Meditation is a very broad word. Biblically speaking, it’s a time of focused, intentional thought. Using your imagination to better see reality. Meditation embraces the importance of talking to yourself rather than just always listening to your brain’s chatter.Psalm 42:5–6 NIV5 Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?
