God created our muscles to move, and yet Psalm 46:10 calls us to “be still” and know that God is God. Can’t we also know God and soak up God’s love when our bodies are in motion?
Coach, trainer, soccer mom, and Christ follower Wendy R. Lebolt stayed still just long enough to write Made to Move to remind us that we are also called to know God when our bodies are not quiet and still. “My human body is one way God convinces me that God is real,” Lebolt writes. “God is made physical in my day-to-day life.”
Made to Move is a 6-week study for the whole family, designed to help people of all ages know God and see the movement of God in, around, and through us. Each day contains a scripture passage, a reflection, space and questions for response, and an easy-to-follow activity. On weekdays, LeBolt coaches readers and participants to consider what it means to “love the Lord our God with heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbors as ourselves.” The focus for Saturdays is God’s loving obedience and how it shapes and orders our lives. Sundays are set aside for claiming rest and renewal.
Through daily prayer, meditations, and physical activities, Made to Move helps individuals and group participants see the masterpiece God made each of us to be. Let’s do more than go through the motions of having a relationship with God; let’s put our faith, our prayer lives, and our love for God in motion. Indeed God made us to move.
