"Then maidens will dance and be glad, young men and old as well."
"Let them praise His name in the dance: Let them sing praises unto Him with the timbrel
and harp." Ps. 149:3
Dancing With God
When I meditated on the word Guidance, I kept seeing "dance" at the end of
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
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 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.
