He Stood at the Front Door

He stood at the front door of the Center. He and his wife had been here before, and we helped them because we offer one-time emergency assistance for those who are not our clients.  But now he was back asking only for a pacifier but needing so much more.  Due to difficult circumstances, he and his wife are caring for their grandbaby.

Our hearts were torn. Our clients go through so many diapers; we always need them.  Their baby wears size four diapers, and we have so few larger sizes. Besides, we had already helped them. So . . . we gave him a pack of 3 pacifiers – along with a pack of diapers and some formula. J

As soon as we handed him the pack of diapers, the phone rang. On the other end, a voice said, “Hello, I’m from Parkwood Baptist Church, and my ladies’ group has collected diapers for the Center.  Can I bring them by, today?” God is so good! Within the hour, the Center was blessed with numerous packs of diapers.  Among the different sizes there were 2 packs of size 4 diapers! We had nervously given away 1 pack of size 4 diapers, but God graciously gave us 2 packs of size 4 – plus many more!

My God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
