Song and dance are the result of an excess energy.
When we are normal we talk,
when we are dying we 
whisper,
but when there is more in us than we contain 
we sing.
When we are healthy we walk,
when 
we are decrepit we shuffle,
but when we are beyond 
ourselves with vitality we dance.

“Many people have a crisis-based relationship with God. They only speak to Him when they’re in trouble. They try to muster their faith when it’s too weak to move God. Then they get mad to God as if it was His fault.” — Lindell Cooley

“But now, this is what the LORD says—
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the LORD, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior”

Isaiah 43:1-3a

I like how it says when not if.
