Meditation and Mindfulness

Mindfulness: My Definition
Growing the Divine Exchange:
Finding Pure Peace in the presence of Jesus Christ moment by moment without judgement.
Draw near to God and he will draw near to you (James 4:8). Healthy living begins with healthy thinking. Be kind to yourself.
Meet people where they are at. Love is the Law. Visualizing ourselves and each person as made in the image of GOD.
Be humble, loving and forgiving.
It is a constant battle for the mind:
Good versus evil. The evil one is the master of disguise and discouragement.
We all have our demons. Quietness is the classroom to hear the word of GOD. Allow the Holy Spirit to organize your day.
Let your mind, body and spirit relax in God’s presence. Know that you are worth of God’s unfailing Love and Mercy.
Picture yourself running into the compassionate arms of Jesus Christ. Know that Jesus is all and in all.
