Two women. A cross roads. Two paths. One leads to renewed life, strength, and joy. The other leads to a repeat of the pain, disappointments and fear of the past. Which direction will they choose? We all reach a point in our lives where we find ourselves standing at a crossroads. We find ourselves standing in the dark, unsure of which direction we ought to take next. Perhaps a relationship has just ended, or a job was lost, or maybe a great opportunity has been offered, but taking it would require some serious sacrifices. Which direction should be taken? How do we know? And what if we make the wrong move?
When we’re standing in that dark place, some of us panic. Others become angry or discouraged. Very few of us begin to dance. How do we come to a place where we can actually dance in the midst of the darkness? How can we find peace at the crossroads, knowing that we are being guided into the direction of our purpose? Dancing in the Dark is about how to listen and follow the guide of the Spirit as we reach those moments of uncertainty and fear. It is about how to live in faith, how to find joy and the ability to dance through our circumstances, rather than succumb to panic and fear.
In the opening chapter of Dancing in the Dark, Pamela Antoinette presents us with two parables: the story of one woman who chooses to dance, and that of another woman who returns to what is familiar to her. The rest of the book dissects these parables to uncover life lessons and practical applications for our own moments of darkness. The ability to dance in the dark does not come natural to most of us. But after some understanding of the importance and benefits of dancing, the embarrassment of two left feet can become a thing of the past!
Book Status: Five out of twelve chapters are written. As I work to finish this book, I am simultaneously working to develop a proposal manuscript.
