Invited

 

I invite you
to My table

not in order to
be repaid

but to offer you
all I have

all of which
I’m made.

You establish a place for me at Your table.

“When you give a dinner or a supper, do not ask your friends, your brothers, your relatives, nor your rich neighbors, lest they also invite you back and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind.” Luke 14:12,13 NKJV

All The Days Of His Life

“So Jehoiachin changed from his prison garments, and he ate bread regularly before the king all the days of his life.”  2 Kings 25:29

“And as for his provisions, there was a regular ration given him by the king, a portion for each day, all the days of his life.”  2 Kings 25:30

Jehoiachin was blinded and locked away, but not forgotten forever.

Lord, thank You for bringing out the imprisoned and letting us sit at Your table for the rest of our days.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

My Portion

What more could I ask
than to be at the table with You

cared for by Your presence       
included in what You do

my needs being met
each and everyday

never going hungry
fed by You always.

Showbread

“And you shall set the showbread on the table before  Me always.”  Exodus 25:30

Showbread in Hebrew translates to Bread of the Presence or “presence bread”.  God instructs a special table to be made that holds the showbread.  Each sabbath new bread would be brought in to replace the old.

O Lord, make my life into a table that displays Your glory and presence . . . You being My daily bread.  And here’s a simple poem .

Bread of the Presence

Some bread arrives in bags
with an expiration date
but ours rises from His presence
and fully fills our plates
while He sits with the Father
in a perpetual Holy state
and yet remains here with us
should we care to come partake.
