Every Sunday faithfully I take a nap after church. But I also made a decision that if I want something different I am going to have to do something different. I can’t want to change and yet stay the same. I can’t complain that I don’t have time for this or that and wish I had more time if I am not using the time I have wisely.
Saying you want to do something and verbally committing to it is one thing. Taking action is a whole nother thing. It’s the equivalent of putting your money where your mouth is. I can justify anything I want to do, but when I get down to it and tell myself the truth. I realize the justification had taken on the form of excuses. I just have to call it what it is. One thing that I am really good at is telling myself the truth. I can not allow myself to knowingly go along with the shenanigans that I conjure up just for the sake of comfort and excuses.
I can be comfortable or I can achieve my goals. I realize I can’t do both. Now is there time for rest and comfort? Indeed! It’s all a matter of how you balance it out. But if you are going to be dishonest with yourself you are never going to get anything done. And you will wake up and another week has passed you by and you are no closer to the things you want to to do.
Oh, by the way, I am straight talking to myself, but you can listen:)
So here are three things I am going to tell myself:
- Who do you think you are fooling, get on with your business and stop making excuses.
- Stop wasting time because you can not get it back.
- You want something different you have to do something different.
I vow to stop wasting time and take action doing the things I have been called to do.
Oh, you can take the vow if you need to also:)
To whom much is given, much will be required~ Luke 12:48
