It takes a conscious effort on my part to meditate on God's word, to ask God to "Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in [his] law" (Psalm 119:18 NIV). I do this by combining my discipline of running with my discipline of faith.
I often read devotionals before I go for a run. With God's word on my mind and in my heart, I'm able to contemplate the passage of scripture I've read and open myself up to what God is trying to say to me. The rhythm of running encourages a back and forth dialogue that isn't all about me.
