Out of Sight Out of Mind

bowl of candyThere has been a bowl full of miniature chocolate covered candies sitting on our kitchen counter for over a week. Mind you, I could have put them out of sight; but, I didn’t. I think you know where this is going.
I would see this bowl of delectable delights every time I entered the kitchen. My eye saw them and sent that information to my brain. Yet each time I saw them, I didn’t filter it through the truth – eating sweats doesn’t solve anything! Now, put a “bad” day in there and this becomes a dangerous situation.
Here is a truth all believers must drill into their heads: You don’t just fall. You’ve been thinking about it for a while.
I had seen those delicious treats without telling my brain they were not a solution to a bad day. Furthermore, knowing that candy is a drug of mine, I could have asked my wife to re-hide them. (Oh, did I forget to tell you that I “found” them? Oops, my bad.) Suffice it to say, a bad day came, which we all have, and I ate more than one, well, two, oh let’s get serious, it was eight miniatures later before it sunk in what I was doing.
This all took place because I forgot this truth; and therefore, I didn’t pick up my FREEdom tools. Failure came as I didn’t get that candy out of sight so it couldn’t enter my mind. What drug is under your control that needs to be remove from your sights?
Now that I’ve reminded myself of this truth, once I post this I’m going to ask my wife to re-hide those drugs!
