Learn How Christian Meditation Can
Help to Restore Your Peace of Mind
Renewing the Mind
If you are like most people (Christians as well) you may suffer from negative thoughts, limiting beliefs, and stinkin thinkin’.
Until we renew our minds and bring every thought captive to the thoughts and principles of God, our mind will literally sabotage our walk with God.
One of the best ways to take authority over our minds is through meditation. Although many may think that meditation is just sitting quieting and emptying your mind, it is so much more than that. Meditation is a very active practice in training the mind and gaining authority over it instead of it having authority over you.
Through Christian meditation we use the scripture to rein in wandering thoughts while at the same time, hiding God’s Word in our heart.
Through the art of Christian Meditation, we surrender our whole being unto God by entering into his presence and bringing our mind and body under subjection to Christ. Through quieting the mind, meditating on God’s Word, and abiding in His Presence, we consecrate ourselves unto God and away from the world, it’s distractions and worldly attachments and affections. Each time we enter into God’s Secret Place, we allow his transforming presence to change us inwardly where we discover the deeper things of God, a world within a world, that many never dig deep enough to find.
Meditation is the act of meditating; continued or extended thought; reflection; contemplation; or devout religious contemplation or spiritual introspection. Therefore, the practice of Christian meditation would be to engage in thought, contemplation, and reflection about our relationship with Christ and/or the Word of God.

Transform Your Life by Restoring Your Peace of Mind
and Transform Your Relationship with God
“Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” We are admonished by the scriptures to renew our minds by casting down every thought and imagination that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and to bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. Unfortunately, this sound a lot easier than it really is. We are bombarded daily with negative messages, circumstances, and mindsets that work against our peace of mind. We fight a daily war for our very mind and souls. Maintaining peace of mind and overcoming worry, negative thinking, and fear begins with controlling our thoughts.
Many of our false or fear-based mindsets play over and over in our heads without much notice and in many cases the thoughts we meditate on today have been around for a LONG time, maybe as far back as childhood. This often causes us to react to situations without really contemplating our actions. When we do, we’re acting out on our familiar mental and behavioral patterns. I’m sure you’ve heard people say, “Well that’s just the way I am.” What they may not understand is that, this is just the way they are choosing to be by holding onto old patterns of thinking. The good news is that we can decide to renew our minds at any time. I didn’t say it was easy, but acknowledging our stinkin’ thinking is the first step in recovery.

Start Meditating to Renew Your Mind
Starting today, you can choose thoughts that align with God’s Word and that will promote more peace, joy, contentment, and faith in your life. This comes from MEDITATING on the Messiah and His Word. He tells us that whatsoever things are true, lovely, and of a good report, think (meditate) on these things. God also said, “I will keep thee in perfect peace whose mind is stayed (focused) on me. That’s what meditating is really all about, keeping our mind and heart focused on the Messiah and His Word. By hiding God’s Word in our heart, we can walk in peace, faith, and purity. A daily practice of meditating on God’s Word in stillness and silence is a POWERFUL combination.
Take a Course
So if your goal is to renew your mind or restore your peace of mind, I would recommend my step-by-step beginner Christian meditation course that will teach you all the basics, scripture, breathing, and passages for meditation. These are generally silent meditations where you just observe and let go. You might observe your mind, your body’s sensations, noises, etc. These types of meditations teach you first how to observe and then secondly how to detach from thoughts or feelings that aren’t from the Lord or enhancing the quality of your life. Finally, take a look at our Help Me God Change My Life course. This is a great course if you’re desiring to detox your life from mental, spiritual, and physical toxins that may be blocking you from God’s presence.

This guided meditation that includes a progressive relationship as well as scriptures, helps you to understand the relationship between the mind and our walk with God.
