SIX WAYS TO MEDITATE ON A VERSE

1. Picture it! Visualize the scene in your mind (What smells; sounds; voice inflections do you picture? etc.)
2. Punch it! Repeat the verses aloud emphasizing a different word each time
3. Paraphrase it! Rewrite the verse in your own words
4. Personalize it! Replace the pronouns or people in the verse with your own name
5. Pray it! Turn the verse into a prayer and pray it back to God
6. Probe it! Ask the questions above
