Sometimes Christian meditation is a quiet time to refocus our mind and body on re-submitting to God in this moment.

Psalm 130:1–8 ESV

1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD!

2 O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy! 

3 If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? 

4 But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared. 

5 I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; 

6 my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning. 

7 O Israel, hope in the LORD! For with the LORD there is steadfast love, and with him is plentiful redemption.

8 And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

David writes about the negative effects on his body when he was living out of sync with God.

Psalm 38:3–8 NIV

3 …There is no health in my body; there is no soundness in my bones because of my sin. 

4 My guilt has overwhelmed me like a burden too heavy to bear. 

5 My wounds fester and are loathsome because of my sinful folly. 

6 I am bowed down and brought very low; all day long I go about mourning. 

7 My back is filled with searing pain; there is no health in my body. 

8 I am feeble and utterly crushed; I groan in anguish of heart.
