The sluggard does not plow when winter sets in; therefore he begs in harvest and has nothing. (Proverbs 20:4 AMP)
Go for it NOW! I find myself often being lazy when it comes to confronting an issue, knowing when it’s time for something new, or adding to a vision that God has already given me. Sometimes we just don’t feel like it. Kelly Clarkson says there’s a dark side to all of us, but I’m convinced there’s a lazy side too. (LOL) While reading this scripture this morning, I’ve decided to be my own coach and cheerleader. I will not wait on anyone to push me but go forward with what I know it is time for. And i will be thorough, No half steppin’! Whether it be a book, asking someone for forgiveness, waiting because God said it, telling someone that they’re actions hurt me, saving more money, starting a new diet/ healthy eating habits, working out (and Lord Knows i hate it), a prayer journal, going back to school, presenting a new idea to my pastor for building the kingdom, or whatever it is that God has put in my heart for me to do. Sometimes procrastination is a sense of disobedience, especially if God has told me to “MOVE” on it. This scripture is basically saying, plow in the appropriate season so that I will reap my harvest at the “right” time. If I miss the appropriate season, then I just may miss harvest season; or when the window is open. This then will cause me to procrastinate more because in the right season I can get stuck noticing that something is missing and then not know how to move. Trying to figure out a void that I’ve created from me just being disobedient can be so frustrating. So, I’m going for it now! For once in my life, I’m going to be a little selfish. I’m going to believe in myself instead of constantly cheering someone else on. I’m not saying I’ll forget about those or won’t encourage them, but I’m going to use that same energy for myself. I’m ready to build the visions that God has given me and working the better me that God wants me to be. I’m ready to live the dream. I’m ready to reap my harvest. I’ve started so many things but some of them I haven’t followed through with. And this doesn’t mean that I won’t fail. But without some failures there could never be success because i will have always played it safe and wouldn’t know the difference. Im going for it! I’m plowing now, so can reap then! What are you lazy about? What’s holding you back? Release it! And plow now!
live out loud
