Graceful and Elegant.
Intriguing and smooth.
Well this is how it should look. I am not sure that this is what I appear to be like when dancing, though it is how I would prefer to picture myself.
It is not a talent that I have, but still an art that I enjoy watching.
Watching others dance in the way it was meant to be done brings a sense of peace. Dancing in partnership displays such a cherished moment.
Last week I mentioned how the phrase:
I still got a few more dances with the devil”
brought some amount of truth that was worth pondering further on, with the significant word being “dance”
This word has held a deeper meaning to me since reading a poem some years ago. Poetry done well brings with it the spark of imagination, where the picture of story unfolds leaving a memory that can last a very long time.
This poem managed to do this for me.
I read it several times, each time finding a new truth, new inspiration and a clarity in terms of my goal of what I would like my life to represent.
I do not believe that I could share this with you in any better way other than sharing this poem with you.
As I allow God to guide me to be all that He wants me to be, he then becomes my Guidance officer! As I learn to surrender and be willing for Him to mould and make me to be all that is planned for me, I hope that I will become the display of Grace and Elegance for others to see.
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 be upon you on this day and everyday.
May you abide in God as God abides in you.
Dance together with God, trusting God to lead and to guide you through each season of your life.
This prayer is powerful and there is nothing attached.
And I Hope You Dance.
