Even though Christian meditation is a fairly old practice it’s a new concept for the modern day Christian. Many believers grew up believing that meditation was ungodly or dangerous. But if you were to do a thorough research, you would find that this just isn’t true.
Meditation and prayer are two different spiritual exercises that are important in our spiritual growth. I will try to explain both scriptural and give their differences. On the one hand, prayer is communication between God and man. Man relates to God personally. Prayer is majorly a two way communication between God and man. Prayer is […]
Self-compassion is really important. It means treating one’s self with understanding and kindness especially when you make a mistake, or go through a complex situation and the way you treat others you care about. Self-compassion is similar to self-esteem, but it is not about the way you are judging yourself, but the way you are […]
I believe that the greatest goal we can have as a Christian is to continue to grow spiritually, become one with Christ, and let the Holy Spirit live in us and through us. This is far from going to church or doing Christian things. It means seeking and growing closer to God, from within instead […]
As a Christian, I believe there is a fine line we can cross when we begin to dive into the spirit world. If we are not careful, we can invite spiritual entities into our lives from these different dimensions that we’d rather do without. I can say that during my meditation practice many times I […]
Oftentimes, Christians have a desire to read their Bibles and the scriptures to learn more about God’s word, but feel they don’t have the time or are not sure the best approach. If you want to grow spiritually, it’s important that some time be dedicated regularly to reading the scriptures and study the teachings of […]
To become more spiritual as a Christian, you first should take a few moments and think about the changes that you would like to see in your life and consider your priorities. You might want to live with more peace and less stress, exercise more, or lose weight. You might want to eliminate your unhealthy […]
I would characterize spiritual lifelessness as being ignorant to the ways and moves of the spirit in your life as well as your being. People are generally spiritual lifeless because they: Don’t know that God’s spirit lives in them. Aren’t seeking to connect with the spirit within them. Are distracted by the material and physical […]
By Rhonda Jones I know as believers that most of us want to spend quality time with God, but either 1) we don’t feel that we have the time, or 2) we’ve gotten into a rut doing the same things over and over and it’s become kind of an mundane and boring. So today I […]
Yesterday I went to a daylong meditation retreat. I believe taking time out to pause, reflect, and reconnect with myself and Father God is essential to my well-being. Everything in the world is pulling us away from Christ and from building our lives in a spiritual foundation. If we don’t take charge of building our […]
What is your normal? For many of us our normal is low-grade anxiety, stress running in the background of our lives, that we’ve become so accustomed to that that we live with it or don’t even recognize it anymore. For others, it is a myriad of activities, or events that are never ending. Never taking […]
Everyone wants to live a more successful life, but many people are unaware of the proper tools that can help. By focusing on the law of attraction, having a vision plan, and practicing Christian meditation you will see a change in the way you live your life. What do you what to achieve? Whether you […]
If you are a Christian that suffers from negative thoughts, create a mental gatekeeper to stop these thoughts from gaining an entrance.
by Donna Kazenske What does the word “compromise” mean to you when we are referring to our Christian beliefs and Christian living? Did Jesus ever compromise the true gospel message in order to be accepted by those to whom He ministered or was He always challenging people to come up to a higher standard of […]

Yet the unknowingness of uncertainty can lend itself to even greater blessings than knowing what the future holds. Uncertainty forces us to live by faith as we see our […]
