What is Lectio Divina? There are resources out there but good ones are hard to find. Here is a web site with a short explanation. The main point I want you to know is that it is an approach into the Word of God which allows us to grasp more of what He might want to communicate to us. It is an approach which can be used individually but there is more benefit when it is done in a small group.

To stretch your mind I am throwing in this video of a very large group doing meditation on a scripture. I believe that is LaCrae, Beth Moore, Francis Chan and others read a passage of scripture and guided the audience to the point of meditation as the video begins–watch!

This film makes me find courage in difficulty and seek other qualities of the human spirit which transcend the menial existence of everyday life. These brave men of the American military show the “uphill” battle our men and women face as they stand to protect freedom our forgotten forefathers and fore mothers fought and died for.
Out of it comes good. I see courage, valor, strength and perseverance. All these virtues and more we do well to desire and show when a moment calls for them.

Very provoking lyrics to me. Ask God to speak to you and then listen! Listen in as many directions as you can!
Here is the history of this work on creation.
I diverge from Eldredge here. I want to use a Will (Good Will Hunting movie) scene coming up and I came across this quote by Will. Is interesting since the NSA is in the news.
Is Will on to something? Isn’t this the way the systems work–even the American systems? I believe Will has a message for the systems of the world and the evil within.
Are you carrying around dirty rotten baggage that others put on you? Release it and live!!! But is not that easy is it? I promise, if you seek a way out, you will find a way out.
