For the past two days I have woken up before my 5:30 alarm, and in those sleepy moments upon waking have had very specific thoughts about this app. The first day I thought, “I wish the Pause App had some of the prayers from Resilient on it.” (I’ve been listening to the podcast, but haven’t gotten the book yet.) And then I went to use the app, and there it was - a whole 30 day journey of Resilient prayers and meditation. I love it! I love Jesus.

The next day, I woke up thinking of this ancient Christian truth that I am united to God like a drop in the ocean - I am one with him. And at the same time He is like the whole ocean in a drop as He fills me with himself. As I pondered this I listened to day 2, and had to laugh at the goodness of God. Union with Him is the theme for the day. I feel like I’m being set up. In the best possible way. I’m truly loving this series. Thank you!

Also, a HUGE thank you for having multicultural voices reading and praying in this series. My heart is so full. This is so important. Thank you.

Unexpectedly the most used app on my phone

I’m a long-time practitioner of many types of meditation and have found the Pause App to be exactly what has been missing in my life and walk with God. It’s often hard for me to allow myself even a minute while rocketing between tasks- having an option to explicitly take a single minute, three, five, and set that time aside for God and myself, has been more transformative than I can say. The app actively encourages you that even sixty-seconds is enough- there’s no pressure to achieve anything or fear of failure, and that is so redemptive.

DEVELOPER: the one feature I would request is the ability to pause the voice guidance track but leave the music playing - at times during the ‘linger’ or ‘pause’ moments I’d like to be able to pray/reflect/meditate and having the music continue would keep me focused in the moment a little more smoothly. Also offline downloads works be great. Otherwise fantastic app! Thank you!

HIGHLY suggest this app.

If you are a believer who struggles with chronic anxiety or are just struggling with extra stress in your life right now given current unknowns... Check this out!

Meditation, I think, is becoming more accepted in Christian communities... but sometimes the word turns people off “We don’t want your new age crap!! Holy water! Holy water!” 😉
I’ve personally tried some Jon Cabat Zinn guided mediations and they did WONDERS for me. Literally talked me down from panic attack to breathing and thinking normal.

This?! I Love it even more. And! It is definitely a “safe place” for those who who are hesitant with the whole mediation thing.

If you’ve been hesitant about mediating, but have been suggested in therapy or by your naturopath to try meditation for your anxiety or depression - try this. It’s a guided mediation led by our brother in Christ John Eldredge. He invites you to pause and focus on the present moment and lean into the Presence of God for Peace and Comfort and to give Him total control. You start with a 1 minute meditation and after you’ve done that 3 times throughout 2 days or so, it unlocks a 3 minute, and so on and so forth until you reach 15 to 20 minutes.
So! It’s super slow going; non-intrusive.
As the minutes get longer, more opportunities to invite healing into broken circumstances are introduced.

Amazing. Absolutely amazing, you guys. Give it a go.

Peace be with you ❤️🙏🏻
