Take a look at what 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 has to say on this subject. “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we are imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.”
My father is not the only person that has allowed disappointment and conflict to park him in his easy chair; there are so many procrastinating dreamers amongst us.
Greatness lives in each one of us and sometimes we have to fight along the way. The road will be bumpy at times but remember; only you can fulfill your purpose no matter how big or how small, the world misses out if you don’t move.
In the words of TD Jakes, “procrastination never gets it done, fixing to do, don’t get done.” Now that’s a word!
