Many years ago I suffered from a severe bout with depression. At that time I was a second grade teacher and sometimes I hurt so badly I would go into the bathroom stalls and just cry. I had done everything to find relief: counseling, medication, prayer, and more.
I had good and bad days, but it wasn’t until I stumbled on Biblical meditation that my life turned completely around. When I began to become quiet before God and abide in His presence, an amazing thing happened.
I began to hear God speaking to me. God told me that I was so depressed because of the chronically negative thoughts I was thinking. And oh boy, were they awful. I was constantly putting myself down. God then lead me through a healing process than ended my depression and later created a new ministry for me, Christian Meditation and Relaxation.
In addition to sharing the benefits of Biblical meditation, I love telling my Christian sisters (and brothers) about spiritual disciplines that will truly transform their life. Many of us who have spent years serving God sometimes come to a place in our Christian walk where we want more of God, and less of everything else. You know those things we “do” for God, but they don’t help us to build relationship with Him. That comes from being still and getting to know Him in a personal way.
I want to share with you more about Biblical meditation and how it can change you life as well. Christian meditation is a spiritual discipline we can put into immediate practice to begin to experience our Lord in a new and exciting way!
