I am a survivor of extremely severe ritualistic childhood abuse and sadistic systematic torture. Without God's intervention in my life I wouldn't be here - NOW is the time for me to tell MY story by speaking the TRUTH about MY life. I will be silenced no more! On this blog I share MY life, MY healing journey; helpful quotes/stuff I come across and MY thoughts along the way. The more I speak out the more liberated I am from the shame and trauma of the abuse. My broken wings are gradually being restored. This blog has helped me begin to get my voice back and documents the journey God is taking me on to heal me from the trauma and damage caused by that most appalling abuse.

DANCING WITH GOD

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, everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky
When one person realizes that and lets the other lead, both begin to flow with the music
One gives gentle cues, a nudge to the back or 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
Once again I became willing to trust I would get guidance about my life
Once again, I became willing to let God lead
My prayer for you today is that God's blessings and mercies are upon you
On this day and everyday
May you abide in God, as God abides in you
Dance together with God, trusting God to lead and to guide you
Through each season of your life
And keep dancing!!!
