Dancing with the Lord

"I the Lord your God, teach you what is for your good, and lead you on the way you should GO." Isaiah 48:17

Our life is like a DANCE with God. Do we follow where He leads, or do we want to go our own way? I think life would be more beautiful if we followed our partner!!

Some of the best known and most loved dance partnerships include Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, and Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gelsey Kirkland. But there are more contemporary couples on Dancing with the Stars and other dancing competitions who take our breath away when they do their entrancing moves. Even as each individual dancer is super talented, when they dance in harmony, magic happens at a higher level. 

Some may not agree, but one dancer said she needed an extremely strong partner to carry her. She explained that her partner was “more the creator and the source of the work” and she followed his lead. With couple Lorna Feijóo and Nelson Madrigal, Feijóo says there has to be a lot of trust and she loved dancing with Madrigal because he knows her very well. And Madrigal said, “It’s all about relationships.” During dance duets, couples agree there’s a continuing conversation. 

We can compare this with our relationship with God. He is obviously the creator and the source of our life. He is the stronger partner and we should follow His lead, His vision, if we want something beautiful to happen with our life. He knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows our strengths and our weaknesses. He knows what we need to learn and how fast or slow He needs to go to bring out the best in us. And yes, if we keep talking and listening to the Lord, we will enjoy dancing in step with Him!
