Scripture Meditation - What is it?

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 3-5 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.
