Day 11…Procrastination

As a leadership coach I know for a fact that I have talked about this subject to lots of people. This morning in my prayer time God nudged me. You want breakthrough…then stop procrastinating!! Ouch!!

Quite a challenge. Made me think. Have I become lazy in some things? Have I lost my focus? Am I still as determined as I was ‘back then’? Mmmm. Honestly!?

My passion is Xcel Darlington. It’s what gets me up in the morning. I think about it all the time. Pray about it constantly. But it’s not the only thing I do. I am reminded of a scripture when Paul writes a reminder to the Church in Corinth about giving but I’m sure the sentiment could be applied to anything ‘Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means’.

To see breakthrough…yes, I must keep praying, fasting, reading the Word and believing God for it but I must also work for it too. Laziness never got anyone anywhere. Not that I am saying I’m lazy but that maybe I haven’t given some stuff the attention it deserved!

How about you – do you agree?
Where are you procrastinating?
What are you going to do about it?

One thought on “Day 11…Procrastination

  1. Julian, you have made a valid point here about the impact of the pastor on whatever is happening in/with the local church.

    Having said that, though, and from a different perspective (not being a pastor of a congregation myself), I think to see a breakthrough is equally dependent on creating and releasing leaders who will take your vision and passion and, biblically speaking, “run with it”. I’ve learnt the hard way that one person can only do so much – this is why I’ve made a decision to spend progressively more of my time not only doing things, but also enabling others so that they co-do (is there such a word?) things with me.

    Delicate balance, I know, and all effort always starts with the pastor/main leader, but well worth your time and energy :).

    Every blessing!
