Evading what can be done today will not help you escape the responsibilities of what’s in store for tomorrow.
Procrastination: The act or habit if putting things off or delaying them; especially something requiring immediate attention.
If you just happen to procrastinate most of the time, something all of us will do at some point, I want to ask a few questions. Do you ever get tired of hanging on to that thing you’re going to do? And when one delay leads to another, how do you react when the results are always the same? ( An uncompleted task.)
Did you know it doesn’t matter how many degrees a person has; if he or she cannot complete a task this means their level of education is incomplete. And, did you know putting things off with the Am-A-Gonna’s has a tendency to bring some of our troubled past into the future?
When it comes to things we don’t want to do, the mind can be a very convincing liar, filled with lame excuses; especially the ones we say we are going to do tomorrow. And, as we all should know, after trial and error, worrying about what we haven’t done yet, can be pretty exhausting.
I know to some this may sound crazy but, doing nothing can result in us becoming fatigued. It’s hard running, sneaking around, and hiding in the cracks from situations like some of us run from any type of responsibly. And to make matters worst, when procrastinating, lies naturally surface, perhaps it’s because we try to give the appearance of being flawless.
I learned from past experiences that Procrastinating about what we should do today will ultimately define who we are tomorrow. I have also found the longer we wait the worst the problem gets and the more unlikely we will be able to resolve it.
FYI: You may delay today, but time won’t, it just keeps on ticking, and most of you who are familiar with norvielcherry.com, already know how I feel about wasting time. So let’s add Procrastination to the list because, It’s the greatest thief of time and the number one assassin of all opportunities.
For those who really don’t know, laziness in the Bible is called being a Sluggard: A person who is habitually inactive or lazy… Also in the Bible Proverbs 20:4 tells us: The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.
We all want something for nothing, sometimes; but there are those who want it all, all the time, and with no intent of putting forth an effort to get that thing at any time. Don’t let that be you or yours.
Proverbs 6:6 tells us to Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways and be wise:
“It’s Something to Think About.”
Dear Lord, please give us the strength to do all things, for “I can do all things because of Him who strengthen me.” In Jesus name, we pray.
