All that you need


"If you don't see what you need, just ask" was the invitation issued for the Preacher's Party this week. "If you don't see what you need, just ask"
It's an invitation we often make when we have company, though I'd normally say "Now, what have I forgotten?"
But as I read that invitation this morning "If you don't see what you need, just ask" it struck me that that would make a wonderful invitation to the table. Our generous and extravagant God invites us in to a sharing of abundance and would not hesitate to urge: "I f you don't see what you need, just ask"

If you don't see what you need, just ask!
Thank you God for inviting us in to your abundance
Thank you for ensuring we have all we need
Thank you for inviting us to simply say
if there is something else we'd like
But with your unconditional love
and your amazing grace
your boundless compassion
and your extravagant giving of yourself
what more could we want?
So, thank you
for making space for us at your table
and for encouraging us
to ask for what we need.
