In my life-long journey with God, I have come to understand that our relationship with God emerges over time as a dance. At first we try to deny that a dance is necessary, or even possible, so we go it alone (so we think). Then, when we realize that we are not alone on this journey, we try to lead - to tell God what to do and how to do it - only to stumble because of our own efforts. If we persevere long enough, we discover that we are, indeed, in the midst of a dance with the creator of the universe and the true lover of our soul. But we were never designed to lead this dance. Rather, we are made and called to follow as he leads. It's only when we surrender to this truth that we begin the journey toward spiritual maturity. This blog is about that journey.
