Thought for the Day 6/30/2017

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 and lets the other lead, both bodies begin to flow with the music.     One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the other 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. Do not ask the Lord to guide your footsteps, If you are not willing to move your feet.

For You are my rock and my fortress; and for 
 Your name's sake you LEAD and GUIDE me; 
  ... for You are my refuge. 
   Into Your hand I commit my spirit.  
-Psalm 31: 3, 5

Get up in the morning and pray for
  the Lord's blessings....pray for guidance.

      the little things kind of slide in.

Thought for the Day 6/27/2017

It is not my responsibility in what form God answers
 my questions for guidance. That is quite safe in His hands.
  The only thing that I know is that God is light,
   and not darkness. Those who trust Him,
     He does not leave in darkness.
       He is a very, very good shepherd.
-Corrie ten Boom 

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want...
  Even though I walk through the valley of the
    shadow of death, I will fear no evil,
      for You are with  me...... 
-Psalm 23:1, 4

-Kathy Boevnik

Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and
