Have you ever been walking down the street and had the urge to either dance or sing?  I bet you curbed the urge and did nothing because you were afraid someone may see or hear you.  Many people can sing in the shower but shrink back from singing in public.

    A saw a poster once that said, “Sing as if no one is listening and dance as if no one is watching.”  Many of us are too concerned about what others may think of our voice or our actions.  Because of that we tend to not show our true feelings in some situations.  If you have the urge to sing, then sing.  If you have the urge to dance, then dance.

    The Bible doesn’t say to sing the right notes.  In Psalms 100:1 it encourages us to “make a joyful noise.”  We are told in Isaiah 35:6, that after Christ returns, “Then the lame will leap like a deer, the mute tongue will shout for joy.”  There is no reason for us to hesitate on these actions now.  If God wants you to sing, then sing.  If God wants you to dance, then dance.  But don’t do it as if no one is watching, do it as though God is the only one watching.
