    Jesus Anointed and Betrayed - Holy Wednesday (Holy Week Meditations)

    Jesus Anointed and Betrayed - Holy Wednesday (Holy Week Meditations)

    Jesus Anointed and Betrayed - Holy Wednesday Meditation
    Matthew 26:6-13 NIV – (Jesus Anointed at Bethany)
    "While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of Simon the Leper, a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.
    When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. “Why this waste?” they asked. “This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.”
    Aware of this, Jesus said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me. When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.”
    This extravagant act symbolized Jesus was Christ, a title meaning “anointed one.” Anointing the head of Jesus was symbolic of anointing a King.
    God sees the desire and motives of our hearts. And every act of love, faith, sacrifice and obedience is recognized and remembered by our Creator.
    Also on this day, the Jewish leaders plot against Jesus, and Judas agrees to betray Him. "Then one of the Twelve—the one called Judas Iscariot—went to the chief priests and asked, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver him over to you?” So they counted out for him thirty pieces of silver. From then on Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over." Matthew 26:14-16
    Jesus was betrayed by a friend in his inner circle.
    We have all felt the sting of betrayal. And we have all stumbled, wandered and betrayed our Lord in one way or another.
    In this space, allow the Holy Spirit to search your heart…

    Trust In God - Holy Tuesday (Holy Week Meditations)

    Trust In God - Holy Tuesday (Holy Week Meditations)

    "I Am The Way, The Truth, and The Life. No one can come to the father except through me." - John 14:6 NIV
    On Holy Tuesday, the religious leaders tried to discredit Jesus' power and ultimate authority.
    But Jesus clearly states his deity and authority in John 14:6.
    He is the way, the truth and the life. He died so that we can have personal access to the Father.
    Jesus invites us to trust in Him. Silence and solitude is a place of resting and trusting in God.
    We invite you to pause for a few moments of silent reflection.
    "Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Put your hope in the Lord. Travel steadily along his path." - Psalm 37:7&24

    The Power of Prayer - Holy Monday (Holy Week Meditations)

    The Power of Prayer - Holy Monday (Holy Week Meditations)

    On Monday of Holy Week, Jesus tells his disciples – “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, 'May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and it will happen. You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.” - Matthew 21:21-22
    Jesus suffered so all people, his entire creation, could be set free.
    Lift up your prayers, in faith, for yourself, your family, your community and the world.
    "Save me, O God. I pray to you, O Lord, in the time of your favor; in your great love, O God, answer me with your sure salvation.
    Answer me, O Lord, out of the goodness of your love; in your great mercy turn to me. Do not hide your face from your servant, answer me quickly, for I am in trouble. Come near and rescue me.
    I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.
    Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and all that move in them." - Psalm 69
    As you walk with Jesus on his way to the cross, ask Him to help you see His great love and mercy for you more clearly.

    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.
    -----
    Join us beginning April 5 for a 7 day Pilgrimage through Holy Week.

    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!"

Amazing.

This podcast has opened my heart to the word of the lord. Every morning when I do a meditation I feel so much peace and clarity. Love this podcast and can’t wait for the next series!!

Big Ups to you guys.

Definitely God sent and wonderful advice. It’s tight but it’s right. My ex and I just reconnected and there is a change there. A desire more for God and to do what’s right rather than give in to our wants/desires. This was just so needed. Of course I’ll continue to pray on it and hopefully things work out.

Wonderful

I just started the Christian mediation practice and this podcast has been such a blessing to find - it is truly helping me re-center, breath, and be still with the Lord. Spending more time with Him now. Thank you.
