Someday is Today…
Someday is Today…
… because “someday” is not a day of the week. Why do we procrastinate? Why do we hesitate when God calls us? Why are we afraid of change? True, it is awkward and uncomfortable to be out of our normal routine, living space, daily comforts or privileges. We fear failure, embarrassment, mediocrity or even danger.
Have you ever said to yourself, “I’ll do that someday”…
But WHEN, my friends, is “someday”?! It is not on any calendar I’ve ever seen, yet I am one of the world’s best (worst?) procrastinators. The column for “someday” is always full, and I look forward to it, mostly.
So then what will it take to face the risk of erasing the header for “someday” and move those tasks/activities to a real day? I love my planner. I decorate it with stickers, Bible verses, pencil-in appointments and work schedules alongside fun activities and weekly to-dos. It is pretty, organized, neat and helpful.
But what about when God says “Go”, or “Stay” ? What happens when life’s “somedays” suddenly arrive today? Remember Jonah, who avoided God’s plan. He ran from his “today”, when God called, in hopes that it would become a “someday”! We all know how that plan ended…a lesson learned the hard way to say the least.
“THIS is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
- Take the opportunity to try something new.
- When the call is a clear, don’t hesitate in trusting Gods plan.
- Use your talents, don’t listen to Satan’s discouraging words.
- Erase the “somedays” from your calendar…the blessings don’t live there either!
Proverbs 27:1 Matthew 6:34 James 4:14
