A few weeks ago, I was supposed to pick up pastries on Saturday for church on Sunday. I forgot. When I realized I started to be upset with myself for forgetting. I decided to pray and ask God to provide even though I forgot.
On Sunday morning, I prayed again before heading out for church. When I arrived, I went in the kitchen to check out the situation. I was hoping for the usual small box of pastries-- mabye someone else picked them up on accident. Instead I was met with more than 10 boxes full of pastries. I was blown away. I went and found Justin ( our pastor) and asked him what the deal was. He said that a lady at our church had brought them in for us to put out for Sunday morning. She works for a caterer and they were extras.
I was encouraged. God showed His overwhelming mercy towards me in that moment. I was expecting a little and He overwhelmed me with a lot. How cool is our God?
