Once upon a time, I went to a Colombian restaurant with a group of friends. It was a weekend night, and there was a live band playing. Customers started to trickle to the dance floor, and soon enough, there was a good number of people swaying to the rhythm and showing off their moves.
One of my friends, the only Colombian in our party asked me if I wanted to dance. “Uhm, yes, BUT I have never danced any Latin dance in my life!” Especially not in front of all these people, I thought to myself. But he said, “It’s okay, you’ll do great.” And so it was, that I followed him to the dance floor not knowing whether I was about to fall over terribly or glide gracefully.
To my surprise, it appeared that I could dance! My partner led me so well that I looked like a pro – I felt like a pro! There were twists and turns, and even dips! I was utterly amazed. I had so much fun and even danced two different types of Latin dances without knowing how to! I simply moved with my friend and yielded to his lead.
Is God inviting you to dance a new dance with Him? One you’ve never danced before? God isn’t asking you to dance because you know how to dance – He is asking you to dance because HE knows how to dance, and He also knows how to GUIDE you to dance like a pro! You don’t have to know how! The most important thing is that He who is inviting you CAN dance. If you will just move with Him and yield to His LEAD, you will find yourself dancing and swirling with such delight as you have never imagined!
Give Him your hand and get grooving!
