Scripture Meditation

I love to meditate and have been doing so for years.  It was a little scary starting, because I thought I had to sit and not think for 20 minutes.  That sounded crazy!  My brain is too busy for that.

I started little by little.  You can read my journey from newbie to meditation lover here.  I include all the tools I used.  I learned that there are many ways to meditate and all can benefit you.

Meditate Using Scripture

Today I want to teach you how to easily meditate, using the scriptures.  It is a combination of all that I have learned over the past years put into an easy to do 5 minute chunk of time.  I am so excited to share it with you. I know that everyone can benefit from this and start doing it right away.  From someone who has never meditated before to someone with years of experience.


  1.  Start by taking 3 deep breaths
  2. Sing a Hymn
  3. Touch Fingers one at a time with your thumb and chant “Be Still and Know that I am God.” (really any scripture or hymn) ** for 3 minutes.
  4. (Advanced option – Say it: out loud, whisper, silent, whisper, out loud)
  5. Then be silent for 1 minute.  (As you have thoughts just let them float away)

This isn’t science, this is following the Spirit.  So pray about it and figure out what works best for you.  I tend to do something a little different every day.  Though I start with deep breaths and end with a minute of silence.

Some of My favorite things to chant.

Be Still and Know that I am God.

Feast Upon the Words of Christ.

I Know that My Redeemer Lives.

Rejoice, rejoice the Savior has Come.
