2 Minutes of Silent Meditation

IMG_1774Today is Day 4 of the #PrepareOurHeartsForAdvent Holy Yoga devotional.

As we hide ourselves in Jesus, connecting with Him and letting Him speak His truth of who He is and who we are in Him, pondering these things in our hearts… Sometimes we need to carve out time to just let it all sink in. ย So today we are taking an intentional silent meditation.

When we pray, we bring our praise and petition before God. But in meditation, we sit in silence and allow God to do the speaking. We simply listen and let His truth seep deep into our soul. ๐Ÿ™

This season can be so over-full, things to do and places to be. But we can never do and be everything. So I encourage you to begin your 2minute silence with Jesus by asking Him what you may be holding too tightly to and what you may need to let go of. Then allow Him to whisper His love & mercy into your soul, breathe new life into you, and reveal what you may need to release. And then just sit and revel in His sweet presence.

Today I heard the Lord speak to me. ย It’s not always what I want to hear and that’s how I know it’s True and He’s here; to give it to me RAW. Here I capture the key points:

  1. Patience (with Holy Yoga direction specifically)
  2. Obedience (with my ministry work)
  3. Continue on with rest – not so sure about discerning this one. ย Could this mean spending more time with Him and extending my ‘Social Sabbatical’? ย For now, I’ll run with that.
