Robert Smith wrote in "Doctrine That Dances":

"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."

When you’re ready to run down the next path of your life’s journey, or the next time you’re not sure which path to take, stop. Throw yourselves into the arms of God--and dance! Let Him lead. He’ll guide. And by the way, after your dance He’ll even bring you home!
