I feel pretty sure I am…a procrastinator! I have heard some describe being a procrastinator as a good thing and others as well, not good at all. We procrastinator’s say things like, “I work better under pressure…that’s why I wait to get started/finish a project” or “it’s at the last minute that I get my best revelation/action plan for getting something done.” Whatever the excuse we procrastinator’s know that we were called to be quick thinkers/late night work doers. What made me post about procrastinator’s? It’s simple, I have some books out that I need to be studying and lessons that need to be finished. Chanelle took the kiddo’s out for a bit so I could work with a little bit of quietness around the house. I shut the TV off and turned on some music (His Radio 91.9 in case you were wondering) and planned that 6-9 would be my study time. Chanelle and the kiddo’s have been gone for about 30mins and as of right now I should have started with my lesson 13 minutes ago and well, here I am writing a blog post about procrastination J
BTW – Getting started on that book work now…
By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time. He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward | Hebrews 11:24-26
Moses chose the hard life rather than the convienant due to the fact he was looking beyond where he was to where he was going. This reminds me, sins pleasure is for a short time and leaves one left out of an eternal reward. Choosing your way based on the sake of Christ keeps you looking ahead. So, keep looking ahead by faith not accepting that which is convienant but choose the greater reward.
Its a Summer Sunday Morning with alot of things that we could be doing today. We could head to the beach, catch up on some yard work, take the boat out, or even spend the morning getting ready for a family and friend cookout. Or, we could…Head to Church, connect with other believers, see lives changed, and learn how to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ as a corperate body. As much stuff that there is that I would love to do today, I know there is one thing, above others, that I need…Jesus. I wonder how many others are planning their day around Christ. Just a thought.
Feeling a bit overwhelmed…need a break of sort. To clear my mind, identify distractions, and get direction.
Really need to set up a schedule for reading, planning, devo’s.
My attitude has been off for the past few days. Short with co-workers, kiddo’s, and Chanelle. Everything gets on my nerves.
Need to put more work into our future goals, spend time dreaming and planning.
I don’t like my job, it is draining. Not hard work, and it is a great job. Time demands are low, and not really a stressful environment. The draining part isn’t the work or the place, it’s the fact its not my passion. Oh to be able to do what I love. That’s where the work needs to be put on the previous statement and the steps made, and connections strengthened to get to that place.
Pursue, Pursue, Pursue.
God’s presence is beyond extraordinary, and God has wired us for His purpose. There are passions within us that I believe are God given unctions that bring us joy when we have the opportunity to do them. I believe that God wants to ignite our passions with His Presence in order to do great things for Him. No matter what it is you love to do, God has placed that love within us and wants us to do those things in order to do His will. Think about it, what if we allowed our God ordained passions to be directed by His prescence. How many lives would be touched and changed. This is one area that I want God to have full control. I want His presence to collide with my passions in order to do extraordinary things for His Glory.
