The Artists Synchroblog is a group of bloggers who post every other month on the same topic, sharing our experience or perspective. I always know which affirmation is the right one for me now because I take an involuntary deep breath. A wonderful side effect of this meditation has been finding inspiration for a bunch of new projects, which I’m looking forward to working on in the coming weeks. Affirmations sound like a great way to adjust perspective…I’ll have to look for the book!
Meditation invites God’s revelation not just to pass through the corridor of our ears, but to take up residence in our minds. Take the time to stop what you’re doing and meditate on the beautiful character and works of our Almighty Father.
Please do not confuse Biblical meditation with the mystical practices of Eastern religions, where some cross-legged yogi hums while pinching his fingers. Yes, like all faithful gospel preachers Tim plays golf on occasion, but he has a far greater interest in clear Bible teaching and the stability of the local church. Wonderful 17oz latte mugs, made here at my studio, they are dishwasher safe, though, personally, I would recommend hand washing as they are more of a OOAK Art mug, each one is unique.
The watermarks are only on the images to protect the copyright; they will not appear on the mug. On alternate months we undertake a Pinterest Project where we each take inspiration from a pinterest picture, create something (art, a meal, a DIY project, etc) and then post about it. A wonderful and gentle way to center and open ourselves to let the universe speak through us. Then we can open our ears to hear the beautiful melodies of God’s wondrous works and wisdom.


This is done by allowing God’s truths to linger in our thoughts while we engage in an inner conversation about their meaning. We live in the day of drama queens where the trivialities of the day drive our emotions up and down like a rollercoaster. We use them here at home and they wash really well, most important, is that they hold lots of tea or coffee! Headlines, bullet points, and tweets are all we have time to consider before we’re on to the next bit of information. It’s like saying, “The more you eat, the healthier you’ll be.” In fact, the opposite is true. Most of the words translated “meditation” in the Bible mean, “to speak, talk, and proclaim.” In other words, meditation is like having your own little study group, where your mind, will and emotions engage in a passionate discussion about God’s self-revelation. I knew a lot of facts about it and even learned a few basic cords, but the instrument never made beautiful music because I didn’t spend much time practicing it. We all have dreams of the kind of people we want to be and the great works we can do for the Lord, but those dreams remain on the launching pad without meditation. His word lays bare the reality we keep carefully hidden from our friends and intentionally suppressed from our own conscience. Meditation plucks us out of the tumultuous moment to see our life from a broader perspective, God’s perspective.
However, upon further examination the careful observer sees the thread, the dye, the weave, the stitching, and the design, and all of a sudden a simple shirt becomes the source of astonishment.
They stand 6" high and are supplied in a plain white cardboard box with my Linda Ravenscroft label. It is not the volume of what is consumed that makes life vibrant, but rather the quality of the morsels of thought we allow into the sacred space of our hearts.


Likewise, we will not hear how practical God’s word is if we do not spend time letting it resonate in our hearts.
In the same way, the powerful commands of Scripture languish as ink on a page without meditation to release them into our lives. Meditation pulls the true self into the light of day so that it might be conformed to the glorious image of Christ.
From the vantage point of reflection we can see the solid rock of God’s truth which provides mooring for our turbulent lives. He continued his education at Florida College (85-87), New Mexico State University (87-90), and received a received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Texas Tech University.
Tim believes the path to unity with God and each other is by going to the Bible for all we believe and practice. Meditation is what leads to those exciting discoveries of truth which cause your heart to leap and your mouth to shout, “I see!
Meditation is where we wrestle with our will and emotions to activate what our mind has come to know.  Meditation is the spark that ignites a courageous life of obedience.
Meditation sends the roots of faith deep into eternal realities which hold our lives stable. The wonders of the cross, the splendors of the resurrection, and the joys of heaven burst into vibrant color under the light of meditation. He has served the Spring Creek Church of Christ in Plano, TX for the last eighteen years, and became one of the editors of Focus Magazine in 2007.
