It is official. Sadly, as of today my former blog "Teacups and Time" has been officially deleted. **heavy sigh** I am grateful for all that precious little corner of cyberspace brought to me. I share a post that was originally found there.
I enter the sanctuary hungry and tired this crisp morning. The sum total of who I am seeks to be satiated. Many things have attempted to gratify but in them is found only a temporary release. Soon, the appetite returns more ravenous than before. At this table, the banquet is set and the feast is to begin. I wait with anxious expectation for the honored guest to arrive.
I am not left wanting or waiting long. Soon, upon my cheek I feel the warmth of His breath whispering softly to my spirit, “You are my beloved.” In His embrace, I feel the letting go of all that binds my spirit to the emptiness within. In the gentleness of His caress, I sense the beckoning to draw closer.
As I gather here, I find Him vivid, palpable and alive. The totality of who I am has hungered for this encounter. In my want, I have struggled for this moment. At this table, my striving is surrendered to His presence - my doing is captured by His being.
A captivity of grace – may I never find release!
