Mindfulness is a new stress-reduction buzzword. CNN’s article describes mindfulness training. If we pay attention to God’s word, we’ll find that He provided that training much earlier:

Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations; (1 Chronicles 16:15 KJV)

Kimberly Williams defined it as "Mindfulness means to pay full attention to what you are doing, moment by moment."

Sounds easy? It really is not, is it? Maybe for us, but not for God. The Psalmist tell us that God always pays attention to mankind, and wonders why:

What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? (Psalms 8:4 KJV)

The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron. (Psalms 115:12 KJV)

And what do we get if we are mindful of Him?

He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great. The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children. Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth. (Psalms 115:13-15 KJV)

Why are things different here on earth?

The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD'S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men. (Psalms 115:16 KJV)

What have we done with it?

Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips: (Isaiah 17:10 KJV)

God continued sending His word to keep us mindful of Him:

That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: (2 Peter 3:2 KJV)

So, as mindfulness comes to the forefront of current buzzwords, remember to pay full attention to Him, and remember that we are His.


  1. Wonderful post. I immediate thought of this Scripture... Isaiah 26:3  "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee."

    What a wonderful benefit of being mindful of the Lord! Great post. :)

    You've a very wonderful weblog. Many people don't fully grasp what mind power can do to one's achievement.

Thank you for taking time to read and comment on the blog. Comments should take into consideration this verse: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8 KJV)
