The Art of Active Listening

The Art of Active Listening

As I continued my run around the track, I was reminded how I have spent well over 10,000 hours training on a track just like this for the Decathlon at Notre Dame. How each day, I was energized by the daily training, making progress towards my vision of becoming a world class runner. I was reminded how much God has blessed me with those memories, how much he taught me in those hours of training about hard work, perseverance, focus, maintenance of self, and communication with my coach!

Then it occurred to me that my experiences running and training are a mirror of how I experience Him. By showing up every day to work and create, through good communication with the Lord, by movement, He will reveal His vision for me. Active Listening is how I experience the Lord. By action, God will use me to fulfill his vision for my life.
I continued my run painlessly around the track for another 2 miles before returning home to start my day.
