Turn Around Anointing - Part 2 - I Will Dance as David Danced

Look what my friend Brenda painted. She named it after reading this post. I just wanted to share it here. It makes my heart sing! Thanks for sharing this with me, Brenda. <")>><

"So David went there and brought the Ark of God from the house of Obed-edom to the City of David with a great celebration. 13 After the men who were carrying the Ark of the Lord had gone six steps, David sacrificed a bull and a fattened calf. 14 And David danced before the Lord with all his might, wearing a priestly garment. 15 So David and all the people of Israel brought up the Ark of the Lord with shouts of joy and the blowing of rams’ horns." ~ 2 Samuel 6:12-15 NLT

I will CELEBRATE before the LORD!

Seven years ago - on 8/2/03 - in a conference “HOPE for Tomorrow”, I experienced one of the most joyful moments of my entire life! I was finally set FREE! My relentless sobbing, in the arms of two powerful prayer warriors, was turned to JOY! Pure JOY! In an instant I filled the air around me with Holy Laughter! From a whimpering little child – as the powers of DARKNESS pushed against my fragile frame – I was instantly SET FREE.It was a God – ordained moment of AUTHORITY over my life that lifted Satan’s hidden hand of bondage. Marty, the prayer team’s coordinator saw my struggle from the platform. She walked right up to me and asked the warriors, “What are we were dealing with?” They named off a few demonic strongholds over my life and when she heard ‘REJECTION’….she said, “aha… the BIG ONE”. She pointed a discerning finger in my face and spoke these powerful SEVEN words over me …

“STOP crying! You don’t get to cry!”

I looked up at her and instantly stopped my whimpering and pushing against the mighty warriors that were struggling to keep me upright. It all came to an end with those SEVEN powerful words. How amazing is that! “I don’t get to cry?”

“NO YOU DON”T GET TO CRY! You are a daughter of the MOST HIGH KING! You don’t get to cry.”

And with that AUTHORITY - a lifetime of whimpering deep inside, bellowed forth as a bolt of laughter. The WEIGHT was GONE! The indescribable HEAVINESS was GONE!

Marty had no way of knowing, that those were the very words that my mama use to say to me when you spanked me - she'd come back into the room and tell me to stop crying! Seriously!

So I learned to cry inside.

Imagine, this mighty prayer warrior - saying the exact words to me that had forced me into a SILENT BONDAGE for 30 0r 40 years.


He knew ~ and He deposited into Marty's spirit - the specific anointed WORDS that He was going to use TO SET ME FREE. Imagine that! Both were spoken with AUTHORITY - mama's and Marty's - but one ushered in bondage - while the other simply set me FREE! It took me a year or more to actually realize that Marty's AUTHORITATIVE WORDS were the exact words that served to lock me up behind those doors of REJECTION.

God is so PERSONAL !

that He can use the very thing
Only God
could turn such an ugly thing around
and make it beautiful - in His hands.



With many others who were also set free that night, I danced like David danced – in the isle of the church. That was my first and only time I ever danced in public! Nothing could have held me down! Ever since that time….I have become a wild worship warrior in my private sanctuary. Corporate worship now draws me to the center circle…the throne room of God…where His GRACE settles on me, in the company of like-minded people, as I lift my heart and hands to honor HIM for…



“In the merging of heart and mind and will an oneness results that only those who experience it can even dimly realize” ~ God Calling Devotional
I chose SEVEN years ago – to Praise Jesus in all circumstance – that is my PURPOSE! - to bring HONOR and GLORY to His name – not mine! That doesn’t mean that I don’t fail occasionally – even quite occasionally – in this season. But my mind, heart and will are focused on praising HIM. Satan can have a ‘hay dance’ in my head – but by the end of the day – he’s been ousted from the barn!

Thank God for the ‘NEW DAY’ Anybody out there know what this ‘hay dance’ looks and feels like? Of course you do! Satan never stops dancing.

But God….

Because of my Redeemer, Jesus Christ, I am not that frightened – powerless – helpless little girl. I am the daughter of the MOST HIGH KING! – a Princess Warrior! – Strong in the Lord. His JOY – His DELIGHT in me – is my STRENGTH! Greater is HE that is within me than he that is within the world. I still dance when I hear this song! That same JOY rises in me and lifts me to a higher place. This song is an ‘altar’ – memorializing my deliverance & freedom from demonic strongholds - through Christ Jesus, MY KING!

We are positioned for VICTORY, and not defeat! Praise His Holy Name!

So get up out of your chair and DANCE with me! Let's CELEBRATE before the Lord! Great things He hath done in all of our lives!

4th annual gospel music workshop in Poznań, Poland


  1. "Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;" Psalm 30:11

    Thank the Lord we serve a God of all comfort and mercy!


  2. Yes O! It is good to praise the Lord! There is nothing as sweet and pleasurable as letting go before our Creator! Whow!

    I join you in that dance my sister! God is a Faithful God! Halleluya!

  3. wow...there isn't anything as amazing as the touch of Him to give hope and free...

  4. Love the phrase, "satan can have a hay dance in my head-----but........at the end of the day, he has
    been ousted from the barn!" You go girl!!!!!
    Thank God for a new day.

  5. I can relate. I had a spirit of rejection cast out several times, and now...I'm struggling with it again. It's so encouraging to hear that you overcame that struggle. Could you please pray for me, Patrina? Everything is being stripped away, and I'm barely hanging on...

  6. "HALLELUJAH". That we would all be as 'undignified' as David.
    All 'spirits' must bow the knee to the God who is within you - Princess Warrior! So dance like David and give our Mighty God all the praise!
    Praising with you (and scoot over cuz I'm dancing too).

  7. When you praise & dance unto thy lord, he would turn your predators into preys & all your blessings that were held by the predators would be set free & dance back into your life....filling you with so much calm......i know because am a testimony to that...l love dancing Patrina & throw caution to the wind when in the church....so my dear friend.....i rejoice with you as we dance in one harmony before our creator...*smiling*...how is dad?

  8. Apparently I remain part of the "frozen chosen," Patrina so can't quite go where you do but with all my heart rejoice in your renewal and am so grateful for all my dancing sisters.

    I have thought of you often as you shared your tender and painful story regarding your father. May the grace of God's Spirit which you have received continue to brood over you and your home protecting your heart and mind.

  9. Thanks for all your visits! For picking up the pencil - and for dancing with me in celebration of the good things our God has done in our lives. I wish I could meet you all and we could have a worship jamming session before the KING. SOMEDAY!!!

    hugs to all of you and God bless you with FAVOR!
    Patrina <")>><

  10. I'm celebrating and dancing with you even if it is on one leg and jumping from the inside!

    My knee went out two days ago - BUT GOD.....

    This was a truly awe inspiring post to celebrate the goodness of our God and your intended victory that day when He brought you out of great darkness into His marvelous light!!!


    Those were some additional PRAISE utterances!!

    Dancing with you in JOY, friend!


  11. I am so moved and encouraged by this post. I am so happy about what the power of God can do.

    There is definitely reason to praise God in all circumstances. You chose right. May you continue having reason to praise God and dance like David...

  12. Patrina:

    First... HAPPY BIRTHDAY yesterday! I will never forget that your birthday is the same as our daughter, so you will always get an extra special prayer on that day!

    Dancing like David...and David didn't dance all day every day for the rest of his life... neither will we, BUT... something was changed in your heart on that day, and you were set free... THAT will never change either!!

    Love you and continue my prayers for you and 'dad', for renewed strength and daily needs.



  13. It's been a long time since I've been part of such corporate, anointed worship & dancing. Thank you for taking me there tonight. Thank God for the freedom we know in him.


  14. Thanks be to God for His indescribable gifts in all of us! Thanks for dancing with me! I miss corporate worship so much! I appreciate all your visits and your prayers. And please know that you are always in my thots and prayers. You guys are the cream of the crop ...or the cream in my coffee...or the cream in the middle of my oreo....that's just to say - I appreciate all of you - YOU'RE just the SWEETEST circle of FRIENDS!

    Let's keep DANCING!
    Love and hugs to all
    Patrina <")>><

  15. what a wonderful encounter. one of
    my favorite songs is , "and i'l become
    even more undignified than this!"
    which is like king david.

    dance on!

  16. Thanks Lea for that song by David Crowder. I have never heard it - don't get to church - remember?

    I found a video and placed it on my page tonight. I like it too - partial to the other one as it was the one I danced to that night. BUT this makes me want to dance too.

    For my own purposes, I'm placing the lyrics here. Again, thank you!

    Patrina <")>><

    Undignified by David Crowder
    I will dance
    I will sing
    To be mad
    For my King
    Nothing Lord
    Is hindering
    This passion in my soul
    And I'll become
    Even more undignified than this
    Some may say
    It's foolishness
    But I'll become
    Even more undignified than this
    Leave my pride
    By my side
    And I'll become
    Even more undignified than this
    Some may say
    It's foolishness
    But I'll become
    Even more undignified than this
    Than this
    La, la, la, la, la, HEY!
    La, la, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la, la, HEY!
    La, la, la, la, la
    It's all for You my Lord!

  17. I just love this post, Patrina. You really speak of things in a way that my heart can connect with you.

    Yes, Rejection is really a big fat lie that the enemy wants us to believe, because it is the very opposite of what is on the heart of God!

    How it made me smile to hear about your whimpering transformed to a hug bellowing laughter - a real slap in the face of the enemy!

    Praise God for you, dear Patrina... and in my spirit I am dancing with you!


  18. Your testimony reminds me of Jesus' words in John 8:31-32 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

    The Truth set you free from the bondage of Sin. Praise the Lord!

  19. Hi, Grace and peace, always!
    Congratulations for the great blog.
    Since I'm following now.

    In Jesus, who taught us to share.

  20. Dearest Patrina, What a warrior you are! The most FUN praying is "DANCING to the Lord"! Dancing in worship to God is a form of powerful intercession - and I think you know this.

    Thank you, thank you for sharing your heart! What a blessing you are. I read every word, part 1 and 2 and appreciate your openness - God is using your humble, honesty. YOU are the kind of person God needs.

    Remember as you care for your dad - it ain't crying time - it's time to GO DANCE to the Lord ((whenever you get a break! (I know, easier said than done, and I ADMIRE you!))

    You are God's property and NO TRESPASSING of the enemy allowed. Not even in your head. Right!

    I love the song you posted, I love to dance to the Lord.

    I'm speaking up for my new friend - Don't come at Patrina with a leash - she's out of the box - forever!!!

  21. Patrina, visit my blog, there is a gift for you! Blessings.

  22. I'm learning, still trying to 'continuously' praise God.


  23. I believe it and I know it...dancing came because the shackles came off your feet.

    I can't wait until the Body comes to that place where there is such a fire in the place, such freedom and liberty, that we all dance in the Spirit, as you did that day. It really should be happening all the time! There is coming, I believe, a season where He will unleash His power in greater measure. Better to have those joggers, or dancing shoes, (or ready to go bare feet) close by. LOL!

    Bless you...

  24. Thinking of you today.......... We have had another major change in our lives again and my mind goes to those blog friends of mine that are going through similar experiences. We had to put my mom in a Psychiatric hospital this past Thursday to try and get her settled down since Dad died.. They will keep her 7-14 days and get her medicine adjusted where she can live a "normal" life..... Then she will go to a nursing home not far from here.... What a painful summer..... I am looking forward to the season change...

    Praying for you this morning and praying you are well....

  25. It's so nice to have you visiting and writing again, Patrina! I LOVE this song and use to sing it often! I would like to physically dance right now, but I wrenched my neck!I am dancing on the inside thought!

    God bless, sister!

  26. Just came back to say that thanks to all of your prayers, I'm back on my feet and dancing like David. (LOVE that gorgeous picture!)

    Have a joyful time with the Lord, Patrina, and may He shower you with blessings as you walk the road of grace before Him...

  27. Wonderful! The power of God is all it takes!!

  28. Hi Patrina!
    Tank you for always inspiring my heart, for letting God use you.
    You are loved.
    Hope you have been well.
    God bless you so much.

  29. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Just beautiful . . . let's all dance!!!

  30. Dancing with you sis! God is good. No matter how much side-steppin' the enemy attempts, CHRIST IS GREATER. Crying about His majesty are the only tears we should not be able to hold back--tears of joy.

    I agree with Michelle that it is so nice to have you visiting and commenting again. I've been meaning to stop by but I know that when I come here I like to take my time.

    I thought about you during my quiet time with the Lord this last Thursday morning. I remembered how you explained having to wear the earphones set up with a frequency sound at times in order to tune out all other noices. So true my friend. I so get that. I was sitting there and covered my ears and as I heard my breathing with all other noices shut out, I was reminded of how wonderful that silence is at times. Don't get me wrong, I love other sounds, especially music and the voices of my children, but I so need that silence at times when the distractions and demands of life are simply way too loud.

    Love you sis!!! Dance, dance, dance...

  31. Hi Patrina, stopped by to thank your visit in my blog O Reino em nós (The Kingdom of us) here in Brazil. And you said you could not read it and right out of me preocupuO translator did not work?

  32. Patrina,
    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my story.
    I appreciate it :-))

    Have a wonderful weekend!


  33. Patrina:

    You are in my thoughts and prayers in a special way today, both you and dad. Just know there are many lifting you up right now, for strength and grace each day.

    Big hugs!


  34. A truly encouraging post. I needed this. Blessings.


Thanks for picking up the pencil...

May the grace
of the Lord Jesus Christ,
and the love of God,
and the fellowship
of the Holy Spirit ...
be with you all.
