I love keeping track of the ways God takes care of me. It’s a joy to know He hears my pleas and then seeing how He creatively answers.
Today was one of those days.
I’m a kitchen manager in an elementary school. Our walk-in freezer has a ceiling light that the ballast needed to be replaced. The work order had been put in several weeks prior but we were waiting for a part. Anyway, it was pretty dark in there with just one bulb on the door end of the freezer. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Today was pizza day and it was discovered that apparently I mislabeled a case of cheese pizza as pepperoni during a delivery so on a subsequent order I under-ordered pepperoni thinking I already had a case, when in actuality, it was cheese. It was too late to try to find the pizza at another school. I actually prayed that God would intervene and make the kids hungry for cheese pizza instead of pepperoni.
Halfway through serving, with two grades left to go, one of the gals in the kitchen accidentally dropped a precious pepperoni pizza on the floor! Oh my goodness! It was getting very worrisome but all we could do was laugh at the circumstances and keep on going.
Indeed, we didn’t have to worry as God was in control. At the end of serving, we had nine pieces of cheese pizza left and zero pepperoni BUT not one child that wanted pepperoni pizza was denied. We had the exact amount that we needed even after dropping a whole pizza. It truly was amazing. GOD IS SO GOOD!
UPDATE 9/27/18–We have light in the freezer!
