Loaves and Fishes, C. 2011
After being unemployed for nearly two months and having no income, it was difficult for me to find something to eat.
I went through my pantry and found only a few items that I could consume – a can of beans and a half bag of rice that had been sitting there for ages.
I thought, “Well, I guess if I get hungry, this will suffice.”
I remember going downstairs a day later and upon exiting my building, would you believe several grocery items were sitting on a bench? That caught my attention.
I thought, “Wow, I can use these!” But there were people around the premises, so I figured the items belonged to them and just kept on walking.
About a half hour later, I went back to see if the items were still there. I knew they would compliment the few things I had at home to eat.
What was left behind on the bench were four cans of tomato sauce and a container of my favorite Extra Virgin Olive Oil – exactly what I use to cook with.
I added them to my canned beans and cooked my rice and had enough to eat for four days. What a blessing!
I know God brought them to me, because He knew I didn't have the means. I felt very fortunate that God reached out to me when I was in need.
It made my entire week blissful.
Thank you, God for your Blessings :-))))))))))))))))
When you are most in need... know that He is there for you!
