Milk Crates

My family takes a mobile library to children in a mobile home park. A key ingredient in this ministry is plastic milk crates. The library books go in the milk crates thus making them critical. Unfortunately recently we ran out of milk crates as well as two of our resources in obtaining them.

I work at three grocery stores and none were in the mood to give me the milk crates sitting around the store. At one store they were stacked 10 feet high, but they would not release them to me. So God did and here is how it happened. As I was walking off of one dock I heard a familiar voice, it was the voice of a former church member. We got to talking and guess what he delivers to the stores? You got it, milk.

Obviously I did not waste any time asking him for some crates and he did not waste anytime filling my car up with them. He said if you need more just ask; I smiled. God worked it out.

Perhaps you have a need, a big need! Have you asked God about it? Be on guard if you have because you never know how he might meet that need. If God cares about milk crates for a small library, I assure you He cares about your needs as well.

Philippians 4:19, ‘And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.’
