God will provide for our needs, but he may do so in unusual or roundabout ways. An illustration of this is found in a Guideposts article on an interesting donation to a food pantry. A local restaurant showed up unannounced and unexpected with 193 boxes of breakfast cereal. They had launched a cereal box drive for the food pantry. While trying to figure out what to do with so many boxes of breakfast cereal they hadn’t asked for, the food pantry received an email from a local public school teacher. The at-risk children were not getting enough to eat at lunch, and they wanted to start a breakfast program. Did the food pantry have any food they could contribute?
