And Away Goes Trouble Down the Drain

"Once upon a morning dreary,
As I loitered weak and weary,
Suddenly there came a dripping,
Dripping on my kitchen floor . . ."

One day I was leisurely stretched out on the island in my kitchen, minding my own business, eating bon-bons and watching soap operas, when I heard the dreaded drip and realized the kitchen sink was backed up. And being a high school graduate, I deduced immediately that the problem was a CLOG. So I did my little clogdance to the phone and called the trusty Roto-Rooter-type guy, the one with the professional leather tool belt, the really smart one who suggests setting the washing machine into rinse/spin, "just to see what happens."

Needless to say, as the spin cycle kicked in, I heard a horrendous, yes, even a demonic, sound coming from the deepest parts of the earth, and then, a geyser shot up out of the kitchen sink. Everything in my worst nightmares was raining down all over the cabinets and floor -- the kind of stuff that is a truly effective appetite suppressant for days, because, well, you know why. (I know this is gross, but think of it as a CSI program.) And as it should be, the clog was removed, and once again, the water flows freely.

By the same token, you know how some days, you're just sitting around, minding your own business, eating bon-bons, and you become aware that there is a mighty unappetizing thought dripping into your mind? Oh, come on, you know you do. At least I like to think that other people do, so I can feel "normal." Well, it has become apparent to me that when this happens, it usually indicates that there's something in there clogging up my thinking, which in turn clogs my relationship with God. And since God has made it abundantly clear that He knows our thoughts (how embarrassing), I have reached the conclusion that the ultimate plumber is God, and His tool is His Word. As long as I take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ {2 Corinthians 10:5}, and meditate on God's Word night and day {Psalm 1:2}, He will "plunge" out all corrosive thoughts. How comforting to know that I don't have to live with a continually clogged mind. I can always call on my God, the smooth-running "fountain of living water." {Jeremiah 2:13}.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
