My GOD Supplies ALL!

Praise my Father in Heaven! Even before we ...
chopped a few vegetables ...
... made a little sauce ...
... sliced a few loaves of bread ...
... frosted a little cake ...
BUSTED!
... made a little spaghetti ...
... and added a little more frosting ...
... He was already working in the hearts of His people! We are in a place of total dependency on Him. Through a time of intense prayer, He directed our steps. He spoke many things into our hearts (which really need to be in a Memorial Box Monday post!).
We knew He wanted us to keep trusting Him and not to step out ahead of Him. He reminded us often:
... for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. Psa 50:10
We're not talking pocket change here, or even airfare. We were asking for ... well, what is possible only with God! Clayton and I talked about whether we really should tell you the amount we needed. After all, it's beyond humbling, almost to the point of embarrassing. Beloved, I say it again, we serve a mighty God!
"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him," 1 Cor 2:9
It was a busy, fun, exhausting day. There were so many unfinished conversations as I tried to sit and chat and then noticed something needed to be done. We saw so many precious people walk through the serving line, and some were missing due to illness or distance. We have so many people to thank, and as I start thinking of names, I realize I am forgetting so many and I don't want to forget anyone. So you know who you are - we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for serving, praying, loving the Lord, giving your time and resources! Thank you, Brother Brian, for believing with us!
At the end of the day, "my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus." Phil 4:19
No doubt about it, when God calls His people to a task, He does not expect us to be equipped; He expects us to let Him equip and supply, even when the need is $21,000! In our pastor's words, "I stopped counting at 21!" Praise Him! I have been up many times in the night just offering praise!

I wish we had a list of all the people who came. My friend Lori gets the prize for driving the furthest, 2.5 hours!!
The cheerful clean-up crew sometime after 9:30 p.m.


Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord. 1 Cor 1:31
Thank you for responding to His call. May He receive the glory and praise!

Yippeee Jesus!! He's owns the cattle on a thousand hills and I guess who sold a herd, huh? Yippee, Yippee, Yippee Jesus!

And sweet sister, there is NO DOUBT that it wouldn't have happened quite like that if you & C hadn't had that time of fasting and prayer when God spoke hugely to you...NO DOUBT!! And that also is another MBox post!!

No wonder though - cause He is the Miracle-working, Mountain-moving, Awe-inspiring, Gasp-giving God!!

Rejoicing with you!!

Praising the Lord with you sister! He is an AMAZING AND GIVING GOD. I am still in awe struck over Him, because we serve a loving God, a giving God, a God who answeres prayers, a God that makes the impossible, possible, and a God who knows the plans for us, plans to prosper, plans of hope and a future! (Jeremiah 29:11). We thank you Lord for all you do! We love you Lord! We love you Clayton and Connie! :)
