Happy Birthday, Fellow Reforming Procrastinators! This is the one year anniversary of the website and blog. “The Lord has done great things for us and we are glad!” Psalm 126:3. Thank you, Lord! I’m really grateful for His redeeming work.
Time to celebrate!
Romans 8:29: “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.” God created us intending to change us and He is at work doing that. We can rejoice in the steps of progress we’ve made this year as we change to be more Christlike. I don’t lead a changed life; but my life is changING. I am grateful and delighted. You are part of the reason for my progress. Thank you!
The blog is up because those of us who struggle with procrastination need encouragement. As I learn, I share. You share with me and I learn more. Interaction with those of you I’ve met has been terrific. The body of Christ is a wonderful thing! Thank you for your chats, comments, and emails!
Here are a few of the great things I’m glad God has been doing in and for me this year:
- You ladies who have come into my life through this ministry
- The sense of camaraderie and accountability with you
- Starting the blog
- Having speaking opportunities to share in person and interact with my sisters
- The writing and presenting processes which help solidify my learning and spur me to more
- Dressing earlier – not caught in my pj’s when it’s time to go!
- Learning to more accurately project the time needed for a job
- Leaving home more often (not always) with margin
- Enjoying the prelude at church or chatting at a meeting because I’m early
- Recognizing priorities better so I’m doing first things first
- Serving dinner and going to bed earlier.
- Enjoying more rest and play with a clear conscience
- Enjoying “light shoulders.” As I do what needs doing when it needs doing, I have a new sense of freedom. Jobs don’t pile up and press me down. Increasingly, I’m walking free!
Celebrate YOUR progress! How are YOU changing? Small steps count!
