Time to Get Healthy
So we all had fun eating from Thanksgiving to Christmas, and now it is time to lose some pounds and restore our health. Patti and I have been intensely focused on health since we moved to Florida nine months ago. We have made some great strides, and spent the last month finalizing a blog for you concerning some of what we have learned and experienced over recent months (more coming in future blogs).
We have discovered some new products which are so exciting, we have decided to sell them from our store. We choose to sell only those things we have found personally beneficial and which we feel will benefit our readers. So I encourage you to take some time and prayerfully meditate through this blog: It Only Takes 10 Days for Good Nutrition to Improve Your Health
! We are feeling better and better and LOVE the experience of improving health at age 61! Thank You, Lord! May you enjoy the gift of good health. The blog suggests some great books and online college courses that can spur you on the path of good health. Get them and immerse yourself in them.
If you want to explore hosting a practical, down-to-earth seminar
with Dr. Mark Virkler on "Restoring Health Naturally," drop him an email at Mark@cluonline.com
. Health is too cherished a gift to waste.

7 Steps of Biblical Meditation
I have known for years that the Bible recommends meditation over Western study. I have wanted to research and write about this, and finally I have taken a couple of months and God has revealed a wonderfully simple 7 Step Meditation Process, which I share in this blog. I am excited to be practicing it almost every day. It involves a simple way to combine two-way journaling with Scripture meditation.
It adds in a piece I have never intentionally added in before, which is to ask the question, "What does this verse reveal about God's heart toward me?" So this is specifically adding in an emotional component to your journaling, which I believe is important. "For Jesus moved by compassion
...healed." So emotion was central to Jesus' life and walk and ministry. I am sure we have marginalized emotion, making it a part of our souls rather than our spirits, and saying emotions are unreliable and untrustworthy and thus stepping away from them. Well, if emotion was a key component of Jesus' healing ministry, then I would assume it has been satan and doctrines of demons which have told us to marginalize emotions. So I am glad to now be intentionally restoring emotions to the two-way journaling process.
I encourage you to try this 7 step meditation process
and then add your comment to the end of the blog, and perhaps even one of your Bible meditations so others can see how this is working. Thank you!
Introducing Thom Gardner, a Blogger Who Will Present Weekly Bible Meditations
We are thrilled to introduce Thom Gardner as our newest blogger. It was the meditations from his book, The Healing Journey
, which consolidated for me the need to intentionally add into my journaling the question, "What does this reveal about God's heart toward me?" I am so excited about this revelation and the intentional inclusion of emotion to my Christian experience that we have begun to sell Thom's book and also asked him to share one meditation a week with us from this book. Thom has agreed and you can find his first blog here: The Healing Journey: Day One
. Try it. I believe you will like it!

Leading Worshipers into the Throne Room
For years I have polled congregations and found that only a minority use the eyes of their hearts during worship and actually go into the throne room to worship their King there. I find this heartbreaking. So finally I have written a blog describing what throne room worship is, how to enter into it yourself, and how to lead a congregation into throne-room worship. The blog, Leading Worshipers into the Throne Room, is available here
