It Starts With Me Not Waiting
For most, the thought of working hard is something we are committed to doing someday, but right now it’s not a priority. We think that when we get that dream job, that leadership position, that amount of money, then we will work hard, read the Bible more, and be generous. However, being the person God has called you to be in the future starts with you right now. Stop pressing the snooze button on your life; if you wait for tomorrow, tomorrow may never come. God wants to start working in and through your life starting now.
Rather than wait for tomorrow, we must allow God access to our lives today. There are things you can do starting today that the future version of yourself will thank you for.
• In your journal, write down what type of person/Christian/leader/husband/wife/employee that you want to be in the future. Now ask yourself, if you continue in the way you are going, will you eventually become that person?
• What needs to change and what daily disciplines do you need to introduce in order to become all that God has called you to be, and do all that God has called you to do?
Don’t use your age as an excuse to keep hitting the snooze button on your life. Train hard while you’re young so that when you’re older you can say with Paul, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7).
