Let him lead me to the banquet hall, and let his banner over me be love. - Song of Songs 2:4 (NIV)
I found my toddler on the stairs, contentedly shoving rocks into his mouth. I fished the rocks out and carried him to the table to eat dessert. He didn’t appreciate that. He flailed and screamed, frustrated that I would tear him away from his treasure. But when he finally saw...
Today I will let God lead me to the banquet table.
For God’s desires to be my desires

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
