I love this image of dancing with God. This God of ours is beyond our comprehension, despite our many ways of trying to capture him like in a freeze frame; by trying to put him in a box so that he meets our expectations. He desires to dance with us. One moment, he is slow dancing. The next minute, he is leading us in a tango. There is no telling which format of dance comes next. We just have to relax and follow the signals that he provides, the signals that help us to stay in step with him today.
He wants us to learn to trust him. Since the ways in which he provides for us are not always within our expectations, we have to learn to let go of our expectations; to be open to his out of the box ways of helping.
Spend some time with the Holy Spirit today, and ask him to teach you how to dance with him. When you feel like you are stepping on his toes or taking back the lead, ask him to help you re-engage in the process of following him. Trust in him. He will not fail you. So, if you feel like he is failing, open your line of sight. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you what he is doing so that you can trust him all the more.
