Dancing With God

 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.  

 

 As I lowered my head, I became willing to trust  

 that I would get  guidance about my life.  

 Once again, I became willing to let God lead. 

 

 My prayer for you today is that God's blessings  

 and mercies are 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.

  

 This prayer is powerful and there is nothing attached.  

 If God has done anything for  you in your life,  

 please share this message with someone else.  

There is no cost but a lot of rewards;  

 so let's continue to pray for one another.  

 

 And I Hope You Dance !
