5 Minute Friday...Who's leading your dance?

Once again I am joining up with Lisa Jo at tales from a Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday. One word...five minutes...no editing. Today's word is DANCE.

Go:

If you've ever watched any dance competition you know that there needs to be someone who leads. Without that, the couple has no direction and lots of feet will get stepped on. It can almost look like a fight as both partners fight to lead the dance. Serious ballroom dancers don't become good over night. They practice and soon the partners are able to read each other and the dance is flawless.


Our relationship with God is much like a dance. But who's leading? If it's not God, then we have a problem. Our dance will be awkward and not pretty. We need to allow God to lead us. At first it may not be a beautiful thing, but as we learn to follow God's lead, as we practice our dance, we become a thing of beauty. Our dance will become amazing because we are allowing God to lead us. We are allowing Him to guide us through life. Listen carefully and you can hear God asking you..."May I have this dance?" Dance with Him and let Him lead!!!

2 Samuel 6:14
And David danced before the LORD with all his might

  2. It's always those first few steps that are scary, we are unsure of the what is going to happen, that human nature to stay in control just can't be part of dancing. Great points!
