God of the Bathroom Floor

God isn’t just the God of

Steeples Prayer meetings Well-paying jobs Mission trips Intact families Worship songs Sunday school

All those visible spaces.

The ones we show to the world. The ones that look like we have our act together. The ones where we will be praised.

He’s bigger than that. Much much bigger.

His heart is bigger. His presence is bigger. His well-worn, tenderness is bigger.


He’s also and especially the God of

Oncology visits Broken hearts Empty checking accounts Funeral parlors Rehab rooms Sleepless and fitful nights Bathroom floors Messy selves and messy lives

The places where it’s just us and Him.

The ones only He can really see.

Hear. Understand. Guide. Comfort. Heal.

The places of

Loss Despair Loneliness Doubt Fear

That are also the places of

Growth Hope Belonging Grace Peace

The places that nothing and no one else can touch.

Except for this big big, “very present help in time of trouble,” tender-hearted God.

Those are the most sacred places of all.

And some of the most beautiful.
