We want to use silence as part of our meditation.Biblically guided meditation and relaxation uses your imagination to focus on your body-mind connection. It helps you imagine and experience your connection with God even at the cellular level. It focuses you on how your body depends upon God’s life at every moment. Begin to take in deep, slow breaths and with each exhale relax the muscles in your body a little bit more. Each slow, deep breath. This is a time for you to meditate and focus your mind and your body on the life-giving, peace-giving presence of the I AM. There'll be other times to do things. To fix things. Think about things. To work on things. To organize things. To talk to people. Plan things. You can do all that later. But for now put all that aside and focus all your thoughts on God being present with you 100% — focused on you 100% — without being any less present and any less focused anywhere else. He is the Giver of your life. The Source of comfort and peace. Shalom. This is a time to listen and to speak to your whole person, including your body.As you’re breathing and imagining and experiencing your complete dependence on God’s breath/Spirit in every cell of your body — your necessary connection with God even at the cellular level…Let’s meditate on this…Acts 17:28 (NIV) ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’Imagine this reality. Every part of your being — every cell in your body — depends upon God to live and move and have your being.Let’s meditate on this…Colossians 1:16-17 (NIV)For in him all things were created…all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.Imagine this reality. Every part of your being — every cell in your body — depends upon God to live and move and have your being. Imagine surrendering your entire being to God’s will — God’s care — every cell in your body. Every anxiety in your heart. Giving it all to him. Trusting it all into his hands. He created you. There is no life apart from him. So surrender your whole being to him.Who can you share this podcast with?
