For all you dancers!

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.

  1. How thoughtful and thought provoking. I want to read it again and again and let its message just wash over me. How creative! I will never look at the word, “Guidance” the same….ever again. I need to let go more, and let God…..lead during our dance through life together.


  2. What a delightful, visual (easy to remember) inspiration! And since we are one with God, no one can cut in on our dance. Thanks for sharing another happy message!
