Feasting Continually (Word-Filled Wednesday)

"The cheerful heart


has a continual feast."

Proverbs 15:15

Baby Girl eats with gusto.  Now, I like food, and I actually think about it quite a bit.  The munchkins get hungry around here and expect three square meals a day and a snack in between.  I enjoy planning, preparing and partaking of deliciousness.  But I don't always relish it the way Baby Girl does.  She digs in with no thoughts of decorum.  She doesn't worry about what other people think of her as she enjoys her meals.  She even makes noises sometimes when it's particularly delightful, and her face beams her pleasure.

She feasts.  Continually.

She feasts like I wish to live in Christ:  unashamed, unhindered, undignified, and with unadulterated joy.  I want to be satisfied and happy in the God I worship.  Always.

"I will celebrate before the LORD.  I will become even more undignified than this" (2 Samuel 6:21-22).

I'm digging into His Word today with both hands and my whole heart.  Care to join me?

excellent comparison. And, a pretty cute little baby girl also.

AGAIN, this is PRICELESS! I LOVE this analogy! If we would 'eat' and 'enjoy' and 'appreciate' and 'savor' the way she is, what appreciation we'd have for the One who gives it all!

I will take this with me ALL day!
I've been blessed!

Priceless expression on her!

peace,
lori

Mary said...

Oh, that is just too cute!! She is not concerned about being undignified is she? That's why God says to come to Him as a little child! Thanks for sharing. And thanks for stopping by my place. It's always good to "see" you! :)

Karen said...

This was all so precious...those sparkling eyes...so enraptured...I have to wonder if He sees me that way? Oh, I hope so....

Carrie said...

You are a woman after my own heart! Make it about food, and I will *get* it! ;)

I love the verses about God being our portion ... and there's no need for portion control!!

Hope you have a blessed day today!

What a cutey-pie! I love her exhuberance in cheerfully feasting! Our 2 year old grandson tried to eat soup with his fingers today; he thought it was great! His mommy got him a spoon and he loved that too! Such joy! I want to always feast upon His Word and to worship Him with relish!

In joy,
Laurie

Kaye said...

Awesome! I love the verse from David in Samuel- to worship God with recklessness- it is child-like.

I absolutely love this! I wish I could watch her eat. I have been known to make delicious noises when something is divine tasting as well. That's a girl after my own heart. Gorgeous!
