The phrase “Fill me with your spirit, Lord” popped into my head while I was running this morning, and kept repeating, almost like a mantra. At my church women’s retreat yesterday, we had the discussion that sometimes repetitive exercise, like running, can have the benefits of meditation – point made today.
As I let the experience wash over me, almost like God’s spirit was filling me and splashing out, I felt so grateful. For the beautiful fiery sunrise. For my family and friends. For my church family. For my work and my writing. For my faithful Lord.
I was almost in tears with the emotions I felt as I ran along just breathing in the spirit. Thank you Lord for all my blessings. Help me to be a blessing today.
