Each month I am blessed with the opportunity to welcome volunteers for our Serve Saturday event. A chance to invite others into our community, to learn more about The Greenhouse for People, meet & interact with our members, and help take care of our facilities. Some are regulars, but this month we had quite a few new faces…which is always exciting.
Before everyone arrives, I gather the mops, brooms, buckets, and other cleaning supplies and equipment that we’ll need for the day. As I prepared for our event last Saturday, I noticed we were getting low on some of cleaning supplies and would need to order more soon. However, to my surprise and delight, some of the volunteers, including a new one, brought an assortment of needed supplies with them. How did they know? Who told them? It was just what we needed, and at the right time. Just like our Father in Heaven.
2 Corinthians 9:8 says “And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work”.
Our Heavenly Father, the Great Provider, knows what and how much we need…delivering it in His perfect timeliness. At Hope Street, He brings us countless volunteers with humble & compassionate hearts, equipped with an abundance of skills and talents. He fills our storehouses, multiplies financial resources, removes obstacles, and paves the way for His kingdom work to be done. For each of us, when we cry out to Him, even in those times when we don’t know what to ask for…there He is with us...ready with an ample supply of what only He knows we need.
Thank You Father! For being who you say you are. The Great, I Am. We’re thankful you know us inside and out, and what we need. And when we need it, You deliver. Quiet our hearts, bring rest to our souls, replenish us with your goodness, and fill us with your Spirit…so you can do a great work in us…for Your Glory and Honor. In Jesus’ name…Amen!
