Break Ties with Procrastination

I used to be the world’s worst procrastinator. When I was faced with several tasks, I would do the easiest one first. Then when I got around to do more challenging tasks, I was less alert and not in the mood to tackle them. This pattern of behavior cost me untold amounts of wasted time and money.

Just as an example, each year we hire a company that installs our outdoor Christmas lights. They offer a discount if we pay early, before the peak-season of hanging lights begins. Despite this incentive, I sometimes set their invoice aside and the deadline for the discount comes and goes. My procrastination can cost me the savings we could have enjoyed.

I believe that whatever task the Lord gives us, He gives us the time to do it. Each morning, pray and ask Holy Spirit to order your day.  Focus on the priorities that He has assigned you for the day.  Submitting to His leading each day, you can break that tie with procrastination and enter into every blessing you were meant to receive!

Yours in Christ,
