PROCRASTINATION...is sooooooooooo LAST YEAR...

So you wouldn't believe how long I've wanted to blog...

 Thing is, I spent so much time in conversation with people (already) about life, and Christ and life in Christ. I wanted to expand the conversation, but I didn't. Instead, I spent too much time cowering in fear, drenched in self-doubt, guessing and second guessing myself. I figured I wanted to do everything perfectly...SOMEDAY, but you know how Someday is- it keeps eluding you. It seemed like I wore procrastination like a thick cloak in this tropical weather. Each day it weighed me down, slowing my steps and smothering my sense of purpose with its heaviness.

"So what changed?" you ask.

Well, quite simply, God sent me inspiration! Yup!Surely enough, and as sudden and dramatic as every major life metamorphosis I've ever had, inspiration was sent to me. A major breakthrough occurred after having read "Just do something: A Liberating Approach to finding God's Will" by Kevin De Young. In it, I basically realized that I had been psyching myself out by over-spiritualizing things on one level, and also trusting too much in my natural talents on another. It helped me to realize that all God wanted from me was for me to use whatever I had to do whatever I could to obey what He had already told me to do, which was to love Him first, and to share that love with other people.

"I had been psyching myself out..."

Once this hit me, it was like all the pressure lifted, and I was free. Free to just do what I could for God with the talents that I had. I felt free to be happy, and to do what I liked ! And so, this blog was born, with  purpose in it's little hand, and a fierce desire to live in it's breast.

And, just like that....PROCRASTINATION DIED.
