Psalms 5:1-2 -- On Thinking with God

"Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.
Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray."
Psalms 5:1-2

This is a good reminder that we need to stop sometimes.  Not stop thinking entirely, but stop thinking about worries and things that we can't control.  Stop the madness, if you will. :)  Instead, we need to retreat from all of that, find our inner calm, and think about God.  Think about our lives, think about who we are, who we want to be, and how to get from here to there.  Think about how to address the things that we can control... how we react to people, how we show our love, how we can improve the choices that we make.

Prayer is just thinking *with* God.  Inviting him into our thoughts, asking him to help us change and improve, and guide us to where we can make a difference. He knows it already of course, but he can't help us unless we participate, and think, and listen.  Which is why we have to stop the distractions sometimes, retreat from the crowd, and find time to sit and ponder and pray.

Today, let's find the time to think, and consider, and make good decisions, all in the company of, and with the help of, God.  Let's include him in our lives, and think with him, and of him, often.
