  1. I loved this post! Your word pictures are fascinating!
    I am also drawn to the table wondering what is on it smack in the middle of our enemies. A cup of blessing? Fruits of the Spirit? Bread of life? I wrote about this in my book Repurposed Faith. God bless your day!

  2. That is so beautiful. The way you put it. We can feast at the Lord table any time of the day. He is always there for us. I have saying in my kitchen. It says “Christ is the head of our house a guest at every be meal, a silent listener to Every conversation”. So Christ is. We can feast at his table any time of the day. By feasting at his table we are spending time in his word and prayer. Christ is that silent listener to our every conversation. Christ feast with us every day at our tablets. Even when we eat ordinary food and spiritual food. That is spending time in his word and prayer. So it is so good to know this. Plus to know in Psalm 23. The Psalm of David that the Lord is our shepherd. David was a shepherd boy and God used him. God can use us as well. Our God is amazing. Love you all incourage. Keep you all in Prayer. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xx

  3. “But what if I learned to fight my enemies by sitting down to feast?” Wow, Sarah. What an intriguing (convicting and inspiring) question! I’m going to have to mull this over for a while. What a counter-cultural, upside-down, lavishly loving, always-good God we serve. So grateful to have your words here on (in)courage!

  4. Sarah,

    Loved the word pictures you painted. Psalm 23 is full of vivid imagery. David clearly knew the goodness of God & realized there was nothing in this life to fear. He could feast on God’s wonderful bounty of love, grace & mercy. Praying we can all sit at the feast & kick those worries & lies to the curb. Enjoyed the image of your feast! Great post!

    Blessings 🙂

  5. Sarah, I somehow missed this! I love your words here, and I’m going to be sitting with them for awhile, letting the questions circle around in my thoughts for awhile today. Thank you for this post!
