Isn't that what happens to us in life? We read the Word, or hear Godly wisdom from friends and family, but we forget them because of our busy lives. Everything that's whirling in our minds start to clutter our thoughts, and we forget the Word that motivated and encouraged us earlier. We might even set the bible aside because we're too busy to read it, but we piled our clutter on that too.
When I cleaned up my board, I also found a picture of an iceberg. I put that picture up the day I put that board up as a reminder of how my relational time SHOULD be spent. The visible peak represents the time I spend with friends, ministry, and the mission field, but the larger, deeper portion of the iceberg represents my time spent with God. I am guilty of flipping that iceberg upside down. No wonder I felt like I was drowning...Now that my board is uncluttered, time to start unclutter my life. Time to flip that iceberg upright again.
