7 Jul 2020: Be Transformed
Transformation is a process, a journey of change. In Christ we are urged to live up to the new creation we have become. As you listen to these scriptures, consider these questions: In what ways do I remain in my old self? In what ways have I been transformed? In what ways am I not being changed or transformed? Let's examine our motives, our desires and our heart for all God has given us. He does the changing, we only need to agree.  Daylight Meditations is a daily podcast from CFO North America.  Please visit www.cfonorthamerica.org to learn more about our retreats.

6 Jul 2020: You are a new Creation
To become who we were born to be, begins when we believe who Jesus is. Our spirit is born and we become new creatures. It then becomes our deepest desire to learn about our identity, our purpose and our destiny. Today's meditation reminds us why we yearn to know more about God, to know God, and therein learn who we really are.  Daylight Meditations is a daily podcast from CFO North America.  Please visit www.cfonorthamerica.org to learn more about our retreats.

1 Jul 2020: Loving as God Loves
The scriptures remind us when we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us. God drenches us in His love and gives us the capacity to love others the same way. Living well, is letting go of a temporary role to gain a far greater identity - one who loves like Jesus.

22 Jun 2020: There is None Like You
Today's meditation is inspired by phrases within the liturgy of the Mass and used in several of the sacramental denominations.  Beethoven’s “Mass in C Major, Opus 86” includes the words beautifully sung in Latin.  The meditation’s words are paraphrased but prayerfully only add, to the actual words of the liturgy’s reverence, awe, and wonder for our Lord. Take in the beauty and wonder of the majesty of God, who loves you this day. Daylight Meditations is a new podcast from CFO.  Please visit www.cfonorthamerica.org to connect further with us.

19 Jun 2020: Knowledge of the Truth
This morning’s meditation is taken from the book, Of Imitation of Christ, attributed to Thomas a Kempis, a medieval monk (1380-1471).  The date and author of this book is still a matter of scholarly debate, yet with the exception of the Bible,  no Christian writing has had such a sustained popularity. Ponder these thoughts compiled over 500 years ago, and sense their relevance to today’s Christian journey.

10 Jun 2020: Fruits of the Spirit
This morning’s meditation is selected from the form and content of Galatians 5:22 and the wonderful song, “SWEEP OVER MY SOUL”.  These two sources are merged to convey and affirm that all things that are good originate from God, and are brought to us by the Holy Spirit.  These gifts are intended to flow from us as we go about our daily routine of connecting with people in the circumstances we are presented with each day.  We are to be founts of God’s blessings, His living water, for all the people in our lives.  This is what it means to be conduits of his love!  Daylight Meditations is a new podcast from CFO.  Please visit www.cfonorthamerica.org to connect further with us.

9 Jun 2020: Be Thou My Vision
This morning’s meditation is based upon selected verses from the famous Christian song, “Be Thou My Vision” by Eleanor H. Hull (1912).  Richard Foster writes, “The ability to have a vision is part of what it means to be human.  Most of us have many different visions, and we live our lives accordingly.”  These verses are a prayer to Jesus that we might see Him as he truly is and that this vision might become the supreme motivation of our lives.  Daylight Meditations is a new podcast from CFO.  Please visit www.cfonorthamerica.org to connect further with us.

This morning’s meditation is taken from the song, “O Breathe on Me, O Breath of God” by Edwin Hatch (1835-1889).  We are told in Genesis it was the breath of God that brought life to Adam.  God’s breath is present still, bringing, us life today. Ponder each verse as we meditate, in gratitude, what springs to life from the breath of God.

3 Jun 2020: Adoration for God over All
We are blessed to know and experience the love and grace that flows from fellowship with those who are in relationship with Jesus.  It is the fellowship of believers who know that our God can not be captured inside a denomination but reigns supreme above all that has existed, is existing, and will ever exist. In this way we are blessed to be able to take the best expressions of praise and worship from all denominations that profess Jesus as Lord.  Liturgy in the sacramental churches can be meaningless and powerless if merely recited but truly inspiring and powerful if spoken and heard by the heart.  Be blessed, this morning, by words selected from the Roman Catholic Church’s Order of Mass. Hear them with your heart. Take them in as expressions of love and grace, inspired by God and spoken by men.
