Wait…do we have enough Meatballs?

Posted on September 19, 2019 by America's Keswick in Victory Call

I remember a funny thing that happened here at America’s Keswick many years ago. I came to work thinking that it would be a normal night … HA HA!! As you can tell it soon became a little interesting. Oh the lessons we learn daily from the Lord.

Well a group came in that night and as they headed in the Dining Room, the Dining Room staff was not prepared for them to eat. Somehow we did not have them listed for dinner. We as a team hurried around to make sure tables were set, checked to see if we had enough food and all the rest of the necessary details.

After all was said and done, the men were fed and happy and we had more food then we needed. Myself and our dining room hostess stood there and laughed. When she went back to confirm about the food (even though we did not have them listed for dinner) – somehow we ended up with more trays of food than planned.

Now how did that happen? As I stood there the thoughts in my head were…”We are in His service and these are His people and why would we think that He did not go before us and prepare what was needed?” The Bible tells us in Psalms that He goes before us, behind us and all around us.

Oh what little faith we have. To think that we were worried about – “did we have enough meatballs”!!

This is just a funny reminder to all of us that the Lord tells us again and again that He will provide our needs in spite of our mistakes. Lynn W

Matthew 6:26 (NIV) “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”

Think About This: God wants to see prayers that are filled with genuine praise and thanksgiving for what He has done in the past. He wants our hearts to be filled with awe and gratitude for His blessings. He wants us to set up memorials in our hearts testifying to the provisions He has given us. – Michael Youssef
