    Lift Up Your Eyes - Palm Sunday (Holy Week Meditations)

    Lift Up Your Eyes - Palm Sunday (Holy Week Meditations)

    Palm Sunday Meditation
    “Faith is the gaze of a soul…upon a saving God.” - A.W. Tozer
    "I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth." Psalm 121:1-2
    This meditation focuses on Psalm 121, known as a Psalm of Ascent. These Psalms were sung by Hebrew pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem and possibly while ascending the steps of the Temple. It’s remarkable to note, that Jesus and His disciples would have prayed and sung these same scriptures.
    The Psalms have an important place in our prayer life as well!
    When we meditate and pray God’s Word, we are praying and declaring the very heart of God.
    Breathe in and linger awhile in this space, lifting your eyes toward heaven.

    Open The Eyes of My Heart (Seeing 20/20 - A Spiritual Journey)

    Open The Eyes of My Heart (Seeing 20/20 - A Spiritual Journey)

    This is the last podcast of Season 2 - “Seeing 20/20 - Seeing 20/20 - A Spiritual Journey.” When we began this journey, I posed the questions, "What if we could put on spiritual lenses for a clearer viewpoint of the Holy One?" and "Is there really a lens to bring our spiritual vision into focus, allowing us to experience the nearness of God?"
    We had no idea the place the world would be in today, in the midst of a pandemic, causing great anxiety and fear.
    We never know God or see our need for Him as clearly, as when we walk through the valley of trials and darkness.
    God’s Word invites us to “Be still and know Him that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
    God is still on the Throne and in control. Though the world and our circumstances constantly change, the eternal God never does. We can stand quietly and confidently before the Lord God Almighty, exalting His power and majesty. 
    When all else is stripped away, God is always there waiting for us with unconditional love and eternal hope. 
    May this truly be the year of Seeing God’s Love and Presence, with us, more clearly than ever.

    A Glance Toward Heaven (Seeing 20/20 - A Spiritual Journey)

    A Glance Toward Heaven (Seeing 20/20 - A Spiritual Journey)

    Today’s meditation will focus on Psalm 111, a Psalm of praise.
    One of the ways to see God more clearly, is through the practice of gratitude and praise. As we glance toward heaven in praise, we recognize and give our Creator His rightful place of honor in our lives.
    Take a deep breath… becoming aware of God… with you.
    Psalm 111:1-4 - "Praise the Lord! I will thank the Lord with all my heart as I meet with his godly people. How amazing are the deeds of the Lord! All who delight in him should ponder them. Everything he does reveals his glory and majesty. His righteousness never fails. He causes us to remember his wonderful works. How gracious and merciful is our Lord and all his commandments are trustworthy. They are forever true, to be obeyed faithfully and with integrity. What a holy, awe-inspiring name he has! Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom. All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom. Praise Him forever!"

    Breath of The Almighty (Seeing 20/20 - A Spiritual Journey)

    Breath of The Almighty (Seeing 20/20 - A Spiritual Journey)

    "The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life." Job 33:4 ESV
    This is a teaching meditation focusing on breathing as a way of stilling our soul.
    We take about 20,000 breaths a day without even thinking about it. The stresses of life cause our breathing to become more rapid and shallow.
    Many health experts agree, one of the best things we can do for overall health is to change how we inhale and exhale.
    So take a deep breath, exhale slowly, and be still for a moment.

    Peace in the Midst (Seeing 20/20 - A Spiritual Journey)

    Peace in the Midst (Seeing 20/20 - A Spiritual Journey)

    When the world around us feels unsettling, and fear and anxiety attack our souls, it’s easy to run toward fear rather than toward God.
    We have to choose to speak “peace and trust” into our situations.
    This meditation will refocus our vision and thoughts to trusting in God. Through God’s Spirit within us, we have the ability to experience peace in the midst of anxiety.
    "The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe." Proverbs 18:10

    Listening Prayer (Seeing 20/20 - A Spiritual Journey)

    Listening Prayer (Seeing 20/20 - A Spiritual Journey)

    "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me." John 10:27 NIV
    Theologian Rowan Williams says this quote about prayer in his book, Being Disciples-
    "The real problem in prayer is not the absence of God but the absence of us...We are all over the place, entertaining memories, fantasies, anxieties. God is simply there in unending patience, saying, 'When are you going to sit and listen?'"
    When we think of prayer, we most often view it as our communication with God.
    We know prayer is intended to be a 2-way conversation, however, if we’re honest, we do most of the talking.
    Thankfully, God is a patient and understanding listener.
    But God wants to speak to us too.
    Just being present and listening is a form of prayer.
    In the stillness… God can speak into the circumstance of our life.
