Be Still, Find Peace and Know God

I’m Jackie Trottmann. This is home to my blog and ezine called The Guided Life – Offering encouragement to live a life guided by God. (You can click the link above or sign up for The Guided Life below. It's free.)
I am also the author of the book God Notes – Daily Doses of Divine Encouragement coming in May of 2017 through DreamSculpt Books, an imprint of Waterside Productions, audio book through End Hunger Records, and creator of three meditation CDs: Be Still, Let it Go, and Trust.
The Psalmist says, "Be still and know that I am God." Our culture says that what we do is never enough, and worse(!), that we are never enough.
Stressing and striving robs you of the abundant and joyful life that Jesus promises. Even our devices will stop working if they are not recharged! Feeding your mind with the horiffic images on the news will disturb your spirit. Fear of missing out if you're not constantly connected and available will steal your peace and cause you to be anxious.
This site and all its offerings were created to help you step away from life's fast lane and reconnect to spirit, God's Spirit within you. That means taking time to deepen the most important relationship you have - your relationship with God. God yearns for our love. In turn, we have yearnings that will never be met by a job, a love relationship, the next shopping purchase, or the latest and greatest thing marketing wants us to believe will bring us happiness. I believe that only God’s love can fill those yearnings.
Growing up in the Christian faith, meditation was never taught. Verbal prayer certainly was, but not meditation. I have discovered that:
Prayer is talking to God and meditation is listening to God.
If you wish to develop a deeper relationship with God and know God (as the Psalmist says), meditation is a wonderful spiritual practice that can help you. Any relationship takes investing time. To have a deeper relationship with God, we need to spend time with God. Meditation is a perfect opportunity to be still in God’s presence. Here's what else you can also experience by practicing meditation.
