As a mother and a runner, some of my most intensely personal experiences of God have happened during time when I have also been in the midst of the most intense physical experiences of my life. I felt God’s presence when I was in labor with both of my children, and especially toward the end of the long and difficult birth of my daughter. God meets me in personally significant ways when I am out running, especially when I feel like I am reaching my physical limits. This physical/spiritual connection has helped me understand why we encourage our children to fold their hands and bow their heads to pray or why we lift our hands in worship. Our bodies are made to connect with God.
