Today I was able to put some canned food in my food pantry at my church. This pantry has been a vision of mine for about two years. God put it on my heart, but I guess I wasn’t ready for the duties and hours it was going to take to make this happen at the time.
With the help of others from my church family, it’s finally almost ready.
While talking with God, I asked him, “Are you sure this is what I’m meant to do?” Not getting the answer right away, I doubted God. But then the answer came when I received a phone call from a family who needed food.
God doesn’t always answer us on our time, but the answer always comes.
I’ve been where these people are with little food wondering how I will feed my family. No one should ever have to worry about going hungry. God will always provide a way for His people.
As my son and a friend of ours were unloading the truck, my son asks, “Mom, why did you name the pantry ‘5 Loaves’?”
My friend told him to think about it.
My son then said, “I know when they said to Jesus ‘There is nothing here with us but five loaves and two fish.’”
I said, “Yes, you are right, son.” Proud moment for mom.
This comes from the passage of scripture in Luke 9:16 where it says, “Taking the five loaves and two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people.”
God will never let His people go without.
Please let me know how God has blessed you.
The recipe for this week is Cream Chicken With Biscuits.
Cream Chicken With Biscuits
1 to 2 cups flour
4 large chicken breast with skin on
1 spoonful chicken base
1 can chicken broth
After washing the chicken, put chicken in the pot. Add chicken bouillon and add water to cover over chicken. Cook until chicken is done.
Pick chicken off bone. Take broth and strain into another pot. Add chicken to broth, bring to boil. Add another spoon of chicken base if needed. Check the taste before you add chicken base, as it makes it salty.
Take flour and milk to make slurry. Add to broth to make it thick. If it gets too thick you can add chicken broth to thin down.
Bake some biscuits. I usually use store-bought biscuits.
