You know I love to dance, right? Well, our wonderful friends on the Memories Swing Team offered to teach me the Lindy Hop. And I finally took them up on it one Monday. What a blast!
Because I’ve already learned to dance many different styles, I jumped into the Intermediate Class. I learned the count (6 or 8) and just followed my lead.
If he was strong and confident, our dance went smoothly.
When I danced with one of the less experienced dancers, it was a bit more of a challenge. But it gave me a chance to encourage and bless … mostly with smiles and laughter.
How cool is that?
Chatting with one of the Team members later,
I related my feelings about my first lesson. His reply?
[callout]“You’re a good follow because you aren’t afraid to let go of control.
You don’t fight your lead.”[/callout]
That’s a good idea for all of us. Right ladies?
A man is expected to take the lead in life,
and he’s responsible for the outcome.
Men need to let go of control as well.
They need to give control to the Lord and learn to follow Him.
A bit of wisdom from the dance floor: The psychology of men makes them a good lead in Christian marriage. So, Ladies, let’s not distract our men from the Lord’s leadership by trying to take over the dance. Just smile and enjoy, affirming them when they get it right.
Today’s Thought …
Don’t Fight Your Lead.
It makes warfare much harder on the enemy!
… in order that Satan might not outwit us.
For we are not unaware of his schemes. (2 Corinthians 2:11)
