Lectio Divina

August 29, 2012

Set a timer for five minutes.

Sit with one verse.

Put aside reading for milage…. or to cover as much as possible like you are cramming for a future test.

This exercise isn’t about that.

Don’t wonder about the Greek… the Latin.

Don’t wonder about what someone smarter would say.

Don’t think about how this has applied to the past…

Don’t wonder about what it means for the future.

Don’t dissect it or wonder what it means to others.

Sit with Him in the now.

Take it as your Truth in this second…in these five minutes, absorb this into your being.

Like breath.

Like food.

let it change the very composition of who you are.

You, Eternal One, are my sustenance and my life~giving cup.

In that cup, You hold my future and my eternal riches

~ psalm16:5 (the Voice translation)

Set the timer….

    Today, for the first time in over three months, I opened His Word and stayed quiet before Him.

      oh i know… it has been life changing…so much so it is hard to just convey in type…
      It’s such a small change that makes such an enormous impact.
