I love the daily discovery of how God moves through his people to meet a need. It’s like watching a complicated puzzle come together knowing God’s got all the pieces.
Last week, on Tuesday, we learned of a young woman, pregnant, sleeping on an air mattress. We had just offered the last bed set to another family. We were disappointed we couldn’t meet the need right away, but we lifted her request to God and waited to see how He would answer.
Thursday morning, friends of Love INC called to ask if we needed a Queen mattress in good condition. They loaded their pick-up truck with a beautiful pillow-topped queen-sized mattress. As I helped carry their piece of the puzzle into our warehouse, I assured them the mattress was going to good home. They remarked, “I just wish we had a box spring to go with it!” We all smiled when I pointed out a queen-sized box spring leaning against the wall.
Marcia, an Alpine Chapel volunteer, helping to prepare the delivery, noticed we were out of queen-sized sheets. She came back early the next morning, with a set of beautiful sheets to make sure this young mother could use her bed right away.
This is how God works in and through us. God motivates one to give and another to serve. In this way we work together while giving God the glory for putting all the right pieces in place.
Thank you for your part, your heart in helping us help others in the name of Christ.
