I Hope You Dance


I was reading an article in a devotional book (author unknown) that points out that in the word "Guidance" the last part of the word is "Dance". It points out that doing God's will is alot 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.

This article pointed out that the word "Guidance" starts with the letter "G". Could that be for God? Then the next two letters are "u" & "i".

God, u, and i dance. As I finish my devotion today, I want to become more willing to trust God for the guidance I need so desperately. Once again, I become willing to let God lead.

I Hope You Dance!

Hi Ginger, thank you for stopping by my blog. I really liked your little write on Guidance. It was very simple, yet so clear. Keep writing in your simple style. I have yet to check out your husband's blog. Will do soon.
