Just One Package of Tape, Lord!
many people, I clip items from magazines or print things of interest from the
Internet. Recently, I decided to go through this basket full of such items and
thought I would put them in a 3-ring binder.
Some of the items were too small
to 3-hole punch, so I needed to tape them on paper in order to get them in the
binder. I had plenty of paper but soon ran out of scotch tape. I decided I would
run to the local Dollar Tree, where I generally can buy a package of scotch tape
with 8 rolls for only $1.
After driving the distance, I
combed through all the shelves in the office/school supply area, but I couldn't
find even one roll of tape. I prayed to God, "Please, Lord, I would like to
finish clearing away these notes today. Please let me find just one package of
scotch tape. I will be ever so grateful."
So, I went back through all the
shelves and bins again. Finally, I found only one package of scotch tape. Now,
of course, I was thinking of my 8-roll package. What I found was a 2-roll
dispenser package. The moral of the story be specific when asking God for
I was so very grateful; however,
though I ran out quite quickly again. I began going through everything at home
and found several tape dispensers around the house I didn't know I had. I
finished the project with a little tape left over. God is great!
