Led to the Banquet Hall tells how God brought Gilana Young out of an appallingly abusive childhood to a place at His magnificent, healing table. Over decades of faithfully sitting with and following Him, she has come to experience nine precious gifts which are available to all His children – the gift of being called, of love, of forgiveness, of relationship, of adoption, of belonging, of restoration, of life and of ‘clothing’.
As she recounts her journey through various jobs, health challenges and relationships, we see God gently preparing her for each next step, including into ordination and hospice chaplaincy. The importance of spiritual retreats and immersing ourselves in Him is highlighted throughout as a key to enjoying the blessings of His banqueting hall.
As you read Gilana’s story, be inspired to reflect on your own walk with the Lord and what He may be saying to you now.
