When you make a vow to God, don’t delay fulfilling it,
because He does not delight in fools. Fulfill what you vow.
Ecclesiastes 5:4 HCSB
When turbulent times arrive, it’s easy (and tempting) to avoid those hard-to-do tasks that you would prefer to avoid altogether. But the habit of procrastination takes a double toll: First, important work goes unfinished, and second, valuable energy is wasted in the process of putting off the things that remain undone.
If you find yourself bound by the chains of procrastination, ask yourself what you’re waiting for—or more accurately what you’re afraid of—and why. As you examine the emotional roadblocks that have, heretofore, blocked your path, you may discover that you’re waiting for the “perfect” moment, that instant in time when you feel neither afraid nor anxious. But in truth, perfect moments like these are few and far between.
So stop waiting for the perfect moment and focus, instead, on finding the right moment to do what needs to be done. Then, trust God and get busy. When you do, you’ll discover that you and the Father, working together, can accomplish great things . . . and that you can accomplish them sooner rather than later.
Once you acquire the habit of doing what needs to be done when it needs to be done, you will avoid untold trouble, worry, and stress. So learn to defeat procrastination by paying less attention to your fears and more attention to your responsibilities. God has created a world that punishes procrastinators and rewards men and women who “do it now.” In other words, life doesn’t procrastinate. Neither should you.
Not now becomes never. - Martin Luther
Do noble things, do not dream them all day long. - Charles Kingsley
Do the unpleasant work first and enjoy the rest of the day. - Marie T. Freeman
Dear Lord, when I am confronted with things that need to be done, give me the courage and the wisdom to do them now, not later. Amen
