My Take

DiVoran Lites

Meditation Journaling

No wonder followers of Christ know how to defeat fear and illness. “Jesus loves us, this we know, for THE BIBLE TELLS US SO.” When we choose to immerse ourselves in any version of the Holy Bible for a short or long time, God awards us with wisdom, peace, love, and joy. Instead of knowing the Bible by rote, I study it for ways to communicate with God. For me, the way to immerse myself in true meditation is to write things down, and that’s where journaling comes in. 

In the Bible, the words “do not be afraid” appear 365 times. Meditate, meditation mind, ponder, think thinking, and thought a total of 445 timesWisdom and Knowledge get 391. The Bible verses are like essential oils; they soak into our hearts and do wonderful things for our bodies, souls, and spirits for all the years of our lives.

Although I journal and study the Bible, I still worry sometimes. However, I am closer to knowing how to be free, and that’s where my peace comes from. 

For me, the best antidote to despair is to recognize when I’m starting down the slippery slide of anxiety. Alerted, I say Jesus a few times until the fear passes. It doesn’t take long for the Lord to switch me over to what he wants to discuss with me.   

“Solid food (for the soul) is for the mature, whose spiritual senses perceive heavenly matters. And they have been adequately trained by what they’ve experienced to emerge with understanding the difference between what is truly excellent and what is evil and harmful.’” TPT Hebrews 5:14

DiVoran has been writing for most of her life. Her first attempt at a story was when she was seven years old and her mother got a new typewriter. DiVoran got to use it and when her dad saw her writing he asked what she was writing about. DiVoran answered that she was writing the story of her life. Her dad’s only comment was, “Well, it’s going to be a very short story.” After most of a lifetime of writing and helping other writers, DiVoran finally launched her own dream which was to write a novel of her own. She now has her Florida Springs trilogy and her novel, a Christian Western Romance, Go West available on Amazon. When speaking about her road to publication, she gives thanks to the Lord for all the people who helped her grow and learn.  She says, “I could never have done it by myself, but when I got going everything fell beautifully into place, and I was glad I had started on my dream.”
