Dealing With Procrastination
© 2014

by

Stephen A. Peterson


A sluggard’s (procrastinator’s) appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.

Proverbs 13:4 (NIV)

For those of you who are not aware of the word “procrastination”, it is the unenviable skill of putting off what should be accomplished now until tomorrow. The person who procrastinates, conscientiously or unconscientiously, assumes he or she has a tomorrow with which to work with. Said persons seems to refuse to face up to making difficult decisions or to apply themselves to difficult tasks. The inevitable truth is that what was not done today will to be dealt with tomorrow. Therefore, it actually has no future for individuals who consistently procrastinate.

Today is an excellent opportunity, tomorrow perhaps, the next day diming hope and the day beyond that an iron clad impossibility.

Each day that is delayed quickly becomes yesterdays of lost opportunities—examples of fear and questions of “What ifs”. With little question, every one of us has put off doing what we needed to do now out laziness or fear of an undesired outcome. Rather than succumb to laziness or fear, why not seek God’s assistance then forward. Something great will result! After all, when God is on our side, what or who can stand against us?


Prayer: Almighty Father, I, at times, have procrastinated with regards to my duties in life. I am sorry for my sins and ask forgiveness for them. You are faithful, merciful, loving and just. Help me to rely on You when moments of laziness and thoughts of entitlement enter my mind and heart. I am weak and cannot overcome these sins without You. Be with me in my hour of need! These things I pray. Amen.
