I cleaned out my kitchen drawer this morning. You know the kitchen drawer I’m referring to, don’t you? That drawer. I watched my husband struggle to open the jammed full drawer in order to retrieve a plastic bag for his sandwich and that was the last straw. Well, I guess it wasn’t the last straw. I ended up finding one of those in that drawer too. 🙂
I decided it was time to dive in and clean out that drawer. Here’s a picture of a few things found.
The weirdest thing discovered would be the broken dishwasher spring. It fell off our ancient dishwasher door a few weeks ago and found its way into that drawer after sitting on our kitchen counter top for a few days.
The sweetest thing I found would be the small notebook with the words “Smile- Jesus Loves You” printed on the cover.
As I cleaned out my messy drawer I thought about how nice it is that God never sets us aside in the kitchen hodge podge drawer. He never hastily hides us out-of-the-way. He never looks at us and struggles with finding the proper place for us. We are fearfully and wonderfully made by a Creator who cares so much about us. Ephesians 2:10 reminds us that He’s had a plan for our lives from the very beginning. “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” So thankful that God knows the perfect spot for each of us. Our job is to trust Him.
Oh, and if any of you are in need of twist ties, matches, band-aids, or rubber bands, let me know. I have plenty of extras.
