Book Description
Jesus tells us, “Neither will they say, ‘Look, here!’ or, ‘Look, there!’ for behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.” Christian meditation is the practice of resting in the Kingdom in stillness and silence, placing our attention in the center of our being.

We spend time talking to God, but we rarely take time to listen, to be available to receive from Him. A fulfilling relationship needs good communication, both prayer, and meditation.

We also fill up our time attending to our many things to do. The practice of Christian meditation provides the balance to connect to our Lord and just be with Him. By doing so, we bring His grace into our daily activities.

This beautiful practice invites us to experience the Fruit of the Spirit. We all want to experience an abundance of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Some additional benefits are a stabilized emotional life, an overall sense of wellbeing, and a desire to extend God’s love to others.
