In times of financial trials, I’m finding the GREAT benefit of having a full freezer. One thing I LOVE is to be able to provide a meal to those in need: either those in financial need or those with physical trials. But when I cook from paycheck to paycheck I find that I am often limited in this sphere.
God doesn’t bless us JUST so we can experience His blessings. He blesses us so that we can SHARE that blessing; to be the hands and feet and love of Jesus to both the church and to the unsaved.
So, even though we are struggling ourselves right now, I’m praying and looking to see how I can do some filling of my freezer, both for our own lean times as well as to be able to bless others out of our bounty.
So, for the next 6 Fridays I’ll be seeing what I can do to put at least 2 meals in our freezer. That will give me 12 meals at the ready. The weeks I can do more, I will. This particular week I won’t be adding any meals (since I’m at the end of the week with no opportunities). BUT this is the week when I’m asking if you’d like to join me in this project!
Can you, in each of the following 6 weeks, perhaps double 2 of your suppers and freeze half? I know that many of you are as strapped as I am, but I also know that it really doesn’t cost much to double a recipe. And just think of the blessing of being able to take a meal (with perhaps a sweet note) to someone in REAL need!! Or to be able to manage on those weeks when the grocery money just isn’t there.
I’m going to do this as a link-up for these few weeks, you’ll be able to link up the meals you are putting into your freezers to encourage all of us! I’m giving you a heads up so you can think and plan (because, anyone who has read my e-book knows you SAVE $$ WHEN YOU PLAN!) If you want to join me in this, comment below to let me know and use my button above on your blog posts when you prepare freezer meals. I’d love to spread the word to encourage others to prepare Faithful Freezers.
