When John and I went to the Dance Convention in Indie this past week, we were given (in our registration packet) a paper called “Dancing with God”. Let me share it with you.
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 gently 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 gently guidance and skill from the other.
My eyes drew back to the word Guidance
When I sas “G”: I though 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.
And I hope You Dance!!!
Here are a few more photos from our ever so memorable 3 days at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in Indie. We discovered what a good form of exercise Ballroom Dancing is a few years back. It not only keeps us fit (along with CrossFit and Paleo eating); but it improves our balance and flexibility. It also protects and strengthens our memory, as we constantly use our brain to learn new patterns and techniques. A side benefit, but a huge benefit, has been the new friends we have made. All of the friends in the photo below also went to Indie to the Convention. This was our first time to go.
