As a retired Social Worker working in many areas of service, I have taught meditation and have used it myself. Meditations such as guided imagery, progressive muscle relaxation, breathing, belly breathing, grounding etc. However, it wasn’t until my faith began to grow that I thought, ” hey, I can meditate on Jesus “. Not only through my prayers and praise, but also through favorite songs that touch me. When I first heard the song, Oceans by Hillsong United, I was so shakenly taking well ” overcome “. I remember saying to Jesus, ” you heard my heart, Jesus that’s how I feel, thank you Jesus for giving the singer/songwriters the words”. The blessing of the words to the singer/songwriters is not only how they feel, but their songs can be how someone else feels. Anyway, Oceans by Hillsong United, is one of those song I use to meditate on Jesus, I use the imagery from the song to take me through, and the words to carry me.
