Luke 9:62 (MSG) Jesus said, “No procrastination. No backward looks. You can’t put God’s kingdom off till tomorrow. Seize the day.”
Do you struggle with procrastination? I read the story of a postal worker in Berlin who could sympathize with you. Apparently he was found with ninety boxes of undelivered mail in his basement. The poor guy said there was just too much mail. He planned to eventually deliver it all-with the help of friends-but he was completely overwhelmed. How about you are overwhelmed?
Can you connect with this guy? Everyone has nagging unfinished business in their lives-some more than others. I know I do! It’s a good time to start getting real honest about the current state of our lives, and become better at who we are in living our lives!
What is it that you’re putting off? Weight loss? A pesky unfinished project around the house? Educational pursuit? A demanding assignment at work? Maybe you’re avoiding a trip to the doctor or a tough conversation with someone. How about that career move? Or even your relationsip with the Lord?
Sometimes it feels like you’re falling behind in every area of your life and letting everyone down, doesn’t it? It doesn’t have to be this way great people. Take one step-make one decision and act on it-to finish that piece of unfinished business. If for some reason you just can’t do it, seek help from a pastor, a friend, or a counselor. Have a wonderful day and know you are loved!
For His Glory,
Pastor James Baker Jr.
