It still amazes me how clear life becomes (what is important to focus on, gaze upon, and what can be relegated to just a glance) during worship. When our focus is no longer on the things that demand attention, but rather on the One that gives life and gives strength and gives love, we are in a place where we can receive direction, wisdom, and clarity.
Meditation is not the clearing of the mind, but rather comes from the same root word that means ” to chew on.” What we chew on, what we spend time extracting nutrition from, drives not only what you do, but who you are.
Worship is good food even though it is not meant solely for you. It is one of those paradoxes of God’s Kingdom.
