Would you like to dance with Jesus?
My Uncle Bob sent me this message along with the image and ...I loved it.
I wanted to credit the author so I googled it and found a site called John Mark Ministries.
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 gentle guidance and skill ...
My eyes drew back to the word GUIDANCE.
When I saw "G": I thought of God, followed by "U" and "I"
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 this day and every day.
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.
Isn't that beautiful? It reminded me of a video I had seen on YouTube that seemed to act out this dance with God.
In our flesh, we often fight Him and want to lead. We want to be like everyone else because it can be hard to be different.
Are you willing to trust Him, surrender to His will and ...abide in Him?
Our dance with Jesus will be different from the world around us.
But He is worth it!
