The journey from your head into your heart may lead you through a dark and lonely landscape. Things in your head are about what you think. Things in your heart are about who you are. Meditation on scripture is a discipline that can bring light to this part of your journey.
It leads to a place where you will encounter God. “Meditation on the scriptures teaches the soul the discourse with God,” writes an ancient Christian desert guide known as Isaac the Syrian. Here you suspend your thinking so that the Word can invade your heart.
Where do want to live, in your head or in your heart? Consider this – your heart is the wellspring of life and the place where Jesus and the Father want to dwell in you. This journey is well worth your effort. Why don’t you get on the path of meditation on scripture? It always leads toward the light.
