As quoted on Some Thoughts:
For even though our eyes, in whatever direction they may turn, are compelled to gaze upon God’s works, yet we see how changeable is our attention, and how swiftly are dissipated any godly thoughts that may touch us.
– From John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, I.xiv.2.
Man, ain’t that the truth!
Some undissipated godly thoughts would be wonderful. I think those long neglected disciplines of meditation, stillness, and silence perhaps hold the key.
Praying for undissipated meditation on the One most deserving of our attentions today . . .
. . . and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
– Psalm 46:10 (ESV)
