The people of Israel ask the question, “Is God with us, or not?” This is an understandable question when people are struggling in a wilderness of uncertainty. God answers their question through the guiding cloud, the crossing of the Reed/Red Sea, and by providing manna and water for the journey. How does God continue to say, “Yes, I am with you”?
This week, Take a large-mouth jar and layer the following ingredients to look like the layers of a desert: ½ cup of powdered milk, 1/3 cup cocoa powder, 1/3 cup of granulated sugar, dash of salt, 1/3 cup of brown sugar, and some minimarshmallows. During the week, tape drawings to the jar to make it look like a desert landscape. At the end of the week, put the mixture in a saucepan; add 2 cups of warm water and dissolve, add 3 cups of milk, heat and serve. Consider where you might display this reminder: “Yes, God is with you!”
