Some years ago, a popular book painted a fresh coat of paint on the concept known as the Law of Attraction. The Secret is still on best-seller lists, and the “LOA” is taught and practiced by many people. But what does the LOA have to do with the Bible? Beth will share where the Bible supports the concept and how we can best apply that concept in our lives. So much more than a way to pursue health and wealth, the LOA can be a powerful tool of spiritual formation. Beth believes and teaches that the LOA is how we are conformed to the image of Christ! You won’t want to miss this interesting and surprising conversation with a contemporary theologian who keeps the spotlight shining on Jesus while encouraging us to pursue all the blessings of the universe.

Beth’s Success Tips
How to pray in a way that will always receive a YES from God:
- Release your own desire to God’s desire. When the desire of your heart is in alignment with the desire of God’s heart, a synergy is created which will not be denied.
- Focus your prayer for God to be glorified in and through your request. No matter how the specifics of your prayer are answered, the request that God be glorified will be granted.
- Surrender your request to God’s will. You can ask for specifics, but yield them all to God’s better judgment, remember that God knows all the little details which you may not be privy to.
Ways to meditate which deepen your spiritual formation in the image of Christ:
- When meditating, allow yourself to be very still, very quiet and very aware. I prefer to meditate without music so I can really be in silent communion with God.
- In that stillness, be attentive and aware of God’s presence within you. Feel your own consciousness merged with God’s awareness, notice a sense of being One with God, as Jesus prayed that we would be. The Cross has removed any and all barriers of separation, real and imagined.
- Allow yourself to bathe in God’s love, mercy and grace. Feel it washing over you.
- When your mind begins to “chatter,” come back to a very still, quiet awareness of God’s presence.
- If it helps you to still your mind, focus on a breath prayer: breathe in (Je-) breathe out (-sus) or other two-syllable word, until you reenter the still, quiet awareness.
- Allow yourself to move into a deep experience of abiding peace all around and within you.
- End your meditation by focusing on gratitude for all that is in your life and let that gratitude carry you back into the “busy” world.
Practicing this meditative exercise daily, in addition to your spoken prayer and reading of the Word, will help you digest God’s word and internalize God’s character in a way which will form you more fully into Christ’s image.
