How did that get in there?
We ALL have one, me included. I'm a Christian and I have a junk drawer. It drives me crazy, every so often when I open it up and swear that it was just cleaned the day before. Frustrated and irritated, I clean it once more. Like an ex-boyfriend, it somehow finds its way back into my life ;-)
We don't have to wait for Spring Cleaning to move some stuff around, discard and/or organize our lives. Have you forgotten what God can do for you? He has the power to change those areas of our lives that desperately need his touch. We are constantly in need of cleaning and straightening - gossip, yelling, gluttony, complaining, bitterness, fretting, jealousy, worry, pride, uncommitted struggles, impatience - all jammed way back in the corners of our junk drawer.
Unfortunately, they can't and won't straighten themselves out. That's where the Almighty God of the Universe comes in. Ahhh, deep breath - Lord, I need your help. He longs to help us in those areas where we just can't quite do it on our own.
Will you let Him help you today? After all, you don't want your stuff to start spilling over do you? (lol)
BTW - This was part of a devotional I read this morning.
