    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 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! This
    statement is what guidance means to me.

    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 and your family on this
    day and everyday. May you abide in Him
    as He abides in you.
    Dance together with God, trusting Him to lead
    and to guide you through each
    season of your life.

    I hope you dance!!!
