Are you listening?



Thursday nights are sacred in my home.

It's TGIT!


The Thursday night television line up is so good. It starts at 8p and goes through 11p, most weeks.

So what does that mean for the children?

It means don't talk to me unless it's on commercial. It means ask all of your questions before 8p. It means that Thursday is the one night I claim for myself.

Even though the kids know this, there is always someone who forgets the rules...or maybe they just do not care about the rules 🤔

In either event, there is always a question after 8p.

....and one of my daughter's asks her question while the show is NOT on commercial.

That means that I completely miss her question.

I miss it because I am otherwise distracted by the television show.

You know this doesn't just happen during the Thursday night lineup.

Often times God tries to talk to us but we don't hear Him.

We fail to hear Him because we allow distractions to overshadow His voice.

We fail to hear Him because we take time to listen to everything except Him.

We fail to hear Him because we we are in position to hear Him when He speaks.

Reshape your perspective from God's not speaking, to perhaps I'm not always listening.

What can you do to position yourself to hear from God?

One of the things that I do at the end of every calendar year, or at the very, very, very beginning of a brand new calendar year, is take some time to reflect. As I spent some time reflecting on 2018, I specifically took time to reflect on my running journey.

It was such an amazing year. The highlights can be found on my running blog. In a nutshell, there were ups and downs. There were achievements and setbacks. But through it all, there was so many life-transforming moments. One specific date of reflection was October 30. It was a day of wounding, both physically and figuratively.

I had an evening event at work so I decided to start the day with a run. You know, I wanted to get my blood pumping early. The problem was that I waited late in the morning to start, so I decided to do a quick out and back 2-mile run. As I was nearing my finish, I was running at a pretty decent spe…
