Decisions, decisions, decisions! For anyone who knew me in college, I lived for “crunch time.” Pulling “all-nighter’s” for an exam, most especially “finals” but sometimes because I didn’t manage my time wisely and sometimes just being lazy. Although it’s been many years since my college days a few of these traits are still common in my life. I have been postponing a task that is important but because of fear, guilt, responsibility and even a bit of shame it hasn’t happened. Oh, I’ve got reason and excuses but the truth is I’m scared and fearful. So, this week is the week I face my fear and address my task. I’ve been talking about my choices and what needs to happen, it’s the actual act of doing it that has yet to materialize. I just had an image of myself flash before my eyes, I am much like a politician in that I say a lot of things but have done very little to make myself believable. I read something today that jolted my being into stop talking and start “doing.” I get emails from a site called, Brave Girl’s Club and this is what I read today, “We can decide what kind of life we want to have, and we are the ONLY ones who can decide. We can’t wait around for things to happen. We must take action to make them happen. No more excuses, baby. Let’s do this.” God speaks to us all in many different ways, I am thankful that God has not given up on me, as I am seeking to listen and follow Him, Amen! I am not going to lie, I do not feel brave or courageous, in fact I’m terrified but procrastination can only go for so long before something happens, good/bad or indifferent…either you make the decision and have ownership or the situation owns you. That is not what God wants, God is always with us and I am drawing my strength from Him and seeking to do His will.
