Reflections from fellow coach Charlie Zimmerman of North Carolina regarding the importance of listening and giving thanks on our journey in life and in coaching as translated from the online devotional d365 Daily Devotionals. Today’s devotional was written by Allison Wehrung, who lives in Oxford, MS, where she’s the campus minister at UKirk Ole Miss.:

Rejoicing in God doesn’t mean life is easy all the time. But what if, everywhere we went, we got into the habit of looking for glimpses of the holy and giving thanks? God speaks to us through the listening ear of a friend on a hard day. God speaks to us through art and music that breathe new perspective into our life experiences. God speaks to us through the little green plant poking up through a crack in the sidewalk. 
How are you listening? How will you respond? How will your questions help others live more fully into their identities as children of Christ?
