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 this, and lets the other lead, both bodies begin to flow with the music. One gives gentle cues, perhaps 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 willingness, surrender 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.
