A God-sized Task

A friend of mine called it a God-sized task today.  When I first heard the initial numbers this morning, I thought the same thing--only a big God can do this.  This afternoon, when I heard the next set of numbers, my heart started racing...Did we bite off too much?  Are we going to be able to live up to our word?  If it's this much now, what will it be like next month as we gear up for Christmas?

If you know anything about me, you know how near and dear to my heart Lovepacs is.  It seriously brings me life every time I leave a meeting or talk to someone about it.  It's one of those weird "this is what I was created for" kind of things.  Do you ever have those moments when you KNOW you are doing exactly what God has for you in that moment?  I do with Lovepacs.

This morning, I thought we would be feeding @300 kids in Frisco.  This afternoon, I learned that it is over 400.  Can you imagine?  In a city like Frisco, there are 400 kids who may not eat over Thanksgiving break.  400!  That's almost an elementary school in itself.  And that's only the 10 neediest schools.  There are still 43 other schools!

So, I admit, my faith wavered for a minute.  But then I remembered that I serve a BIG God.  And I KNOW He loves these kids more than I do.  And I am confident He is working in lives all over the city of Frisco and will be prompting people to give. 

And those 408 kiddos will not go hungry this Thanksgiving. 

If you would like to be a part of helping to feed these kids, please go to our website at www.lovepacs.org or contact me at angel@lovepacs.org
