What is Mummy Meditations?
Do you ever feel that guilt rising that you haven’t done your “daily devotional” or read your bible for a couple of days? Do you feel like the busyness of life as a mum is stopping you from having a proper connection with God? Then Mummy Meditation might be just what you need.
Meditation is a biblical concept where you spend time pondering, thinking and mulling over God’s word to come to a deeper understanding. Now, we all connect with God in different ways, but I believe that this should be a joyous relationship and not one filled with guilt and a feeling of obligation or duty, so I wanted to come up with an achievable way to spend time with God whilst also raising children. Mummy meditations chooses a verse each week (yes I said week not day!) to spend time pondering over, praying over and worshiping over. This can be in lots of different ways, but here are just a few ideas to get your started:
- Write out the verse in visible locations in your house – office, kitchen, noticeboard, bathroom mirror – wherever you will see it and be reminded of it
- Repeat the verse in your mind as much as possible -take time over the different parts of the verse and what they might mean. Why not do this in the different contexts of your life? Early in the morning, walking to school, late at night – you might find different aspects of the verse stick out to you. Whenever you have a free second of head space just think it over!
- Research the verse -look into the context of it in the passage and bible, the context in history and the type of literature that it is. Does this add to your understanding of it?
- Do something with the verse – whether you like to draw, paint, write, pray, sing. Why not do some practical worship with the verse to help you remember it. You could also involve your children in this by thinking of fun crafts or games around each weeks verse, then your children are learning it too!
