Joshua 1:8 ” Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”

So many times I get into the Bible,  only to not be able to remember a single thing I read an hour later.  It’s not that I  don’t want to glean wisdom from the Word…it’s just that my mind wanders and my attention wanes.  Meditation simply means to contemplate, reflect, or dwell upon…which then takes reading the Bible to a whole different level.  When I can take a passage I’m reading and ponder how I can apply it practically  to my life…the scripture will then morph into a plan, and an aspiration for me.  I can take what I just read and apply it to my life and it then becomes part of me.
