I have over the years collected many Daily Bread which I use for my meditation time. I find that starting with a prayer of thankfulness at the beginning very important. Then while I am doing my devotional, if anyone or anything in my life relates to the passage I am reading I will stop and pray for them or that situation. I also pray at the end of my devotion. Sending out arrow prayers throughout the day keep me centered and at peace.

I cultivated a practice of giving thanks while I drove to work. I would keep the radio off and thank God for the little and big things in my life as I drove along. Most of the time I would not start out with a thankful heart, and I struggled to come up with meaningful things to say. I would look around and say, "Thank you for my car. Thank you for the rain. Thank you for the job I'm going to." But after a minute or two things would begin to flow. It felt good to start my working day reminding myself of what I'd been given.

Nature draws me closer to God. For me, being inside the forest is like being inside a cathedral. One of my favourite things to do is to hike the trails on Grouse mountain. There is something about climbing a mountain that brings me closer to God. You feel like you're in a completely different world and are completely removed from the hustle and bustle of city life. It is a contemplative experience. Very life giving. A breath of fresh air that clears the mind and gives one a new perspective on life. When this journey is taken with a spiritual friend, the conversation can go to a much deeper level. Incredible ministry takes place on the trails. And healing too. And all it takes is 1h + or - 15min to climb up to the top. What a refreshing way to start the day or to wind down after a busy or particularly stressful day. Just need to remember that it is God the Creator who refreshes you, does the healing and gives you a new perspective on things and not the forest (the creation).

I think spiritual friendship is also a good spiritual discipline. You see and hear the Holy Spirit working through the lives of believing friends.

I find it life-giving to make a time in my day to remind myself of His Grace for me, that it doesn't matter how many times I exercise or sit in silence, and doing my best to apply that Grace onto myself without need to assert function to my day.
