You expect to encounter God in church, the Bible, morning devotionals, quiet walks, prayers, meditation and beautiful music. But you can also experience God in the pain, heartache, chaos, injustice and messiness of life. So if you want to be touched by God in life-changing ways, enter the grief of loving parents whose child has died, the prisoner trying to change his life or the poverty of the inner city as families struggle to feed their children, keep them safe and help them claim a better life. Experiences are not spiritual because they make you feel good. Experiences become spiritual whenever God is present.
