When my alarm went off this morning, i did not want to get out of bed, in fact i stayed in bed for another hour. When i did eventually get out of bed, i felt so tired because i slept late and kept waking up in the middle of the night but somehow i was excited. Excited that it was Monday. Crazy right? Who gets excited about Mondays-well at the moment i do! For me Mondays represent a new beginning, a new week, a new opportunity to do things all over again, a new chance to get things done. At the backdrop of this excitement i also realised we are just three days away from the end of July, shux another month gone and only five months left of 2014! In just five months the year 2014 will be over and roll out the new years resolutions and write down the same things we should have accomplished this year. This however did not freak me out in any way, i took it as another opportunity to get things done over the next five months cause let’s face it, five months IS a very long time. Perhaps you might be thinking what’s the point, the year is almost over anyway, i will start all over again next year, i will start all over again next month or next week but truth is there is no greater time than the present. You don’t want to keep putting things off saying tomorrow or when i have time, if you don’t have time then MAKE time to get things done. I will give a perfect example. I hate doing laundry, every fiber of my being absolutely hates doing laundry. I have been putting off for a number of days now. Last night i decided to try something new and write my to do list for today the night before. I usually do it in the mornings. Here i am sitting down blogging right now and i’ve told myself laundry is a right off today, i will see it tomorrow but what if tomorrow i don’t get the chance to do it then that’s going to impact on the rest of my week because what i should have done today i will do it tomorrow and keep pushing things forward instead of actually making progress. Procrastination is the number one killer of getting things done. Why don’t you purpose in your heart every Monday morning to make it the best week of your life. You will be surprised at how much you actually get done. Someone might be thinking but i have been trying for the past seven months, nothing has worked for me, i’m just tired now. Guess what? Get up and try again but this time don’t do it on your own, ask God to help you because His mercies are new every morning and He gives strength to the weary.
Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
31 But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
