I heard this story March 12th, 2011 at the
memorial service preached by Steve Cloud in memory of Tommy Ray Wilkins...Tommy's e-mail to
his daughter with a long-time dance career:
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
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.
"You changed my mourning into dancing…"
Are you tired of life as it now is for you? He
will accept you just as you are right this second! Consider accepting
