    I particularly like this verse "But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night." Isn't that great? I love the word "meditate" day and night because it is relaxing. I just looked in the dictionary.
    Rest, Relaxing and Meditation are healthy mechanisms of improving the mind and or the neurons, as it is all the same thing, my current study. (maybe a pun?)

    The hidden power of God's word comes alive in every area of our lives when we eat it daily and write upon the tablet of our heart. Most importantly, living to the true measure of the word yields through transformation of mind and spirit. Therefore anchoring us so deep in Christ, we remain unscale by surface movement and produce superior fruits that impact others.
