Come to the Table…

When I was younger one of my favorite parts of the Bible to read was the book of proverbs. I loved hearing the sage old advice from ancient times that applied as much to my life then and now as it did when it was first written. 

One passage in particular came to my mind often growing up:

Do not put yourself forward in the king’s presence

or stand in the place of the great,

for it is better to be told, “Come up here,”

than to be put lower in the presence of a noble.

For me, this passage reminded me to stay humble, both in my actions and my words, and to realize that the decision of my importance did not rest in my own hands but in my Heavenly Father’s love for me. 

Knowing how important I and you both are in the eyes of our Heavenly Father means we never have to seek out admiration or recognition but we can be content knowing our Heavenly Father already knows all, has called us his beloved, and invites us unworthy servants to come up and sit at the table with Him forever. 

This week be at peace in Your heavenly father’s recognition and love.

​I am a recovering burned out workaholic​ who forgot I couldn't change the world. From the ashes of that not only have I found a peace from God that I never knew but a focus on what matters, God, family and loving my neighbor as God has loved me. My burning out experiences really drive my writing and how much I want to share all of the good God has worked through the hurt I've experienced. Currently I serve a great little parish in Northern Ohio with my wonderful family and our furry farm of five dogs, four cats and the oddball handful of fish. You can find me at
