Toilet Paper

Psalm 68:19
"Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, the God who is our salvation. Selah."

We almost ran out of toilet paper the other day. This made for a necessary shopping trip; I was not about to be caught without toilet paper if I could help it. Not only can it help prevent disease, but it’s just a nicer experience overall to the alternative.

I am thankful God created toilet paper. It’s such a simple thing, and I think we often take it for granted, since it is so abundant. Yet, without toilet paper, I am really not sure what our modern world would look like. More and more I find God often uses the little things, the unnoticed things, the mundane things, to change the world.

Certainly, He uses the large things, too - like Christ paying our penalty and restoring our relationship with God. Yet God also daily holds our world and all its working parts together. He walks with us daily in an astounding and beautiful relationship full of grace. Only God is capable of all that, and only God is worthy of all our praise! May we recognize His blessings more and more!

What is a "mundane" blessing you see in your life?
