Walking into a Dark room

The other night I forgot something after youth group was over and it was in the big , dark, room up at our church. I knew walking into this room that is was dark and that it was also filled with many a chair, but that didn't stop me from barging on in looking for what I had left behind. About way halfway into the mangled mess of chairs I realized that I should probably go back and turn the lights on or I might be there for another few hours searching and wounding myself.
What struck me about this quick little scene played out in my life is that I didn't just turn the lights on in the first place. I don't know about everybody else but I so often know what I should do but often don't choose accordingly. I know I shouldn't eat after a 6p for good health but I do it anyway, I know I should excercise also for good health reasons but I don't, I know shouldn't stay up so stinking late when I have to get up early with kiddos but I do anyways, and so on and so forth, etc. etc. ......
Why don't I do what I know I should before I stumble and get hurt? Am I alone in this plight of stupidity or are there others of you out there who do the same thing and if so please share so that I don't feel alone. Oh yeah, and I am not calling you stupid if you do share this trait that would only be me :)

No you are not alone at all. I will take this a step further and say that I regularly pray for God to open my eyes to times when I am being this way. THEN, when he does, I tune him out. SIGH. I am such a loser.

For me, I'm known for hurriedly trying to walk through a door before fulling turning the knob and therefore smashing my face.

Ohhhhhh the humanity . . .

How about forgetting to unlock the door before you pull on it? That's more like me... I don't even actually get into the room. Crazy, isn't it?
