Christian Meditation is a quiet time for you to re-integrate and re-calibrate your mind with your body. And re-integrate and re-calibrate your mind and body with God‘s presence with you and in you. Remember the quote from the apostle Paul in Acts 17:28 – In him you live and move and have your being.This episode is a reload of a previous episode with some editing/cuts.If your podcast app is set to skip the silent sections, disable that in your podcast app for this podcast.Christian meditation focuses you on biblical imagery showing how you — your body — utterly depend upon God’s life-giving Spirit at every moment. Paul says, “In him we live and move and have our being” (Act 17:28). Of course most people don’t realize this or think of themselves this way, and even WE live our lives often ignoring God. But regardless whether we acknowledge it or not, it’s God who gives us life at every moment we’re alive. Every cell in our body.Continue to focus on breathing deeply and being aware of and relaxing your whole body with each exhale…Let’s recalibrate our mind and body to reality by imagining this reality and experiencing it in meditation. Imagine every cell in your body being given its life by God’s Spirit.This imagery can bring relaxation and relieve stress from your body.Let’s meditate on the imagery of…Ephesians 5:18 — “Be filled with the Spirit.”It’s an amazing thing to think – the God that created this universe is in me!

Fill every cell in my body!Continue to focus on breathing deeply and being aware of and relaxing your whole body with each exhale…Let’s imagine that now as we focus on a few more areas where we typically hold our tension and anxiety in our body.Your body is filled with God’s Spirit — No fear. No insecurity. No threat.Let’s meditate on the imagery of…Galatians 5:22-23 ESV…The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, [and] self-control.(This is what true holiness is.)Who can you share this podcast with?
