Spiritual Disciplines and God’s Heartbeat

“The disciplines require us to do things, but not for doing’s sake.  This doing leads us into being in the presence of God so that we can sense the rhythm of God’s heartbeat underlying the surface rhythms of daily life.  And being with God is what shapes us, more and more, into the image of God originally planted within us and redeemed in Christ.”
-Richard Foster (Life with God, p. 136)
