Dance With God
« on: November 09, 2007, 02:11:57 AM »

When I meditated on the word Guidance, I kept seeing "dance" at the end of the word. Then, I remembered 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 out of step.  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, pressing lightly in one direction or another.  It's as if two become one body, moving beautifully together.  The dance takes a willingness to surrender, attentiveness from one person, 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, you, and I dance
 
As I lowered my head, I became willing to trust that He will give me guidance. And, once again, God led.   
 
Dance together with God trusting in Him to lead and guide you through each moment of your life. 
 

Here is the Gratitude Dance going around the world…silly, but go ahead and try it!
It may possibly put you in the mood to dance with God, and trust in Him to lead:

May you abide in God as He, abides in you.

Hi jER,

That was lovely. Thank you. It also takes trust on the part of the one following in the dance. Beautiful romantic analogy, very intimate.

Howdy jER,

That was really good, and I saved your post and will forward it to friends and family!!  You were truly inspired with that and I very much enjoyed the video clip.
 
Your comments about "dancing" with our heavenly Father are so appropriate and a great analogy of our spiritual walk!  How cool.  Plus this made me remember all the times I slow-danced with my earthly father... and this brought a tear to my eye.... what wonderful memories!  I am so blessed to still have him with me; he'll be turning 91 soon.

Christ's joy 2 U!
 :)

Alex - "Enthusiasm not only helps us reach for a better understanding, it makes our journey a lot more enjoyable along the way."

Ursula - these are your words from a previous post, and my prayer:
"We are growing here not just in knowledge, but in how we relate to each other."

Janice - "It's all about Family."

Your friend in Christ,

JER

 :D Was that cute.

As a baby "Christian" 35 years ago, I loved this song we sang at a Catholic Charismatic meeting:

We will see Je....sus
We will behold His fa....ce
From the rivers of Life we'll drink
and we'll DANCE all over the pla....ce
Yes, we'll dance.. when we see His Face!

I remember the tune vividly but haven't actually heard it in over 30 years. Don't know if it is scriptural but at that time I was being led from a distant, Old father God type who was mad at me, to this touchable, cares-for-me Brother.

Hi Janice,

I used to dance with my dad too! I had forgotten about that until you mentioned your experience. What a wonderful memory for both of us to hang on to especially since both our dads have Alzheimers now.

With my dad, it was polkas or waltzes, and as a teenager of course I was embarrassed and kept telling him "no, no, leave me alone". But he wouldn't take no for an answer, and up I had to go onto the dancefloor. And he would lead and twirl and have this really proud and happy look on his face, and I would step on his feet several times in my awkwardness. But I totally loved it once I got up there dancing, and at the end of the dance, we would both be laughing and out of breath. He would then escort me back to my seat, kiss my hand with a flourish, and thank me for the dance.

Thanks jER and Janice, this memory has brought a smile to my face today.

I know of an artist here in town and she had painted an o ilpainting of Yeshua and woman in a white long dress dancing. (at the marriage supper of the LORD)  His face was toward her so you couldn''t see it.  We worked together a couple of yrs ago to raise money (and we raised $40,000.00 for the many Gush Katif, Israel residents whom had to be relocated to a tent city several miles away when Palestine took over that I Israeli land...), anyway, the picture was sold at our silent auction for $550.00...it was very nice!
