Alleluia! He is risen!
In lieu of a video devotion, here’s what I’d like you to try:
1) Meditate on the below passage. Remember, biblical meditation is repeating a passage, in whole or in parts, to yourself, preferably aloud, and thinking of its parts.
2) Then, reply to me with your questions (or could also be an insight or other thought) at some point before the day is over, preferably after having meditated on it as you go about your day, such as while doing laundry or other chores or whatever. Don’t worry about the simplicity or complexity of your question(s)/insight/thought; just whatever comes to mind that you’re curious about or is comforting to you, etc., though related to the passage in some way.
3) Then, in the next few days, we’ll revisit together what you send to me, and I’ll answer or respond to whatever you give me. (I won’t necessarily share with everyone who asked the question or made the comment, unless you want me to.)
OK, here it is:
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:4-7 ESV
Again, think deeply about it. Massage the passage with your mind. Even pray like young Samuel, “Speak, Lord, for your servant hears,” and wait to see what the Holy Spirit brings to you in your meditation.
I’m looking forward to your responses!
Peace in Christ,
