I Hope You Dance



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 be 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,   for prayer is one of the best gifts we can receive.  

 There is no cost but a lot of rewards;   so let's continue to pray for one another.  

 And I Hope You Dance


I'm not sure who wrote this poem, but I created this page at a difficult time in my life.  Mom had just passed on and there were other stress issue's in my life, like an IRS audit. (it came out just fine, but ohhhh the hours of unpaid time it took!) And there was more….  The other helps I had were listening to Joyce Meyers podcasts and reading the daily posts on hazelden.org, All 6 of them. I still do.  In fact, I think it should be required reading in our schools. If you're in a difficult chapter take quiet time and find something to smile and laugh at.  God bless.
