Yesterday I found myself with a clogged toilet. Scott was busy working on a project, trying to put the play set outside back together after it was damaged in a summer storm (I know...it's fall...it happened in the summer...sometimes one just has to be patient).
Anyway...back to my toilet.
I tried several times to unclog it.
Decided to just walk away for a while...you know...to see if it would magically unclog itself.
So I tried again.
Wanna take a guess?
Yeah...still no luck.
So there I stood in the bathroom with a plunger in my hand and I found these words (or pretty close to these words) going through my head:
"Lord. My toilet is clogged. And it's clogged pretty darn good. I need your help. Some might think this is a silly thing to be praying to You about, but I'm really working at coming to You with all things...good and bad, mundane and over-whemlimg. I need to do this with the inefficient plunger I have because the hardware store is closed and I can't run out for a new one. Lord...please help me unclog this toilet...because I know You can."
I took a deep breath and headed back to the task at hand.
And...wouldn't you know it?
Two plunges and that clog was gone!
I couldn't help but giggle out loud...and of course I immediately thanked my heavenly plumber for His help!
Take everything to God...
...and even your toilets will unclog :)
Wishing you a peaceFULLYsimple day.
