    Invitation to an Abundant Life

    Invitation to an Abundant Life

    Join us this Advent Season as we prepare our hearts once again for Christ’s birth.
    These Advent meditations can be revisited and reflected upon throughout your week. Don’t rush the process of listening for God’s promptings. In stillness we become more aware of God’s Presence and activity in our life.
     
    Today’s scripture meditation is from Isaiah 55 (The Passion Translation) - an invitation to come and drink freely from the fountain of Grace. Jesus comes bringing salvation and hope to all people. His faithful promises are carried out generation to generation.
     
    And there is an invitation with your name on it. An invitation to pull away from the busyness, distractions, and details that consume us. An invitation filled with love and grace.
     
    So find a quiet space, take several slow, deep breaths, and settle into the awareness of Immanuel, God with you.

    The Daily Examen

    The Daily Examen

    This week we will be focusing on the spiritual practice of The Daily Examen - an ancient Church practice that helps us see God’s hand at work in our whole life experience. The Daily Examen encourages us to look at and review our day in the Presence of God, who always sees us and knows our every thought. When we examine our day through the lens and guidance of the Holy Spirit, we recognize and experience God’s Presence and unlimited gifts of Grace.

    The Practice of Gratitude

    The Practice of Gratitude

    This meditation focuses on the spiritual practice of gratitude, as we meditate on Psalm 103 and reflect upon God’s goodness. When we pay attention to God’s activity and abundant blessings in the every day, ordinary moments of life, we cultivate and nurture a heart of gratitude.

    Practicing Christian Meditation

    Practicing Christian Meditation

    Today’s podcast emphasizes the important benefits of Christian meditation. Meditation is simply focusing the mind on a particular thing. Christian meditation is focusing the whole self - our body, soul, mind and spirit - on God and his word.
     
    God invites us to be still and know him. Stillness fosters a greater awareness of God‘s presence with us.
     
    Quietness teaches us to hear and recognize our creator’s voice. 
    So what are you focusing on? Are you making worries and concerns your place of meditation? What you focus on grows and begins to dominate your thoughts. 
     
     We invite you to settle in and refocus your thoughts on the Divine presence of the Holy One keeping company with you.

    Encountering God through Lectio Divina

    Encountering God through Lectio Divina

    Today's meditation focuses on experiencing God through the spiritual practice of Lectio Divina.
    Lectio Divina means “divine or sacred” reading and is a way of dialoguing with God through His Word.
    In this way of reading the Bible, we slow down in order to read a passage of Scripture for the purpose of spiritual transformation, rather than an information only mindset.
    Today's scripture Reading was taken from Isaiah 43:1-5 NLT
    Quote by: Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together
    For more on Lectio Divina and other sacred spiritual practicies, we recommend Ruth Haley Barton’s book, Sacred Rhythms.

    Known by God (Psalm 139)

    Known by God (Psalm 139)

    On today’s podcast, host Cindy Helton leads us through a meditation on Psalm 139. If you’re feeling a little unsettled, anxious or just need a few minutes of quiet, this is a place where your soul can breathe.
     
    As you meditate upon this timeless Psalm, pay attention to the pronouns 'I', 'Me', and 'My.' Embrace how your Heavenly Father sees, knows, understands and watches over you personally.
     
    Scripture Reading taken from Psalm 139 NLT
     
    Quote: By Bishop Michael Curry, Love Is the Way
    "Everybody is God’s somebody. I’ve come to see that the call of God, the love that bids us welcome, is always a call to become the true you…someone made in the image of God, deserving of and receiving love. It’s about discovering your true self—the self that looks like God."

Beautifully written and spoken!

These meditations are beautifully written and Cindy’s voice is so pleasant and soothing. I always feel more calm after listening to these. I save my favorite ones to listen to when I really need them and I look forward to the new ones every week.

I've missed this podcast but appreciate the respite taken to be closer to God. Many blessings in this, the most beneficial podcast. The peace, inspiration, wisdom, prayer & scripture are blessings for the soul. Light & hope in an otherwise negative world these days. To God be the glory🕊
