Meditate On It

try-some-daily-meditation

Ommmmm…Okay so maybe that’s not the meditation I’m going to talk about tonight.  Meditating is one of THE hardest things for me to do.  I mean.  We are talking about me sitting quietly, without a peep out of my mouth or a thought in my mind.  Yeah…that’s not easy at all.  My mind is constantly spinning it’s wheels…faster than a hamster on it’s spinning wheel.  Even while I’m sleeping my mind will be in deep thought and literally wake me up in the middle of the night with a thought that I end up having to write down on the notepad that sits on my nightstand.  Yup.  That’s how bad it is. But earlier this week I was not able to rest at all.  My thoughts were scrambled, the decision I was making was still unclear to me and all the praying I was doing just wasn’t giving me my answers.  The problem was, like always, I was doing all the talking and not listening.  My brain was busier than the 610 loop in the Galleria during rush hour.  So it had been pretty bad and pretty stressful.  I decided the only way to truly hear God was to sit quietly meditating after I prayed about this major life change.  God had been laying it on my heart to become a Christian Life Coach, which I knew nothing about.  I trusted in God yet I was too afraid to move forward.  So technically I wasn’t trusting Him 100%.  As I sat in silence I had numerous thoughts and worries in my head but had to learn to quiet them down so I could hear God.  By the end of the week, after a few days of meditation, God revealed to me what my next step was.  With all my faith, I trusted God 100% and did exactly as He showed me.  Once I made my decision final on Friday night and signed up to begin my course as a Professional Certified Christian Life Coach, I slept like a baby and felt the weight lift off my shoulders.  I’m still nervous, but I’m so excited to know that God chose me, despite my flaws and imperfections and all my faults, He chose me.  I’m glad I took the time to learn to sit in silence and meditate allowing Him to speak to me.  He has filled me with so much peace and I can’t express how grateful I am for all He has done.  I pray that whatever your situation is now, that not only do you seek God in prayer, but also seek His answers through meditation.  Silently sit and listen for God as He directs your paths.
