Yep, you read the title correctly: “Dance with God!”

I’m sure you’re wondering how can one possibly dance with God?

It is through our faith – by trusting Him to lead us – is how we can dance with God.

I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about God’s will for me. Many years ago, I truly believed it was God’s will to be a teacher. I became very passionate in my mission and did as much as I could to help my students learn, improve, and grow. Suddenly that passion changed into a new calling for me. God put in my heart to share Chris and my story of our faith, hope, and love through the most challenging race of our lives. And so I obeyed His call, prayed to Him for guidance, and followed His lead over the next three years to write our story.

The book is finally published and I sit here wondering what God’s will is for me now.  Am I supposed to go back to teaching again? Is this book “Ride On!” going to take me places?

I’m way out of my comfort zone here. I’m the kind of person who likes to be proactive and have a plan. I don’t have a clue on what to do with my life!

Below is a story I found entitled, “Dancing with God.”  I have no idea where I found it or who wrote this beautiful message.  After reading it, I realized that I need to open my arms to God and enjoy the dance as He guides me and leads me in the right direction.

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 with God, trusting Him to lead and guide you [through each part of your race in your life].

And I Hope You Dance!
