Motivation. We all are looking for it.
Praying, when we sit down to do our work the Lord will come down and fill us with a zeal for what we are doing.
Sometimes, it happens.
The room temperature is perfect.
The coffee is soothing the soul.
The hum of rain sets the perfect background noise.
However, for me anyway, this is pretty rare.
The motivation to sit down and get done what I need to is more than hard.
It feels like a battle. A constant battle between fidgeting my legs, doing something more fun, eating more food, checking my phone, calling someone, legit anything.
A lot of times when this is the case, I procrastinate by looking up ways to not procrastinate!
All of my procrastination searches, lead to absolutely one thing.
More procrastination, and absolutely nothing else.
Which is kind of unfortunate.
However, if I can sum up my findings it is this.
“Act, and God will act”
-St.Joan of Arc
All to often, we allow the difficulty of starting a task prevent us from having an opportunity for God to work in our lives.
God comes to us in times of need and gives us all that we need.
How do we expect Him to give us a zeal to do our work well, when we do not even begin?
Therefore, we have one obligation.
The duty to start.
Then it is not our problem anymore.
God will take care of it.
This “giving of the task” to God is like a ball rolling down a hill.
All we have to do is give the ball (the task) a slight push and God will take it where it needs to go.
God works in our lives like the hill.
Once we let go, and give the slightest push, our task will reach its completion.
Therefore, stop procrastinating by finding ways to stop procrastinating.
ACT. And I promise you, God will act. Trust in His power.
