A little sleep a little slumber..

I haven’t blogged in a while. Simply put, I’ve been procrastinating, lazy and just plain out inconsistent.

Yep that’s right. I became the lazy christian, the kind my pinky promise sister Christina described in her blog (http://www.christinafasoro.co.uk/2015/05/the-lazy-christian_14.html?m=1).

Still praying, going to church, reading my bible etc but not truly exercising the power that was given to me through Jesus Christ.

Then am I a hypocrite? Because I sure speak about having a form of godliness all the time.

Ok, forgive me. I may not be bitter, envious and have malice in my heart but the way I procrastinate is no joke! I am always leaving things to the last minute and the repercussions are severe.

Not only do I procrastinate but I am very inconsistent and I have seen how it negatively affects my daily life.

Growing up, one of my favourite scriptures was proverbs 6:10-11, “A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest and poverty will come on you like a thief
and scarcity like an armed man”.

I said it all the time because it scared me. I didn’t want to be poor. Lol but that did not stop me from procrastinating.

Now I have seen the effects it has had on my life. Poverty has truly hit me. Not really in my finances. I mean, I do have a good career but in terms of my spiritual goals, my relationships, my health, and to be honest, my finances could be better but I have been sleeping and folding my hands.

In a conversation with my best friend this morning, I decided to make a change. I will be intentional and disciplined because I do not want to lack. Nor do I want to think about what could have been, if I only applied myself.

Procrastination is truly of the devil. I’m still shocked to see how I have been robbed! Lol and that is what he comes to do; steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). But he won’t get away with it! I want it all back!

And how could I forget this verse from Ecclesiastes 9:10, “Whatsoever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, where you go”.

My excuse is always, “yea I do work and I am soooo tired”. But so is everyone else! And I know that I have not found things to do because my hands are folded. Laziness!

At the end of the day, when God placed Adam in Eden, he didn’t tell him to sit down, gaze and meander. He placed him there to cultivate the land, he put him to work (Gen 2:15).

Stop letting the enemy rob you. Instead exercise what God has given to you. Yes his strength is made perfect in weakness and we are more than conquerors in Jesus name! Don’t miss out on your inheritance. Ain’t nobody got time to be a lazy christian.
