Sentences and Words of Life

In our meditations we use sentences based upon biblical teaching. 
All of them focus our attention on God and serve as channels through which the power of His Spirit can enter our hearts and quicken us.

Most of our sentences have in them a Word of Life representing “a divine quality which, of its very nature, is eternal”. Each Word of Life can have the words “I am” before it, telling us something of the nature of God. For example: “I am Life”, “I am Love”, “I am Peace”.

When we reach our deepest stillness, a Word of Life should be sufficient to keep the mind steady in the presence of the indwelling Spirit. Then the supporting words fade away and we rest in the light of His Presence.
