A Meditation on God’s Steadfast Love That Endures Forever with Psalm 136
The purpose of Christian Meditation for A Bigger Life is to help 21st-century Christians in the always distracted digital age — to connect with God with your whole being — including your body — and to wire into your brain the reality of that embodied connection in each moment. And I think most of us as Christians are often living unconsciously anxious and tense lives with a kind of disconnection between our body and mind, and disconnection between our body and God’s Spirit. Where our “Christian faith” has become almost exclusively about certain beliefs rather than an embodied experience with God’s Spirit who is always 100% present with us and in us in the NOW.

God’s steadfast love — enduring love — forever love is focused on YOU 100%, without being any less focused on anyone else, because he’s infinite. His love is infinite. No matter how much God’s love endures with you, there is an infinite amount forever available to you. As vast as the universe is, so too is the steadfastness of God’s forever love for you.
Psalm 136:1–9 ESV
1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.
2 Give thanks to the God of gods, for his steadfast love endures forever.
3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords, for his steadfast love endures forever;
4 to him who alone does great wonders, for his steadfast love endures forever;
5 to him who by understanding made the heavens, for his steadfast love endures forever;
6 to him who spread out the earth above the waters, for his steadfast love endures forever;
7 to him who made the great lights, for his steadfast love endures forever;
8 the sun to rule over the day, for his steadfast love endures forever;
9 the moon and stars to rule over the night, for his steadfast love endures forever.
Christian Meditation is a quiet time for you to use your biblically guided imagination to envision the reality of God’s steadfast, enduring, forever love filling your body as his temple (1 Cor. 6:19). Your body is a physical presence of God’s steadfast, enduring, forever love on earth.
