Getting It Together
Every morning that I wake up, I take advantage of the fact that I have been given another chance. God didn’t give me breath just because. He gave me breath because He has a purpose for me. He knows the dreams that I have, the plans that I have. Most importantly, He knows the plans he has for me (Jeremiah 29:11).
Often I take advantage of that fact, that my purpose has not yet been fulfilled. I wake up giving thanks for another day, another breath, yet I go about my day not taking the initiative to move forward with purpose. I continue on in a mundane manner, constantly saying “tomorrow I will…” Tomorrow is not promised to me. So I need to put aside those things that aren’t on the high list of priorities and get moving with those things that are.
I can sit up here and offer many excuses. School. Fatigue. Illness. Stress. All things that have plagued me recently. But the real reason is simply: LAZINESS. That and the fact that there’s always tomorrow. Not!
I don’t want to find a green tent parading above my six foot deep resting place along with my dreams. I don’t want God to give His plans for me to someone else because I was too lazy to fulfill them. I can’t continueputting it off.
This past weekend, while fighting a cold, I began putting thoughts into action. Instead of spending Wednesday night through most of Saturday in idle mode and waiting until Saturday night and Sunday to get my homework done, I went above and beyond by not only getting my work done early, I went ahead so that this weekend I won’t have much, if any, homework to do. This will give me the chance to get some articles written, work more on my memoir, get to chapter two of my second novel.
I want to get my priorities in order.
I want to control my life and not let it control me.
I refuse to let the sun set on me before my plans are fulfilled.
Blessings & Prosperity!
