Don't worry about what you don't know. Life's a dance. You learn as you go.
John Michael Montgomery, "Lifes a Dance"

Life with jesus is a divine dance. But we don't have to be a dancer, let alone a good one, before he calls our name, extends his hand, and invites us onto the dance floor.
He doesn't want us to worry about what we don't know. He isn't worried. He knows we will learn as we go.
And that is precisely how we learn - as we go.
We learn to dance by dancing. While we are dancing, we will learn the spontaneity of the dance...and we will learn to love the spontaneity.
That won't happen while we are studying the dance.
Not while we are watching others dance.
It will happen while we are dancing.

(The Divine Embrace, Ken Gire)
