Dancing With God

by Charles Cherry

Michael R. sent me this today, and I liked it, so I thought I would post it here.

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 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.
