A friend once said this, “when I get to heaven, I want to ask God why He made us to eat more than once a day. If people only needed to eat that regularly there would be a lot less problems in He world.”
The reality is when a person can only eat one meal a day, (so many would consider this a luxury) it has a very negative impact on people’s lives. The truth is not being able to eat healthy food regularly negatively impacts people’s lives.
Have you ever thought of food as giving people dignity? Or hope? Or the ability to dream of a better future? That’s why I believe so much in our Boaz 100,000 meal love story.
The money we are raising to make an impact in people’s lives will be used at our feeding centres in Honduras. We will go there and be able to supply much needed funding for these families to eat. Meals of hope, love and a future.
I often listen to a song by Matthew West, “Do Something”, his words challenge me:
I woke up this morning
Saw a world full of trouble now, thought
How’d we ever get so far down, and
How’s it ever gonna turn around
So I turned my eyes to Heaven
I thought, “God, why don’t You do something?”
Well, I just couldn’t bear the thought of
People living in poverty
Children sold into slavery
The thought disgusted me
So, I shook my fist at Heaven
Said, “God, why don’t You do something?”
He said, “I did, yeah, I created you” (now listen)
If not us, then who
If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something, yeah
If not now, then when
Will we see an end
To all this pain
Oh, it’s not enough to do nothing
It’s time for us to do something
I’m so tired of talking about
How we are God’s hands and feet
But it’s easier to say than to be
Live like angels of apathy who tell ourselves
It’s alright, “somebody else will do something”
Well, I don’t know about you
But I’m sick and tired of life with no desire
I don’t want a flame, I want a fire and
I wanna be the one who stands up and says
“I’m gonna do something”
