false bottom drawer

we have a desk that has a false bottom drawer. was my desk when i was a kid...i always thought it was so cool.  a great hiding place for little snacks (no, i don't have any food issues at all...)

now i don't hide snacks...honestly...well...not there, anyway...but it is a good place for little things like the extra set of keys, our social security cards, etc.  it's a little can search and search and even completely empty the desk...but if you don't know that the false bottom drawer is there (or if you conveniently forget...) then you have no clue where the spare keys are...hmmm...

so...does your heart have a false bottom drawer?

maybe you've given your heart to God.  emptied all your receipts of rights and wrongs, all your bills of needs and requested provisions, all your address book of friends and family...all of who you are.

but there's still that false bottom drawer.  and a little something might be hiding in the very back... maybe unforgiveness toward a loved one...or a grudge against a church or denomination for how you were treated...even something as innocent as a bad habit. see...God's Son Jesus is a carpenter...
He built your heart.  He knows about that false bottom you might as well give Him that last little thing you're holding back...

Psalm 139:23-24
"Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.  See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting."


  1. Test me...long sigh...still more junk to work on...

  2. I think have several of those false drawers; thanks for the reminder to turn it all over to Jesus :)


  3. What a load of crap who wrote this. Here I was looking for a tutorial to build a false drawer to hide important documents, etc since therte has been a high rate of robberies in my neighborhood recently. And instead I get a lecture on God n Christ. Really? If your gonna post something like a tutorial or how to build something leave your religious views where it belongs in church.


i really appreciate comment away...
