Forward Friday: Finding God in the Physical

This week we talked about how I learned to find God not in the voice in my head but in the voice of a thousand mundane, ordinary, regular, unexceptional, physical things that mean that I’m ALIVE and DOING something outside in the world with other people.

This weekend, take some time to reflect on the past week, month, or year of your life.  You could journal, go for a walk, or share with a friend.

When did you feel most connected to God?

What activities, events, or movements created space for that connection to take place? 

Were you in your head or in your physical reality?

If you’re having trouble getting started, I highly recommend Miles to Run Before We Sleep: Step-by-Step Meditations and Reflections toward a Life of Persevering, Risk-taking, Justice, Mercy, and Humility by Tim Hoekstra.

Tim has an amazing ministry and life story to share, and my husband and I were very honored to have been married by him last April.  I’m excited to start Tim’s devotional this weekend and may be sharing some insights here in the coming weeks.
