What have I walked into?

You know immediately that something is not as it should be.  It’s that moment when everything inside of you as well as your skin, your hair all of your senses are fully aware that something has happened.  Then that question begins to arise within you, “What have I walked into?”
One day after long hours spent at a conference I had this type of moment. Opening the door to our home, then in Southern California, I sensed that there was in deed something just not right.
 The clues were right in front of me.
An aroma of unpleasantness
The dogs were covered in speckles of white
The kitchen timer was ringing
An unbelievable mess all over the kitchen cabinets, walls and ceilings.
Let me backup and explain what happened. During lunch my husband came home and decided to boil some eggs. He placed 10 eggs into the water and began to boil them. Setting the timer so that they would be just right, he walked away intending to return when it had been completed. Unfortunately for us, he left and went back to work.
Four hours later when I walked into the house, the eggs had boiled until the water had evaporated and then  they began to explode all over the kitchen! I truly wish that I could have seen the expressions on our dogs faces when this happened! On the stove was the remnant of what had begun as a helpful task, a pot that had been singed with brown burning eggs and shells inside.  The odor was horrible.

Messes happen! Our lives our not going to be neat and tidy all of the time. Sometimes, it may take a long time to clean up the mess, even when we did not create it! When we find ourselves in a situation and don’t know what to do we can always look to God the Father for direction. Yes it took me hours to clean up the mess.  I am not sure if I ever really did get all of the egg off the cabinets!
Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.         Jeremiah 33:3
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5
