This was inspired by my best friend and the amazing music she has been writing.
There’s one particular line one of her songs I can’t get out of my head…”Let my meditation be pleasing to you”.
Every thought we have is a stitch that becomes the fabric of our lives. Yesterday as I was meditating on how sorry I was for myself as I cleaned up my sick children’s vomit and dia…ahem…the other thing, this line kept going through my mind. As I meditated on how crappy it was that I can never sleep in on a Saturday and do what I want to do because I have too many responsibilities, this line kept going through my head. As I sorrowed over the dirty dishes and agonized over all the things I had to do and sacrifices I had to make despite the fact that I was sick with strep throat and so tired from being up with the kids every night for a week, this line kept going through my head.
I failed miserably yesterday. But today in church guess what scripture verse came up during the sermon?
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.
I will learn yet.
Yikes…Your post really convicted me!
