We can often say that we really want to do or achieve something, or that we should face or deal with a particular issue. But unfortunately many times we can postpone or put off what we could do because we are content with making excuses as to why we don’t take action. Before we know it five, ten or fifty years has gone by yet what have we done or become in those years? Was whatever we were all busy doing worth postponing following our dreams, destiny for? It’s all too easy to sit back and look at others and say, “I could have done that, or been that, or gone there”….Well, why didn’t you?
Procrastinating and having the attitude of making excuses and “I’ll get round to it”, can cause us to miss the season and timing that God has for us and what He has planned for our lives. Often we just need to cease our postponing and making of excuses, draw a line in the sand of the years that have gone by already, breathe deeply and say, “That’s enough, I’m done procrastinating, God bring it on, I’m going to go out and live the life which you have given me!”
Today, stop what you are doing, assess where you are at, think about what you are so busy thinking and doing all the time that it is so important that it is hindering your growth and progress. Then pray and seek God for His plan, strategy and dream for your life and make a decision to stop making excuses as to why you can’t do or become all God has made you to be and just begin!
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”.(Ecclesiastes 3:1)
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”(Psalm 32:8)
Prayer: Lord please help me to quiet my heart and mind so that I can hear the dreams you have placed in my heart. I don’t want to live a life of procrastinating and making excuses so that I never actually live the life you have for me. Help me to seize the day today! In Jesus Name. Amen.
