The other day I read that life is not measured by the amount of breaths we take, but the moments that takes our breath away.
Last night we had another celebration dinner. Another moment where God took my breath away because of His goodness and faithfulness.
This was the fourth event where we invite the people of Salem Danville, spoiling them with most probably the biggest steak they have ever seen.
Now you might ask – why give a few poor people a big steak, if you can give bread to allot…?
When God spoke to us about a celebration dinner, where each and every person would be treated to dinner, we off course first thought of the money… how much would it cost us?
The cheapest and easiest to prepare was a “boere wors roll” – a traditional South African treat, almost like a hot dog.
But God asked Kobus: “What would you give a special friend visiting you?”
My husband specialty is a barbequed T-bone steak; so naturally, his answer would be a nice, juicy T-bone! God’s response… “Go and do the same…!”
So for the past four weeks, every Wednesday afternoon, he has been barbequing about 30 pieces of T-bone steaks.
So what took away my breath? Firstly His heart for the people of our congregation – to spoil them exceedingly, abundantly, above… How? With a BIG steak!
Secondly, the fact that He provides every cent for these celebration dinners.
It is so true… where God guides, God provides… even if it is a big steak!
