Meditating On The Word "Guidance"

When I meditate 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 relaxes 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,

This statement is what guidance means to me.
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.
