    Default GUIDANCE

    GUIDANCE
    Author Unknown


    When I meditated on the word "guidance", I kept seeing "dance" at the end of the word. I remembered reading somewhere 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 as they run into one another and step on the other's toes. When one person relaxes 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. The two move as one, expressing the music.

    The dance takes surrender, willingness, and attentiveness from one person and gentle guidance, direction and leading from the other.

    My eyes drew back to the word "guidance". When I saw "G," I thought of God, followed by "U" and "I". Which all together could mean "God", "U" and "I", dance. God, you and I dance. When I relax, You, God, lead the dance that is called "my life," and we move as one.

    This statement is what guidance means to me. With this thought in mind, I became willing to trust that I could relax and thereby respond to God's guidance in my life. I became willing to let God lead the dance of my life, and to do so moving as one with the music which He provides.

    “How foolish can you be? After starting your new lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort?”
    Gal 3:3

    Beautiful, like poetry.
    IF you do not realize that the rebirth took place in your spirit then it can be confusing to your mind worshiping GOD standing in front of a physical mirror.

    I agree. God, I, and you all dancing together as one.

    It reminded me of how someone once described the Three of the Trinity as having distinction of function, but at the same time when the Father, Son and Holy Spirit function, they dance together as One, with no separation between them....and that it is into that dance, that they have eternally enjoyed together, that we are now being invited to join in. I like that.
