The BIG Dream… part 2

It’s pathetic that it’s been three months since I’ve written on this…

All summer I said to myself, and to my faithful and frustrated friends,

“When I have time to work on it, then I will….”

 

For the past year I would say that I have been stuck in the “when….. then…..” trap

When my debt gets paid off, then…..

When I work less hours, then….

When I make more per hour, then….

When I believe in me, then….

When more people who don’t know me start believing in me, then…..

When the people who know me an believe in me get so frustrated with me about being all talk and no action that they don’t want to talk to me about it, then…..

When I feel the conviction of the Spirit again, then

When the Spirit stops convicting me and I freak out about my delayed obedience, then

 

When When When When When, THEN….

 

My “then” is now…. And you no what?

None of the “whens” that have trapped me have happened… And I see now that if and when they did… they would quickly be replaced by some other “when, then” that I would hide behind in fear.

 

Talk to me, I know you’re reading. And I know I’m not the only one who was trapped by her “When, thens”

What are your goals?

What do you know or think that God asking you to do?

What are your “When, thens” that have trapped you?

Are you ready to choose faith over fear?

One thought on “The BIG Dream… part 2

    First of all, we must be kindred spirits because have the SAME blog template!! Secondly, I have used the WHEN statement for years in regard to buckling down to a regular, very serious prayer time and after finally putting an end to the procrastination and just doing it – trading the “when” for “I Will” – man, I was putting off the most powerful way to stop putting things off! Important things, like the movement of God, the softening of hard hearts and the effectiveness of ministry!
