Whether we realize it or not, marriage is a dance — so if we’re married, that means we’re dancers (metaphorically speaking, of course)!
How are you relationally dancing with your spouse these days? Are you bumping into one another or gracefully spinning around the dance floor?
In this Couple’s Conversation, we’ll help you learn about a common tension couples face in their marriage dance… and the secret to overcoming bruised toes so you can learn to dance more gracefully.
After watching the video, take turns asking and answering the following questions together. Listen actively to each other — with gentleness and humility — so you each feel heard and free to share.
- How would you describe our dancing right now?
- What would help us enjoy our dance more?
- What would help us appreciate our differences in a deeper way?
- Put on some music and dance the night away. Try some new moves and enjoy the graceful (or not so graceful) movements.
- Write a letter to your spouse expressing gratitude for how they are different from you and how those differences enhance your life. Read it to them.
- Take a dance class together or jump into an escape room on a double date. Try something new and creative that requires working together.
More Dancing with God
Zephaniah 3:17 (NLT) says:
“For the Lord your God is living among you.
He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”
“Rejoice over you” literally means “dance, skip, leap, and spin around in joy.” God delights when we obey him. When we choose to trust his ways and live in relationship with both him and others according to his design, he dances over us with joy.
Are there any areas in your relationship with God that need adjusting? Are you walking in obedience or do you need to adjust some of your own dance moves to be in line with God’s best for you?
