A Runner’s Thoughts: “Finally, I could see with startling clarity that the time I had spent experiencing pain on a run was outweighed by the amount of time that I felt good about it. I was aglow. I was invincible. I was thinking I might be able to do it again.” (Alexandra Heminsley – Running Like a Girl)
Might we also say this about our faith, our relationship with God? Yes, we do experience pain, struggle, doubt and difficulty but they can be outweighed by the grace, the blessings and the joy we encounter with God. In the glow of God, we become aglow, we become invincible, we want to continue the journey. So, if you are a runner, a walker or someone who moves through life another way, think of your movement as those times when you have a chance to get some clarity in your relationship with God.
When we have some time to pray, when we have a chance even in the exhaustion of the end of a run, a walk to feel aglow in the presence of God, to feel invincible and to continue our journey of faith!
Run, walk, move strong…run, walk, move with God!
