The other week, our house welcomed a new Keurig machine. We have a Keurig machine. I never use it. Not because I don’t like it–quite the opposite. I love it. When I remember it’s there.
The problem is that I store it in the cupboard, away from view. Months go by and I forget that I have the ability to make a perfect cup of coffee in 2 minutes flat. What a tragic shame.
Unfortunately, my selective memory is not just regulated to kitchen appliances.
Similar brain fog occurs when I tuck away my Bible in my nightstand, or continually show up late for worship, or stop logging my calories.
If something remains out of sight, then, as the saying goes, it’s out of mind. I get lazy with my faith, my focus and I put on a few pounds.
I’m guessing you’re no different, and that’s no way to live our lives.
I have to keep putting important things in front of me so that I remember they are there and can continue to bring value into my life.
And yes, that includes machines that make me coffee, which is why my shiny new Keurig now sits on my counter along with a beautiful display of pods to choose from. And I’m enjoying coffee every day now.
What do you need to take back out and dust off this week? Comment below and let me know.
Wow this hit deep! My first thought was HOW do you forget COFFEE, the nectar of life!?! Then my brain immediately went to “The bible is the TRUE nectar of life! How can I forget that!?!” But I do all the time. Thanks for the reminder that I need my bible and connection to Christ more than I need my cup of coffee!
