Meditation

"Bible meditation is simply prolonged thought directed to a single object of truth. Your mental chambers where thoughts abide are the secret workshop of an unseen Sculptor, chiseling living forms for a deathless future. Personality and influence are molded here."  (A. T. Pierson)

Recently an article in our bulletin on meditation, which included this quote (thanks, Olin!) caught my attention.  I have slipped it into the sleeve of my binder where I see it every morning.  In the past I have tried to focus on one single thought for a lengthy period of time--without much success. Like most, I suspect,  my mind wandered very quickly into my daily doings. I still need to improve in that practice, but it occured to me that my year-long inquiry into the topic of trust is meditation!
WOW! That was encouraging!
 And, the habit of daily reading the verses, articles, and yes, even my little blog, has helped me to think about trust all throughout my day; especially, PRAISE GOD!, at moments when I NEED to remember to trust!

 Is that not the purpose of meditation?
