We all have been guilty of procrastinating (delaying or postponing something). I learned the more I delayed something, the harder it became for me to do it.
Sometimes when I delayed getting something at a store that I wanted and returned, it was gone. So sometimes, we miss out on the good things because we put them off.
2 Corinthians 6:2 says, “now is the time, now is the day of salvation. Proverbs 27:1 says 27 Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.
My mom would always say, ” the early bird gets the worm, and “good things come to those who wait, but don’t wait too long.”
Even while waiting, we could take the necessary steps to move forward. I have learned there is always something I can do until God gives me the next thing to do.
Waiting for the right time or when it is comfortable can make it even harder. Life can throw us curve balls. But, I learned sometimes I had to keep going even when it hurt, if I was tired, or even when I was afraid.
The time is now. There is an open gate; why procrastinate?
Prayer: Lord, thank you for the open doors you already have set for me. You know the end and the beginning. Lord, I repent for putting things off what I can be doing now. Faithful waiting is with expectancy and preparing for what lies ahead, Now is the time. Now is the day of salvation. In Jesus’ name! Amen.
