    Default Procrastination

    This has been a major struggle and stumbling block in my walk with Christ for years. Probably THE thing that I struggle with the most. Some people may not view it this way but Procrastination IS a sin.

    I waited till the absolute last minute (today) to work on an observation paper for graduate class due today. I almost did not get it completed because all the printers were down in the library on campus, but God sent someone to me who had access to another computer lab. I thank God for His grace... but I keep abusing it. I told myself the last time that I would stop this foolishness but I keep ending up in the same predicament. I often make the excuse that I work good under pressure, but that is out of order. It gets to the point where I cannot seem to accomplish anything unless I have great pressure put on me. I'll know I need to do something but I'll allow anything and everything to distract me from it.

    This struggle transcends school, that was just an example. Procrastination permeates at work, church, in my spiritual life, my ministry, etc. This is the biggest hindrance to growth in all areas of my life.

    Fam, I usually don't solicite prayers, in fact this is probably the first time in years that I have ever asked like this. But I really would appreciate it if you do keep this in prayer. I know that the fervent and effectual prayers of the righteous availeth much. Please pray that I break this stronghold fam, pray for greater discipline in my walk.



    Thank you,


    In the blessed, glorious, beautiful name of our Risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ

    I'll eventually get around to praying for you.








    Okay, you're supposed to laugh here. Especially since I'm also a procrastinator, so I'm struggling too. What do you think has me up at 12:13 am ?

    Seriously, I'm praying for you on it now.

    Done.

    I' ll keep you in prayer, cause I struggle with it too.
