A quote I found on a post-a-note on my desk. I do not remember who said it - or where I read it. But in light of my last post and last scripture committed to memory... it fits.
"A lot of us put off till tomorrow what we ought to be doing today.
And we keep doing that until years turn into decades.
Then... a lot does not turn out like we planned."
Scripture reminds us that our God has plans for us....
Jeremiah 29:11 ESV"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD,plans for welfare and not for evil,to give you a future and a hope."
So, what does God have planned for me...for you? What does He desire that I (we) be busy doing?
A couple of things that I know from Scripture:
(1) He wants us to trust Him to guide.
Psalm 37:4-6 ESV
4. Delight yourself in the LORD,and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5. Commit your way to the LORD;trust in him, and he will act.6. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,and your justice as the noonday.
(2) Whatever we do - it is to bring Glory to our Lord:
1 Corinthians 10:31 ESV
So, whether you eat or drink,or whatever you do,do all to the glory of God.
Thoughts? What are we putting off? What does He want to do in/through our lives? What is keeping us from doing so? Am I settling for good...when He is pushing me for BEST?
What thoughts are going through your head/heart right now?
