When I meditated on the word Guidance, I kept seeing “dance” at the end of the word. I remember reading that doing God’s will is a lot like dancing.
When two people try to lead, nothing feels right. The movement doesn’t flow with the music, and everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.
When one person realizes that, and lets the other lead, both bodies begin to flow with the music.
One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the back or by pressing lightly in one direction or another.
It’s as if two become one body, moving beautifully. The dance takes surrender, willingness, and attentiveness from one person and gentle guidance and skill from the other.
My eyes drew back to the word Guidance. When I saw “G” I thought of God, followed by “u” and “i.” “God,” “u” and “i” “dance.” God, you and I dance.
My prayer for you today is that God’s blessings and mercies be upon you on this day and everyday.
May you abide in God as God abides in you.
Dance together with God, trusting God to lead and to guide you through each season of your life.
“You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing…” Psalm 30:11
The above, “Learning To Dance,” came to me in an email from a friend. It captured my attention, and, perfectly put into words what I’ve felt all along! It reminds me of my own journey with God, and how similar it truly is to “learning to dance.” It has been a constant learning process–relearning–stumbling and falling–getting up–and starting all over again.
It’s the reason I titled my blog, “Dancing With God.”
The above post, “Dancing With God,” so beautifully expresses what our journey looks like as we willingly learn to trust, and surrender to the gentle and skillful guidance of God.
God bless and I hope you dance!
