A friend forwarded this to me in an email today. Wow, how beautiful this is…and how I do know about the herky jerky nature of not following well! In fact, just this morning, I played with titles for my new book and I landed on Stumbling into Light as it has not been a dance for me. How wonderful this message is! If anyone has attribution, please let me know!

Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.”

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
Gentle guidance and skill .
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.
Interceding in prayer is one of the best gifts
we give can receive.
There is no cost but a lot of rewards;

So let’s continue to pray for one another.

And I Hope You Dance !
