This, my Dear Friends, is the TIP of the iceberg. This iceberg could sink an entire fleet of Titanic's! It has been a LONG day--and I am sharing my bed with my favorite Little Man tonight.
Imagine my dismay when I discover there is already a "Junk Drawer" at the new house--while there is still one to be unloaded at the old house. DO NOT act like you have no clue what I am talking about! We ALL have our junk drawer! Somewhere in the kitchen or close to the door you normally enter --there is a drawer--a catch all drawer.
It contains a hodge podge of the valuable, useless, might need it someday, and do not have a clue what this is. My junk drawer ALWAYS has keys in it---keys which I have no clue what they open, but I might need it someday to open that lock which must be hidden in some obscure spot that I overlook ALL the time. I would go take a inventory and give you the list, but that would mean cleaning it out. NO THANK YOU, done enough of that for one day!
Periodically I clean my junk drawer out. A lot of it gets thrown away---it all gets neatened up and those mysterious keys always go back in it. If I did not go through the drawer, it would soon be so stuffed it would be impossible to tell what was in it. I can only deal with so much junk in my life--or it will end up taking over my life.
What junk am I carrying around with no possible good purpose? Grudges, envy, anger, and even hatred begin to accumulate and obscure the blessings when I refuse to throw it away. What incident am I storing in my hard drive--cluttering up the memory and slowing down the processes? What useless keys to long ago slammed doors do I refuse to throw away? What junk am I storing in my trunk to the point it becomes such a burden I cannot lift it? Time to clean it all out--and start afresh---a new day will dawn tomorrow. Lighten the load, ditch the junk and add new spring to your step.
Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective
prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
