musings of a hopefilled soul

GUIDANCE

I discovered this writing on guidance, in my files and thought it seemed worth sharing.  The author is unknown.

 

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 and lets the other lead, both bodies being 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.  This statement is what guidance means to me.

 

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 and your family on this day and everyday.  May you abide in Him as He abides in you.  Dance together with God, trusting Him to lead and to guide you through each season of your life.

  2. Thank you for this amazingly insightful and uplifting post! This is an incredible realization, that guidance is like saying to God: Let’s you and I dance. And in dancing with God, we follow His lead. This is so beautiful. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I needed this today.
    Blessings, Gina
