Welcome my Friends to the Third Quarter, 2019.
Whether one calls it 'Self-Denial', 'Soul Friendship', or 'Spiritual Disciplines', now that we have elaborated and on 'Spiritual Disciplines', and discussed for a season with the topic of Stress; let's resume more of the 'Spiritual Disciplines'.
I sincerely hope and pray that all in this series of posts will be advantageous to you for the purpose of growing in the knowledge and grace of the Lord.
As always, before we get started. Remember, these are 'tools', so let us not get anxious. Amen. Amen.
Continuing today, with some further posts since we began our series for anyone desiring to draw into a more intimate relationship with God through Jesus Christ, with our Introductory Post A, Wednesday, April 3, 2019; Post B, Friday, April 5, 2019 ; Post C. Sunday, April 7, 2019; Post D, Wednesday, April 10, 2019; and Post E, Friday, April 12, 2019. We then continued to post on a bi-monthly basis on Sunday/Wednesday/Friday, until we finished. See, all the following, therefore.
Post 1, April 24, 2019; Post 2, April 26. 2019; Posts 3,4,5,6,7,8,9; May 5,8, 10, 19, 22, 24,2019, and so forth.
Remember to see our posts on 'Stress'; 'Service' and 'Fasting' posted June 2-5-7; 16-19-21, 2019-during our Sunday/Wednesday/Friday, bi-monthly posts.
Continuing today, July 21, 2019, our post series from July 7, 10, 12, 2019, therefore. Let us look at some other 'disciplines' or habits of 'the Christian Way of Life' or 'habits' we can practice endeavoring to walk closer and closer with Our Lord and Savior. On our last posts, we covered 'service', and 'fasting'. [June 19, 21, 2019] Remember, the purpose of 'disciplines' is - 'Christian discipleship' - 'getting a better understanding of God, His Purposes for us, ever learning to become - in thoughts, words, and actions - JUST LIKE JESUS'.
LET US NOT MISS THIS MOST IMPORTANT OBJECTIVE - ALL FOR THE GLORY AND PRAISE OF GOD!! Amen. Amen.
Today, let us look at:
How to Practice an Hour of Silence Every Day
1. Schedule your hour of silence at a particular time every day.
2. During that hour, turn off the phone, TV, radio, computer, and all other appliances and communication devices. Put down all books and other reading material.
3. Light a candle to be a witness to your hour of silence.
4. Sit quietly and rest—or look carefully at a natural object—or engage in work that does not require you to hear, see, or express words. Gentle housekeeping or gardening are excellent activities of silence, or a long walk in nature.
5. Listen to the silence, all the time enjoying this hour-long respite from thinking, reviewing, planning, and imagining. Stay in the present moment.
6. Breathe deeply and mindfully, bringing in the silence and expelling mental “noise.”
7. At the end of your hour of silence, let your first word be an expression of gratitude or love; then put out the candle and go about your business.
Ever remember that the 'goal' of any of the disciplines is to draw closer in our personal relationship with God, in Jesus Christ, by Grace through faith, in the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, for the glory and praise of God, in accordance with the Holy Bible.
Remember, what we hear will be in accordance with the Written Word. Take note and 'search the Scriptures' [Acts 17:11], for God has 'spoken to you'. This is 'guidance' and 'wisdom' to be heeded!
Also remember, that we need to learn that it's okay to tell others that we just want to be alone and tell them in a way that helps them understand this isn't a slight against them, but just our way of letting our spirits breathe a little bit. Sometimes, taking a 'brown-bag' lunch to a near-by park or harbor; 'hiding out', can be the very 'boost' or moments of 'revelation' you need for that 'busy afternoon-into-evening' to finish a hectic day, with wisdom from the Lord. You know what is on your platter. Be 'creative' getting alone with Our Blessed Savior, to whom we are 'yoked'. [1 Peter 5:7] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
On our next Post 18 on July 24, 2019, we will have some Holy Bible passages posted for you to 'search for yourselves', with respect to the practices and habits of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in these 'disciplines'. [Acts 17:11]. Be blessed and thank you for returning. Amen. Amen.
