§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

Joshua 1:8 Thought/Prayer:  A Mistype with Meaning?          12-31-2012

“This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success.”  WEB (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)


Well, it was a typo.  One mistyped letter.  But something about the mistake caught my attention, and I figured out why.  The typo itself sort of had an extra bit of meaning, a bit of a new slant on what I was trying to say.  Here it is:

I meant to type, “We read our Bibles and we memorize words, and we meditate on them.”  But I typed:  We read our Bibles and we memorize words, and we medicate on them.  Not meditate, but mediCate.  Just a slip of a fingertip – but still . . . maybe a bit of truth indirectly here. 

Yes, we should meditate on scripture, such as we read in this verse from Joshua.  But, is it possible to “medicate” on scripture?  Maybe.  Of course we wouldn’t want to true-life medicate ourselves to detriment with prescription or over-the-counter drugs.  Sometimes that is the connotation we put with someone medicating themselves.  Over-medicating.

But when it comes to God’s Word, perhaps we can “medicate”with it.  If we are having a health problem (in real-life) we know there are medications that can help.  So, why not in the spiritual-health realm?  If we have spiritual problems, yes, we can meditate on scripture regarding the situation; but maybe that then becomes a sort of medication for our spirits.  Can meditating, medicate?  In this way, it seems that it can.

So do we go around telling everyone that we are medicating ourselves with Bible verses?  Probably some folks would understand that quickly and entirely, especially if they are, or know of someone, who writes down zany thoughts about things such as this.  But some people would just think, “Whhhaaaa”?  So be selective about telling others of your spiritual medication.  Perhaps.

Lord, thank you for the chance to even think of Your word, the scriptures, being a balm for our spirits.  Yes, we can “medicate” with verses that are meaningful.  Thank you for typos that can, perhaps, be turned into typos-for-good!  And help us, even with the mistakes we make in life while trying to help those in pro-life dilemmas, work our efforts for good, behind the errors.

Topics:  Pray for the ability to turn mistakes in life into some thing positive, especially for those to whom we minister in LIFE issues.
