Welcome to the Meditative Writing experience. I am glad you are here, and I pray that you will be blessed in a unique and special way, a way perfect for you, that only you need and can appreciate. You may not even know what you need, but God does, and when you open yourself to God, God will open to you.
Your first task may be the most difficult: You need at least 20 minutes (30 would be better) of uninterrupted time and space. Find somewhere you can be comfortable. Have a glass of water, herbal tea, or healthy drink of your choice nearby. You may like to have your own Bible with you, or an online portal such as Bible Gateway. You also need something to write on and write with. You may choose paper and pen or pencil, or your computer, whichever feels best to you. When you are ready, follow the steps below.
- Go to the Lectionary for this week and begin by praying the prayer at the top under “The Collect.” You may add to and personalize this prayer in any way you wish. Do ask God to enter and cleanse you, and to surround you with the Holy Spirit. Next, read through the four Bible passages. Read thoughtfully, asking God which of these passages is especially speaking to you at this time. When you have chosen one of the passages, read it again two or three times so that you will be familiar with it. Look it up in your Bible, or in other versions if you wish. Then come back to this page. (The link will open in a new page.)
- Next, get completely comfortable and click on the Meditation Starter. It’s about 5 minutes, and too large to embed here, so this link will take you to my YouTube channel. Come back here when you are through, and share whatever you like in the comments below.
I hope you are deeply blessed by this time with God.
