Christian Meditation Re-Imagined

What is Meditation?


When one says "meditation", the hearer often thinks of a Monk, or Hindu, or Buddhist. Wiki, describes meditation as:
Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit[1] or as an end in itself.[2]
What does this mean for Christians? Many Christian's write off "meditation" as a pagan practice. But... how can that be? Since meditation is mentioned so often in the bible?
"My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD." King James Bible Psalm 104:34

 

Biblical Meditation


Meditate: (Hebrew: siach): 
complaint, musing

Original Word: שִׂ֫יחַ
babbling, communication, complaint, meditation, prayer, talk
From siyach; a contemplation; by implication, an utterance -- babbling, communication, complaint, meditation, prayer, talk.
see HEBREW siyach

 Meditate: basically means to murmur or babble to one's self. To speak to one's self. Now, before you think "Cloud KooKoo Land" on that. Think about it for a moment. I don't know a single human on earth who hasn't spoke, out loud, to no-one-in-particular when they were alone in a room, or thought they were alone.

EX: "What did I come in here for?", "Now... where did I put those keys..."


Imagination: Key to Meditation



You KNOW you do it. This is often manifested in a thing we call "Worry". You rehearse, over and over, the things that went wrong, the things you would change, the things you'd like to change, the things that you are afraid will happen... You speak them, silently and out loud, to yourself frequently. So frequently, in fact, that you don't even notice it anymore.


I suggest a change... What if we took the power of imagination, and started to use that imagination for good. What is imagination? It's thoughts, ideas, words, and images, stories we tell ourselves about the past, present, and future.

What if we wrote our story based on God's outline? What if we let HIM tell us the story, and we write it down?

Practical Christian Meditation


I've written on "hearing God", believing through hearing, and being still to hear God. I talked about taking a few moments to be still... absolutely still!

Let that mind of yours, that's so busy God can't get a word in edgewise, and still that thing down. Shift that gear into LOW SLOW. I'll start by getting into a comfortable position, and then tensing and releasing my muscles. Then I will allow my thoughts to float, bounce, whatever, until they still. Sometimes, I'll pray softly, either in English or Tongues.

Then after a few moments of that I bring my focus in toward the Word. I may grab a verse I've been thinking about or one that's been on my heart. I may open my bible a few moments to read that verse, but then I close it.

I allow my heart to "ponder" that verse. That's what meditation actually means, to ponder, think about, speak, murmur to one's self, speak softly, etc. I will let my mind settle on that. After a while, I'll move on to other daily routine activities.


And now I leave you with a question:

What do you think about Meditation? How could this apply to your walk with God?

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see
http://www.darrellwolfe.com/2018/06/flavia-antoinette-wolfe-and-baby-wolfe.html?m=1

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

A Memorial Message of Hope

My wife, Flavia Antoinette Wolfe, passed into Glory on 06/25/2018. This is the message/word God gave me.Dealing with Tragedy
When tragedy strikes, we often compelled to ask questions and express doubts:
• Why?
• What if… a thousand what-ifs…
• If only…
• I should have/shouldn't have
• Can God really be good?
• Can the Bible really be true?

The answer to why is simple, hard, and totally unsatisfying: This World Is Broken. 

Sin entered the world, and through sin, death. BUT, God. So many powerful stories have a "but God" moment. Jesus came, he conquered death, and through him, our sorrow is lessened, and a drop of joy lies underneath.

"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 New King James Version (NKJV)

You WILL have tribulation. That's just as much a promise as anything else in the bible. Trouble is here on this planet for all of us because of…

The World's Broken Babylonian Financial System is Crashing! Praise God!

So, things are crazy in the world.

The United States of America, God's Country, is NOT ending. We are NOT seeing the failure of capitalism, so to speak. We ARE seeing the death of socialism and man's twisting of God's systems. The USA will arise out of this financial mess and help to bring the The Lord Jesus back in an end times revival awakening to the world.

It is interesting to see how crazy the world has become though. World leaders are confused and there are over 100 world financial leaders that have stepped down recently... This shows how confused the world is about why their system isn't working.


I got the following in an email:

A little ditty I was singing in the kitchen...

I can't recall the words to...

This song that's stuck in my head...

I must know the words, to this stupid song, or I can't go to bed...

It's the Circle of Life...

Oh yeah, that's right, the Lion King...

It's Elton John... At the height of his career...

Good Night!


Shalom: Live Long and Prosper!
