Simple Steps to Help You Meditate Daily
Hello Friends! Today I have a special guest post that will help you create and keep a daily meditation practice from Charlotte of milk n honey. I hope you enjoy this post, I know I did
Life gets busy, I know first hand. Being a mom of two kid under five I feel that the 24 hours I'm allotted a day aren't always enough. Up until recently and I hate to admit it, I've had some struggles with making time to... make time to meditate.
It seemed that no matter how good my intentions, I just never seemed to find time to meditate or spend quiet time to reflect on the Word or simply put, be in the presence of the Lord. If you've made a habit of starting your day with God, days seem to go much smoother, not to say that you will not face difficult situations, but you tend to react differently when you get the Word in you early in the morning.
And if you're not a morning person, worry not, I've got a few tips I'd like to share with you on how to get more Word in you and simple steps we can take to ensure daily meditation.
1. Rise Early!
" I rise before dawn and cry for help; I wait for Your words." - Psalm 119:147
Even the psalmist knew the importance of rising early, the above scripture reminds us that when we begin our days with God, the side of the bed on which we rose is truly irrelevant. I mentioned earlier that I've struggled with making time to meditate. It's about finding time! We find time to do the things that matter. Make time to wake early and spend time with the One that matters. Your soul will thank you.
2. Read on the Go!
Always on your phone? Aren't we all! I know I spend way too much time on social media, but I've learned to log off Instagram and log in to my Bible App! If you don't have the app, you should download it ASAP.
There are a slew of awesome ways to keep in sync with the Word, I'm a big fan of their plans; definitely a great way for you to get the Word on the go
3. Find Time!
Not an early riser... Okay, I get it. Don't have time to read on the go? Sure I get that too. But we are all given 24 hours a day and if you can't find time to meditate, please make the time. Whether it's 30 minutes on your lunch hour, 15 minutes of prayer before bed time, or scripture memorizing while you eat breakfast, make time! I promise that when you make it a point to meditate, your mind, body, and soul will benefit from it so much that those 30, 15 and 10 minutes will become the norm.
Have you any suggestions? Would love to hear them!
