Not too long ago I cleaned out the junk drawer in the kitchen in my house. In the drawer, I had receipts from 2010, vitamins and cough drops that expired in 2012, hot sauce packets and ketchup packets from restaurants that had evaporated, hundreds of pens and pencils, as well as batteries that didn’t work!
While cleaning out the junk drawer, I made a mess in the kitchen! Papers, and receipts, and phone chargers, and extension cords, and Chick-fil-A napkins, and Chick-fil-A sauce, and paperclips, and microwave popcorn packets were everywhere!
In that moment, I realized that, sometimes, you have to mess some stuff up while you’re in the process of cleaning some stuff up! Every now and then, God will allow things in your life to mess up before God comes along and cleans it up!
