Shortly after my eyes opened this morning, I began to pray, “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”
Then I started to wonder… are the meditations of my heart pleasing to God…those things that I chew on throughout the day, perhaps left unsaid but still ruminating in my heart and mind?
How about you? Are the meditations of your heart pleasing to God? What are you thinking about throughout your day? What is your default mode? What thoughts are running in the background of your mind as you go through your day?
We may not have control over the first thought that comes to mind unbidden, but we do get to choose the second. We are responsible for that which we choose to think and meditate on.
Today, will you consciously choose acceptable and pleasing heart meditations?
May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the Lord. Ps 104:34
