It is has been several months since I wrote a post to my site. I apologize for not adding to my posts.  The delay was not caused because  I was no longer receiving subjects from the still, quiet voice because I was.  I realized recently it was simply a matter of procrastination.  I actually got distracted and off-track by life. It really amounts to procrastination.

What is Procrastination?

The Oxford Dictionary defines Procrastination as the act of delaying or postponing something.


I have had bouts with procrastination many times in my life.  Most of the time, I am not aware of it until it is brought to my attention by the Holy Spirit. In this case, during my daily Scripture reading, I came upon Ecclesiastes 11:4, “He who observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.”  The meaning I received from this Scripture was not to wait until all conditions are favorable to do what I am suppose or want to do. Procrastination is soooo self-defeating.  It stops or delays you from taking action and accomplishing goals.

Missed Opportunities

How many opportunities has God made available that I missed because of fear or hesitation?– (Procrastination)  All conditions will never be favorable nor will all the ducks just line up in a row, but I must continue to advance and do what the Spirit has put on my heart to accomplish.  I know that God does not give us an assignment without giving us everything we need to accomplish the task.  Self-talk is a weapon I use to defeat procrastination and get myself going into the right direction toward my goal.  So I had to have a long talk with myself about my writing.  Eliminating my excuses for not posting one by one, helped me to get started.

That being said my posts will appear weekly, and I pray that they will be helpful to anyone who takes the time to read them.  My purpose is to relate my struggles and successes on the path to become more as God would have me be. For I know that I am being Shaped and Molded each and every day.  Although I have come a long way, there is such a long way to go.  I hope that relating my struggles will make it easier for others and help them not go around the mountain as many times as I have to find the Truth that has been there all the time.

Finding the Path

Matthews 7:13-14 says, Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat; Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way; which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”  Only by staying on the narrow path will we find the peace in our Spirit and the treasures that has been laid up for us as Believers.

What are you procrastinating about?

    I need to look at my own blogs and pray about what I really want to do with them and how the Lord can help me accomplish whatever it is.

    Thank you for commenting. I believe that the Lord has a plan for all of us and every thing we need to know is revealed by the Holy Spirit at just the right time. I am attempting during the restart of my blog to listen intently and write only what is pleasing to God. Have a Blessed Day! Amina
