“ Come to the table. ”

We reside in world of drive-thru, fast-food, and take-out. Quick, quickly, quick. We withstand consume more than we sit. We multitask, run and consume, consume on the fly. We do not pertain to the table. It just takes excessive time.

“ Come to the table.

.

Taste and see. ”

This was exactly what the Lord was beckoning me to do today. Every fiber of the old me wished to run, to hurry to the next stop. We had another leg [on] our journey to come to the Recreational Vehicle park where we would be remaining for my next travel nurse project. The control-freak, duck-in-a-row personality was prepared to obtain there. She wished to see the brand-new environments, to guarantee there wasn’ t an issue, to draw up the drive to work (a complete 3 days ahead of time), and to obtain to the next action. That part of me wished to be and rush done, however my spirit stated, be still.

Slow done. Unwind. Kick back. Enjoy yourself. That’ s exactly what the Holy Spirit whispered to my heart.

“ Come to the table.Dine with me

. ”

That ’ s what my Father welcomed. To communicate me, to take a seat together, actively, and to make that concrete choice to see and taste that the Lord readies. When I hurried and ran I missed out on those minutes with Him. When I rushed occasionally I couldn’ t hear His voice. When I raced about desperately I enabled my to-dos to sidetrack me from His existence. I lost out on the banquet table. I missed out on a sit-down supper with Dad in favor of busyness. Life had needs, constantly, however there was likewise the option. The option to sit.

“ Come to the table. ”

We had actually driven exactly what was expected to take 4 hours to our present stop, however that had really taken 7 hours with terrible traffic and restroom breaks. We had actually established our 5th wheel after dark, on an uneven, irregular website, with irritated, starving kids. We had actually slept long and hard, however as I sat alone on the sofa drinking coffee with the Lord today I seemed like He was calling me to rest some more! It was so simple to obtain in the regimen of hurrying, to dive into diversion uninformed, to stand consuming so you might proceed to the next job, and because rushed way of life you missed out on household supper. You missed out on time with the Father. And in missing out on dinnertime, you likewise missed out on the true blessing. God speaks health, recovery, and plentiful true blessing into the lives of His kids, however we need to take part and stop to even get.

“ Come to the table. ”

Today I accepted the call to be still, to rest, to wait, to see and taste. We extended our remain at the park we had actually visited at, we postponed our arrival to the next. We hung out together, we rode a golf cart, we took pleasure in the charm around us, we consumed it in. We saw the present of God through nature, time with one another, and merely decreasing enough to enjoy His goodness to us. Where stillness of heart lives, so too does peace.

“ Come to the table.”

Is God welcoming you to supper, today?
