A little piece I wrote in the book I’m working on:

As I pick up my pace, I notice an interesting reverse correlation between my pace and my breath. The faster I run, the deeper and slower my breath becomes. I need those deep long breaths to fill my body’s increased need for oxygen.

Overlay “breath” with “Spirit” and a profound truth emerges. The faster the body moves, the more I need deep intakes of Spirit.

The more the pace of life increases, the more I need to invest in quiet spiritual time with the God of my understanding to fill my body with strength.
