God’s message is all about spreading love and peace. Your Lord wants you to love him, but more than that, He wants you to spread love, empathy and care among ourselves. Christian meditation is all about arousing feelings of heightened empathy, compassion, and reflection about others in our surroundings. It melts the frost the heart and ignites the flames of love while delivering blissful peace. Indeed, your Lord wants you to love one others, and it is only by loving His creation that you can truly express your love for God.
When faced by countless problems, obstacles, injustices, sufferings and agonies of our brutally testing and ruthlessly materialistic lives, it is so easy to turn bitter and lose faith in the healing and nourishing powers of love. It could be anything that may have driven you away from faith, love and God. For instance, your parents may have passed away, your young child may have died, or you may be suffering from a fatal illness for as long as you remember, all such events are bound to make us cold and bitter.
However, it is important to understand that only the soothing love and nourishing words of God in the heart can take away all deep spiritual pain, insecurity, fear, and doubt. The song of a worshipful heart can fill your spiritual atmosphere with light, love, joy, and hope. One the threshold is crossed we can look at others with great mercy and love with the eyes of understanding. Helping others despite our trials have a way of nourishing us, motivating us, inspiring us, encourage us, and depositing deep inner peace. Selfless giving opens God's flow.
Christian meditation and scriptural study serves to instill a desire to love. It rids the heart and mind of negativity and destructive emotions. During meditative self-reflection however, inspiring feelings of gratitude and encouraging empathy can arise. This is God directly and spiritually loving you, healing you. Meditation raises the mind beyond the mundane into a state of holy communion. It delivers the heart, soul, and mind to the glory of God. God's glory by virtue of its indescribable perfection convinces us to relinquish all negativity, hatred, anger, bitterness, and resentment. It opens the heart to a love and peace understood in the highest heavens. Allowing the brightness of God's love to shine in you illuminates the mind, not with logic, but with first hand knowledge of the divine. The unspeakable truth of God is known to the soul through a radiant language deciphered by the heart. Illuminated by the fierce glow of God's positive energy hope births a myriad possibilities in the potential of the soul, each destined to bring more life and hope into the world.
Christian meditation builds us with the spiritual energy of love which binds the universe. As a vehicle is helps to remain encouraged with great love for God and others. It is that great selfless love which extents into our mind and cultivates humility, one of the most recurring and prevalent themes of the Bible. Indeed, one can only find God in love, and only one is love, Christ.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres".
From time to time we all may feel a lack of peace and tranquillity, or a sense of disconnect with God. The main reason for our sense detachment comes from the hurriedness of modern life. It appears technology mechanization does not help elevate our spiritual sense toward God. In fact they have the opposite effect and lead us to a more materialistic sense of self. The quest for success and prosperity also plays a role in the decline of our social status with God. Taking time out from our busy and hectic schedules to seek the light of God will change the core of who we are. We must all devote some time to our spiritual development and the nourishment of our soul.
Christian meditation, or guided Christian mediation, has a truly powerful and intense effect on one’s mind and soul, it not only helps strengthen your faith by entrusting all your problems and worries in the care of your Lord, but it also urges you to reflect on all your thoughts, words, and actions. Ultimately it guides you to become more reflective of Christ's presence in you affecting your judgement, decisions, and opinions. Keeping your heart clear of negativity allows pure divine love to flow into the lives of the brothers and sisters around you. The kingdom of God is within you with you and the pain and plight of others is where one should invest with Godly love.
Loving others as yourself is the essence of Christian love and the core message of Jesus. He loved us with unending eternal love, a love so strong and deep that it cause God to save us. Time and again, our Lord implores us to love each another, and truly, it is in love, kindness, and generosity that one can find true peace and serenity. When one does well to others and shows kindness with empathy to plight and trial, one becomes a recipient of God's deep love and mercy, and meditation is the way we can bask in this glory, strengthening us more so we can give beyond our capacity. Contemplative spiritual practice is how victory is establish over soul and body, and love for God and others is the path that is laid before us when we are conquered by God.
The bible stresses upon the need to love again and again:
A Guided Christian Meditation To Achieving Peace With God In Love
Close your eyes and clear your mind of burdens and your heart of negativity and worry. Decide that you are going to take a break from the world for just a few minutes.
- You can play soft music or chant a Bible verse with a few words. Take a deep breathe and let go. As you meditate, start giving yourself to the Lord.
- If any negative emotions arise, accept them, and embrace them with Christ's love. You might feel God's healing energy at this point. If tears flow, let them flow. Then go back and let Christ be your life.
- Relinquish yourself to Jesus totally and completely. His breath should your breath. His heartbeat should be your heart beat. His mind should be your mind. Feel everything that is in Jesus. Let go.
- Let God be. Be still... for a few minutes.
- Love God. Embrace God. Thank God. Pray.
- Slowly open your eyes.
Indeed, the only way to conquer the soul and body is by not conquering it. Instead we are to accept all that is within us as a Christ-fill being. Becoming less in the Lord, the Lord becomes more in us. It is Christ that conquers all things. We are only to obey and relinquish ourselves to Christ Jesus. In this loving meditation the Lord can be all in us.
Regardless of how awful we think our condition is, the Lord loves us unconditionally. His love is eternal and the Lord is deeply interested in the activity of your heart. God's involvement within us is largely dependent on our conscious and willing search for Him. God is eternally steadfast adorning the hearts of those who commune with Him. God reciprocates with greater intensity with those who adorn their souls with His word. God bless you. We love you and we're praying for you. Submit you kind words and observations below.
