A friend of mine shared this with me a few days ago after suffering the loss of his beloved wife. She sent this to him the day she was involved in a serious car accident. He has found a great deal of peace from the words...

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 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! 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.

I hope you dance!!!
