#MusicMonday Shake by MercyMe #MMShake #Christian #Dance

This is SO a great song to kick off your Monday, if you are a baby Christian like me.

The first time I heard Shake by MercyMe I was very excited. I didn’t know they made Christian music I could swing dance to! This song just makes me wanna jump up and move my feet!

One of the things I love most about this song is the “fun” aspect. I find that Christianity can be a very serious business. How could it not? And though I love and appreciate slow and serious music, I’ve always had a soft spot for the fun stuff.

Thank you God for making this thing called dancing. It’s SO fun!

Anyway, all this growing in faith is challenging some of my ideas of what is fun to me. Some music I used to like makes me feel uncomfortable now to sing along with lyrics. Most television shows make me cringe. Even aimless flirting has lost its luster.

C.S. Lewis says God is like a dentist that doesn’t just fix the one thing you went to Him for… He starts poking around for other signs of decay and neglect. Ouch.

And so in many ways, I have been trying so hard to be what God wants me to be, I miss out on the giddy excitement of remembering that because He saved me, I am free. My salvation cannot be undone. Tweet this

That’s pretty exciting! That’s pretty cool! Heaven sounds fun!

Woo-hoo! Happy Monday! Let’s dance!

PS: This song is dedicated to Susan Selman. Thanks Friend.

LYRICS

I just can’t believe
Where my life was at
All that I know is that my heart was broken
And I don’t ever wanna go back
Ain’t no explanation
How I saw the light
He found me and set me free
And it brought me back to life

Blame it on the transformation
Changed down to the core
His love is real And I can’t sit still
Cause my name’s not shamed no more

Great God Almighty, gonna change this
Great God Almighty, He gonna change me
You gotta shake, shake, shake
Like you’re changed, changed, changed
Brand new looks so good on you
So shake like you’ve been changed
Come on and shake, shake, shake like you changed
Shake, shake, shake like you changed

Maybe He came to you When everything seemed fine
Or maybe your world was upside down and hit you right between the eyes
No matter when it happened At 7 or 95
Move your feet ’cause you are free
And you’ve never been more alive

You gotta shake, shake, shake
Like you’re changed, changed, changed
Brand new looks so good on you
So shake like you’ve been changed
Come on and shake, shake, shake
Like you’re changed, changed, changed
Brand new looks so good on you

So shake like you’ve been changed
Come on and shake, shake, shake like you changed
Shake, shake, shake like you changed Shake, shake

I feel another dance video coming on…
