Dancing With God

Doesn't Everyone Love to Dance...

I found the wonderful little story and a friends
Notes on FB

Dancing With God (author unknown)

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.

What lovely inspiration for the day. Guidance! More people need to ak for guidance rather than rushing head strong into the world with no direction. They wind up crashing into everyone around them and causing such chaos along the way. And in Kuwait, this could also be a literal translation because its every man for himself out there. I much prefer to stay home, contemplate and wait for guidance. Blessings to you! Have a beautiful Saturday. :) Tammy

Oh Deborah, your paintings and creations truly are beautiful! God has certainly gifted you with such talent. I checked out your etsy shop and was amazed. I love watercolor and pen and ink. I still am learning but I believe watercolor is my favorite. Your designs are gorgeous and I love the necklace tile pendants.

Thank you so much for leaving my a comment on my Show Some Creativity Saturday post. I used to have Mr. Linky attached, but had few link up that way, so decided just to use the comments for linking. I truly want to give bravery for others to share their creative talent for the Lord. Thank you Deborah.
