To all you procrastinators out there…stop what you are doing and read this…
Alright procrastinators…you know who you are…
You most likely have a handle on what needs to be done.
You know this because you have at least one, if not five To Do lists going…
You aren’t bored because you have more things to accomplish today than are humanly possible…
You aren’t short of ideas, just short on time.
And you really really really don’t want to feel defeated yet again at the end of this day; however, odds are you will be because….it’s already so late you may as well just scrap the whole thing and start over fresh tomorrow.
Well let me tell you a little insight I have gained in my own struggle with procrastination.
My problem is not procrastination….my problem is fear.
Procrastination is just the symptom.
And what am I afraid of?
Because…if I actually finish all the knowns on my To Do lists…I have to face the unknown.
Did you just hear my heartbeat accelerate as I typed “unknown”?
So procrastinators, try this …. look at all those overwhelming lists you have made…go ahead…I will wait…
Now…look past all those and into the unknown future…take a deep breath and join me as we declare…
THIS is the day that the LORD has made…I WILL rejoice and be glad in it…. (Psalm 118:24)
I WILL work all these things as unto the LORD, with all my heart….(Colossians 3:23)
I WILL NOT be afraid of the unknown that follows because I have not been given a spirit of FEAR…but of power and of love and of a SOUND MIND…..(2 Timothy 1:7)
NOW….let’s get out there and do this thing!!!!
