Walk with HIM: Eating from the Lord’s table!

on

holy experience

I know this isn’t Wednesday but on Tuesday’s I take part in the WALK with HIM Wednesdays @ the Holy Experience blog.

A quote from Ann @ Holy Experience:

Every Wednesday, we Walk with Him, posting a spiritual practice that draws us nearer to His heart.

****************************

Today I am sharing a post from my “Today is for Reflection” series:

Lord, I want to be consumed with hunger for you!  So why am I not hungrier than I am?

I know exactly why, Lord and I am so sorry for it.

You see Lord, I still choose to fill up on so many empty calories. I am not saying that what I consume is all junk but so much of it is just empty of any spiritual goodness. Most of what I do, hear, see and speak isn’t tearing me away from you, yet it isn’t bringing me any nearer to you.

I have tasted, I’ve seen and I know the goodness of you Lord!

So why do I take so many useless bites and fill myself up on emptiness?

Stir me Lord to turn away from my table and to daily and hourly turn and eat from you table, to sit with you, to consume that which will not only taste good but can only benefit me and that which will draw me nearer to your truth, your essence, your goodness! Lord, I am also asking for you to stir my hunger so that I will share your table with the world!

Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

Psalm 119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

 

You know something Lord, I’m starting to feel pretty hungry…………….

    Thank you for your beautiful insights. I normally participate in “Walk With Him” but not today. After reading Ann’s post, I looked at the list below of others and clicked on you. So perfect for me this day. Your words, the picture, the LORD speaking to my heart.
    May your day be blessed and filled with the LORD.
    Caring, ~ linda

    Ah yes, not tearing me away from Him but not bringing me closer to Him. Thank you for this analogy. It spoke to me. Dianne

  3. Beautiful words and thoughts. Yes, we too often aren’t hungry for him because we fill up elsewhere. Thanks for reminding me where I can get the best meal!

    Blessings,
    Lisa

    our post really hits home..in more ways than one. I love this, “You see Lord, I still choose to fill up on so many empty calories”. An excellent analogy…. I’m still working on both. I don’t even miss PEOPLE magazine anymore:) Thankyou for your insights…And Thank you for dropping by my corner of the web.

    Blessings~Nora

    Beautiful and nicely stated! We’ve all felt that…a longing for MORE of HIM but yet…still not hungry enough! Keep seeking HIM, sister in Christ!

    As I think of getting rid of things in my life that keep me from living completely for him, I too want that hunger for Him. I don’t want empty calories but meat from His word that will make me strong and faithful for His work.
    Thank you for the thought provoking post.
    Grace to you
