Procrastination {Day 3}

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

I don't want to talk about this.

In fact, I think that sitting here and typing out this blog post is a form of procrastination on its own merits.

But here's the truth: When I feel overwhelmed by a task that's before me, I put it off. I let procrastination steal my motivation. I give it full permission to be a dream thief. Why in the world do I do that?

Procrastination is simply a bi-product of fear. 

Instead of taking one bite of the proverbial elephant at a time, I stare at that big ole behemoth and freeze-- while I peruse Facebook and Instagram, grab another cup of coffee, clean the bathroom…and repeat.


Today I need to do some serious work on pulling together my thoughts {and a mountain of paperwork} for starting our 501c3 to raise awareness, education and funding for efforts against human sex trafficking here in rural Indiana. It feels too big. I feel too small.

My logic tells me that I just need to take it one step at a time. One email. One printout. One thought jotted down. One prayer. Each one moving the process forward. Each step breathing a whisper of love to those who need someone to take that step for them.

I CAN do this-- but not alone.

Will you pray with me? It's going to take work and determination. Will you ask me about it? Will you hold me accountable to what God has planted deep in my soul?

So here goes nothing...

I'm taking a bite!
