One of my favorite verses of the Psalms. The Psalmist reminds us that it is alright to stop our overloaded schedules and take time to meditate on God’s Word. Indeed, it is necessary! In Christianity, meditation is not disengaging the mind, but rather focusing the mind on God’s character and what He has told us. Laying aside distractions is a essential part of growth. Pulling the weeds that threaten to choke out our joy and peace is necessary. Vance Havner once said, “If you don’t come apart, you will come apart.” Let me encourage you ladies, especially those with busy schedules. Please take the time each day, even if it is just for a few minutes, to be still.
