The truth

You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free
(John 8:32; NLT).

*****************************

 

Meditation doesn’t mean
Observing our thoughts dispassionately,
Then simply letting them go.

Instead, it’s an opportunity
To grasp our secret thoughts
So we can hear them –

For then
We will learn the truth
About ourselves.

Cares

Give all you worries and cares to God, for he cares about you (1 Peter 5:7; NLT).

In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind (Job 12:10; NIV).

My future is in your hands (Psalm 31:14-15; NLT).

Lord,
During meditation
I put all my cares
Into your hands –

Though, in fact,
They are already
Safely there!

He makes me as surefooted as a deer, able to tread the heights (Habakkuk 3:19; NLT).

On the heights of meditation,
In the depths of contemplation,
In the silence of my soul,
I find you, Lord, my God.

For God alone my soul waits in silence (Psalm 62:1; ESV).

Into you, my God.

I tremble in fear of you (Psalm 119:120; NLT).

I love you, Lord (Psalm 18:1; NLT).

Lord,
During meditation
I experience a conflict

Between fearing you –
So longing to turn back,

And loving you –
So longing to go on,

Until I dare
To lose my self,

In unity
With you.

Time out

There is one Lord […] who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

In him we live and move and have our being (Act 17:28; NIV).

You are the temple of the living God (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

Meditation offers us time out
From the uniquely human illusion
That we are separate
From all living things,
Including God.
