Girds Up

Our scattered thoughts are like ungirded loins.

Yet God can gather up our scattered thoughts as a person girds up his loins.

How often our thoughts, though not unclean, are scattered and not focused.

In prayer and in the study of God’s Word, our mind will run wild.

Our thoughts may not be bad, but even good and tasteful thoughts are not conceived at the right time.

This is because the loins of our mind are too loose and not concentrated.

Yet God is well able to restrain our minds and bring our thoughts into focus.
