I was working offsite and began to help seal a bunch of envelopes. I’m thankful for the variety of self-seal envelopes now available, but I quickly realized these would be a bit challenging. A narrow flap needed to be lifted up then the top flap could be pressed over it to seal the envelope. Only the narrow flap was often stuck to the envelope. I struggled with a few then decided to find a tool that would help the process.
A letter opener. It had a pointed edge that easily slid under a corner and lifted the flap. I used a letter opener to close envelopes.
The irony was not lost on me.
Sometimes we use tools in creative ways. Why get stuck within our expectations?
God provides in many creative ways. He uses situations and people in ways I would never dream up, and I would miss the moments if I wasn’t attentive to him.
Pay attention today. The solution might be simpler and more accessible than you think.
