Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

A Joyful Jump
Jump for Joy
We had arrived early the
summer of 1976 prior to beginning our Bible School Training.There was a lot happening in Tulsa Oklahoma,
and we decided to take advantage of special meetings through out the area.
An advertised meeting and the
name, “W.V. Grant,” was recognized from books and News letters, caught our eye

I have seen little children
leap and jump for joy over just being so very happy, but this was a first for
us.We looked at each other and made a

My knees will not allow me to
do much jumping these days, but I can sway and step from one foot to the other

Miriam danced before the Lord
and others joined in with her.
King David danced wildly
before the Lord and embarrassed his wife.
I do hope this does not
embarrass you, but the Bible says to Clap your hands all ye people, shout, sing
and worship the Lord.
Our body does want to participate
where there is the sound of good worship music and a gentle jump for joy will do
us all good.
