How do you practice listening to God? Do you have any practices/disciplines?
Scripture puts a great emphasis on listening:
James 1:19, "Let everyone be quick to listen and slow to speak."
Jesus, "Let all who have ears to hear, let them hear."

Chew on these questions from Yancey:
How can I slow down?
How can I simplify things?
How can I bring silence into my life?
How can I savor this moment?
How can I speak up? (Tell the truth)
How can I settle in? (Establish roots)
How can I shed my armor and masks?
How can I soften my approach to life?
How can I serve the community?
Props to the Giants. They played a great game. I thoroughly enjoyed a low scoring, defensive match-up. If I was a betting man, I would have lost a lot of bling-bling!

Listening to God is something that I have always struggled with-I am not a person to slow down! Yet when I can (usually in an outdoors setting), the result is wonderful. We really need to start taking time away from all of the "stuff" that crowds our life and focus on God more. That is of course easier said than done!
