Playing in your mind
Have you ever had a song stuck in your mind, one that kept coming back even though it wasn’t being sung or played? As I pondered this scripture, I realized being able to remember can be a very good blessing. I also know some memories can be difficult and cause pain. It’s so important what we choose to put into our minds so what we recall (even when we don’t intend to-like the song that just keeps playing in our head) becomes a blessing. I think that’s why God told the Israelites to meditate on His word. When their focus was on Him, they could find internal blessings.
Meditating means we linger with God. It’s what God wants. How are you doing with lingering this week? Perhaps a better question would be, what keeps playing over in your mind? Whatever it is, does it bring a blessing to your heart?
