means. No matter what is going on in my life, be it good or bad, I can always put away my own thoughts and worries and dance and pray before the Lord. If it was good enough when David did it, then I’m sure it will be good enough when I do it!

I’m not a good dancer by any means, but when I’m having a good day I like to dance around and sing and let others know it! When I’m having a bad day, I can dance around and act silly and suddenly things don’t seem quite so bad (it helps that I usually get a smile or a laugh from my 6 month old daughter when I do it).

God blesses us with so many things each day, and we should thank Him and praise Him for those things…and when I praise Him, I like to show Him how thankful I am for the days I have been given with my family here on earth.

So, however you want to do it today…show Him your praise! Sing at the top of your lungs on the way to work or while playing with your kids (kids almost always like to sing loud!) or dance while you pray…just make sure you are praising the Lord!

And when you wake up every morning just remember to Shake it for the one that made you!


  1. Awesome! This is great. I will remember that when I wake each morning! I love you!

  2. What a great way to remember to praise God daily, even in the bad days :)
