Dancing with God

 A friend sent me the short meditation below on how our relationship with God is like a dance.  I've added the song link because it fits the meditation.  

I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack

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.
This prayer is powerful
and there is nothing attached.
If God has done anything for  you in your life,
please share this message with someone else.
There is no cost but a lot of rewards;
so let's continue to pray for one another.
And I Hope You Dance !
