May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14
I came across this verse about a week ago. I have been memorizing it for the past couple of days and I think I have it down. I know it isn't long, but sometimes I have a hard time keeping the words in the correct order! I also have been meditating on it throughout my days, trying to glean from it what the Lord would have me to learn.
I have found that picking a verse and focusing on it for a week or two is a great way for me to immerse myself in God's word. As a mom of four children and a home schooling one at that, I find the day has started and ended before I know it. This is one way that I can keep my mind on the things of the Lord. It isn't overly taxing to focus on a single verse and I can gain so much wisdom from God's words.
Another way I plan to focus on the Lord is to pray the verse I am learning over each of my children, myself and my husband. So with Psalm 19:14 it would go something like this...
Dear Heavenly Father,
May the words of Isaac's mouth and the meditation of his heart be pleasing to You. Help him to guard his thoughts and his words. Fill him with compassion and help him to speak with kindness. Help him to please You, His Rock and Redeemer.
How about you? How do you focus on the Lord during your busy days?
