Life is a dance. What sets dancing apart from the regular steps we take – dance steps go with a song. Dance and music are inseparable. It’s better to dance than to walk and it’s better to sing than to talk. I know some people would like to disagree and it’s mostly people hung up on talent. We’re watching those talent shows and marvel over powerful vocal performances and see dancers hit the dance floor who don’t seem to have a contract with gravity. Flawlessly in time, their bodies swaying, their feet effortlessly working the floor, dancers are in their element like fish in the water. And the same goes for singers. They hit the notes like there is no tomorrow.
Well, this is not about talent. To dance through life and to sing our song is an attitude, and it begins with the Lord of the universe.
God actually started the song and He danced the first dance. God is the author of music. He invented it.
God always had dance partners, and He sang harmony from the get go when all Three of the Trinity chimed in. The beautiful thing about God dancing and singing is His generosity in inviting all of His creation to the dance floor. At some point in time the Trinity began to call things into being and has been extremely prolific creating ever since. The hustling and bustling world around us is a vivid reminder. Nature swaying to the heartbeat of the universe, the Lord has invited all of us to His dance floor.
God is asking us for a dance. And then, when we say “yes”, He is so happy that He starts singing. He sings over us. He composes a brand-new song, especially created for the occasion. He sings this song because He is happy we’re with Him. He’s glad that we’re dancing with Him. He does not take our trust we put in Him for granted.
Dancing with God, we’re learning the dance steps as we go. Every day is a new dance. Every day we get up and adjust to changes; we never stop learning. The hardest dance steps to learn in this life would be our dance with death. Our last day rolls around, and we’ll dance into a new tomorrow.
Regardless what kind of day we’re facing let’s never forget that God is with us every step of the way.
