Mindfulness & Meditation

August 5, 2018 ()

Bible Text: Joshua 1:1-9, Romans 8:1-11, Matthew 7:24-29 |


“Discipline in the spiritual life is the concentrated effort to create the space and time where God can become our master and where we can respond freely to God’s guidance. Thus, discipline is the creation of boundaries that keep time and space open for God”

Henri Nouwen

When the child of God practices mindfulness (being present in the moment) and meditation (listening for God’s voice as we ponder His Word) as spiritual disciplines, those tools help create that time and space for God to cut through the noise of this life. How are you putting into practice listening for God’s voice—being still, being present in the moment? How do you struggle with these disciplines? The good news is that our God in Christ has drawn near to us so that we might draw near to Him.
