me of little faith

Below is an excerpt from an email of the person who submitted the need that was posted the day of TNC's Christmas communion service. If you don't remember, the need was for items of clothing and toys for two little boys who are victims of sexual abuse by a family member. The boys are now being cared for by their grandmother and that is who is mentioned in the email below. This is a good example of how many of us probably feel when we see people with needs that we want to help, but we don't know exactly how God will provide for us as we try to help them. She turned to Link'd Up for help with meeting the needs of the little boys and the rest is His-story.

...... it was awesome taking her the stuff. I was truly over-whelmed with the generosity of whoever all it was - and on such short notice. I'll confess - I had decided it wasn't going to happen and I was just going to try and put everything on my credit card. After that night (and sorry I misunderstood and kept y'all waiting) God kept bringing to mind "ye of little faith" - except it was "me of little faith." So anyway, I was so excited when I saw everything. Nothing like an answered prayer sitting on your kitchen counter. I took her the stuff Christmas Eve - she got teary-eyed (again). I met more of the family, and the kids were running around (very excited too). I gave her a "fish" card - turns out she lives about 5 minutes from the new Columbia County campus - probably not a coincidence. So you can keep that in your prayers - I would love for all of them to come. Anyway, thank you for your help. It's neat to be so obviously reminded of how good God is and how much He cares for all of us.
