Here are some of my favorite passages from messages I have received from Christians:
The God of Toilet Paper
For me God is real and practical. There are so many times I have heard God speaking (not outloud-in my thoughts) that I know that he is real. My relationship with God is not my parent’s faith it is mine. For example…years ago…my oldest was a toddler I believe. I had just finished grocery shopping and I had brought in all the groceries from the bed of the truck except the toilet paper. I stood in my kitchen and I heard God speaking clearly to go and get the toilet paper out. I responded by thinking I will get it later. Again the same message “go get the toilet paper out of the bed of the truck”. Again I responded “later”. This happened a couple of times…finally God stopped telling me and I went about my business. Less than an hour later it started pouring. I was standing in the same spot in my kitchen-realizing that I would be throwing away all that toilet paper away. My first response to God was-why didn’t you say it was going to rain. I remember clearly that God said I told you to get the toilet paper out of the bed out of the truck. Funny stupid story. But I will never forget. Never. God cares about me even down to the practical stuff of life. God isn’t this distant celestial being that only cares about the big picture. He caress about me and the small meaningless details of my life.
“Pascal’s Wager“: The Argument That Refuses to Die
