"Spiderman, Spiderman, Does whatever spider can..." Now that the song is stuck in your head you are probably wondering what Spiderman has to do with the prom closet.
We all know that spiderwebs help spiders catch their dinner. But can they capture other things?
Yes, they can!
Last Wednesday we got the honor of serving 20 special needs girls!! Talk about awesomeness!!
I almost got run over by one girl trying to find her way to the mirror! She just could't wait to see herself in that perfect dress. When she looked into the mirror it was like magic. She stood there forever just looking at herself. I couldn't help but wonder what she was thinking...
As if she heard me she turned around and smiled from ear to ear. At that point I knew the answer. She didn't have to say anything, I just knew!
God had touched that little girl's heart and He allowed me to experience it, too.
Trust me when I tell you there was a little chaos that day. Can you imagine 20 girls trying on dresses?! We had another girl who starting dancing as soon as she came out of the dressing room. She didn't care who was watching - she was happy and she was letting us all know! What a joyful time we had!
After everyone had found their dresses and left, I noticed a spiderweb on the bottom of Tammy’s black pants. Tammy said “Oh no! It’s OK I will clean it up once I get in the car. I have a lint roller there."
It wasn’t long after we had all left the Prom Closet that I got a call from Tammy. She had forgotten to clean the spiderweb off her pants! So, what does God do? He uses it! God is limitless and all powerful nothing is out of His reach:
Tammy was in one of her appointments. You all know Tammy: “she was in a corner quietly getting things ready to do her job” when one of the ladies in the office noticed the spiderweb.
Tammy, without knowing what God was getting ready to do, tells the lady why she had a spiderweb on her black pants. “I was just at the prom closet serving" and she tells her about the Prom Closet and what we do.
The people in the office were touched and remembered several Bibles they had that they could give her. When they opened a drawer, they found even more Bibles that they gave her for the Prom Closet.
Did you know spiderwebs are also a source of energy for the spider? Some spiders eat it so they can gain their strength back after making that beautiful web. Just like the spiderweb is a source of energy, the word of God is our source of energy we consume every day.
And this particular spiderweb captures Bibles! As Tammy left with an armload of Bibles that will soon be handed to families at to the prom closet, she was reminded of a verse:
"Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? Job 11:7
