When I meditated on the word “guidance,” I kept seeing “dance” at the end of the word. I remember 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 jerky and uncomfortable. When one person relaxes and lets the other lead, both bodes 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, you and I dance. This statement is what guidance means to me. As I lowered my head, I become willing to trust that I would get guidance in my life. Once again, I became willing to let God lead.
