Psalms 19:14 NLT May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O lord , my rock and my redeemer.
And it takes time to slow down everything, and let all the noise of the world fade away.
Put the cell phone away, social media way.
Then write them down. And put them aside for later.
It’s not easy, but it is essential to our souls.
It could be a prayer walk, it could be a prayer jog, it could be time on public transportation.
One practical tip is to use instrumental music with no words or lyrics to drown out the world.
Resist the urge to sing along
Taking time to meditiate on the greatness of God takes time, but it’s worth it. And just like the psalmist encourages us, it reinforces the truth to us. God our Lord is our rock and our redeemer.
Then take the time to go back and slowly read Psalms 19 , or other verses. It’s deep with truth and wonder.
That kind of depth and power didn’t come from jotting some notes down on a napkin in a rush between running errands
It was inspired by the spirit of God.
We find the love we need for people in our lives
We find the soul nourishing embrace of God.
We find the power to go out into the world and be his agents of change and life.

IAM Deep in thought
IAM Redeemed by our Lord
