round-tuitI love a good play on words and this is one is one of my favorites. The picture to the left is a round tuit. We’ve often heard it said, “I’ll get around to it”.  Well now you have one or at least a picture of one.

So what are you going to do now?  Are you still going to say, “I’ll get around to it tomorrow” or “I’ll get around to it next week” or “I’ll get around to it when I can”?  Procrastination is our enemy, I’ll do it tomorrow, I’ll start it tomorrow or I’ll finish it tomorrow should no longer be in our vocabulary.

God hasn’t called me to do everything but he called me to do something.  And He’s called me to do something now, not later.  Windows of opportunity are opened and closed but I believe some windows of opportunity open and close but God may not lock the window. Just because something seems hard, doesn’t mean it is. It just may appear to be.  Just like something may seem out of your reach, doesn’t mean it is.  It just may appear to be.  Just like at night when you are driving and your eyes play tricks on you.  Making things seem one way but they are something completely different.  Just like fear.  It’s false evidence appearing real.  Doesn’t mean it is real, it just seems that way for a moment.

Sometimes you just have to try.   He’s called me to be a mother and a wife. He’s called me to be a servant-leader. But also He’s called me to be a doer of his word. He’s called me to lead the youth. He’s called me to be the best employee I can be. I leave what is behind and I press toward the mark of the high calling of Jesus Christ. Just like Paul as he said on his deathbed, he fought a good fight he’s run his race. I want to be able to see my Savior smile. I want to look back over my life on my deathbed and say that I have finished the race I have completed the task that God set before me.

What is it that God has called you to? What is the task that He wants you to complete. Are you on that path? Are you on that roadway? Are you gaining the skills that you need for that task to be completed? It could be going to medical school. It could be becoming an engineer. It could be owning the gas station on the corner. It could be working at the dry cleaner. But whatever it is ,do it as working unto the Lord. And you will hear Him on that great day saying, “Well done, my child. Welcome. Come on in.”

What is is that  you’ve been procrastinating about  doing?  What is it that you’ve put off for way too long?  It could have been posting in your blog. (wonder who that could be?)  It could be having that hard conversation that’s needed with a loved one.  It could be as simple as getting rid of unneeded items in your house.  I’m a firm believer that busy people get more done.  I don’t think it’s because they are better at anything than anyone else, I just believe that busy people don’t have “round tuits” in their house or in their vocabulary.
Be well my friends.

I’m not waiting for you!

People go to the Internet for one of two reasons:

1) To solve a problem.

Where do I find the cheapest tires for my car?
I wonder if the grocery store up the street is hiring?
How do I stop my dog from barking all night?

Or

2) To be entertained

I want to see the latest video by that new artist.
I missed the last episode of my favorite show.
I missed the paper today and need to read the local news.

Maybe you are like me.  It’s almost guaranteed that I don’t just find what I need and get off the Internet.  With all of the ads and links (bells and whistles), there is a tendency  to click here and there and stay longer than originally planned.  Well, while I’m clicking away so is the click of the clock.  Father Time has told me, “I’m not waiting for you!”

I think this is why some develop what has become known as a mid-life crisis.  And maybe that’s what I’m going through now with this new passion I have for writing the book and this blog  and even already starting the second book.  My co-worker will tell you that even things said throughout the day at work light up in my mind as a potential blog post titles (Hey YJ!).  And I think this blog post came to me because with the recent challenges and joys in my personal life, time has been ticking away and I hadn’t posted anything in a few weeks.  I miss connecting with you.

As we get older, I’m sure you can definitely attest to those moments in life where you’ve looked back and wished you could get the time back or wondered what you would do if you could do it all over again.

Well I’m here to tell you, it’s never too late.  As you know, this blog is all about finding your place of freedom in this world.  I believe that freedom comes with being in line with God’s word and the plan He has for your life.

As I handed the manuscript for the RELOVE book over to the editor a couple of weeks ago, I looked Father Time in the face and laughed.  I will not let another year go by without being published.  I will not let a week go by without exercising (at least once). I will not let a day go by without telling someone in my life that I love them (and that includes my Father in heaven).  I will not let a moment go by that I am anxious for anything or fearful of anything or anybody.

My prayer for you all is that you are able to look at Father Time in the face and laugh.  Let him know although his clock is running, you’re runny right along side.  Let him know as the old saying goes, “time waits for no one”, you can tell time that he’d better catch up with you!!!  And when our time is over, the Father of all time and space will say, “Well done”.

Be well my friends,

KayD G.
