When Jesus said, “Follow me,” he was asking me to dance.
Following Jesus is a lot like dancing. In fact “guidance” contains the word “dance.”
When I let Jesus lead me, I find the flow of forward movement graceful, or grace filled.
When I try to lead, everything becomes jerky and his toes get stepped on. A lot.
I appreciate the gentle cues my Dance Partner gives—a light press in one direction or a whisper in my ear. Isaiah 30:21 says it this way:
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
I wonder what those around me observe? Do they see my life as one of jerky movements or do they see a graceful woman dancing with Jesus?
I’m sure they’ve seen both. But I hope the older I get the better dance partner I become.
My goal—to have others learn how to dance gracefully with the Lord of the Dance by watching me dance with Jesus.
