“Someday, I will go on a cruise/travel, go to school, get out of school; learn to paint/cook/skate/write/ride a bike. Someday, I will learn to read my Bible for understanding. Someday, I will get a different job. Someday, I will quit this job that is killing me and start my own business.”
What is your “someday” excuse? Each of us has one (two or more) or had one or more before we made the decision to go for it or as Nike says: Just Do It!
It has taken me a long time to ‘decide’ to go ahead and do the things I have held myself back from doing. I took swim lessons in 2014 after years of saying “I will learn to swim someday.” I also said I wanted to travel. I found a company that allows me to travel with great prices and destinations. The personal development allowed me to leave a job I was unfulfilled in for several years. A year ago, 2014, I left that and haven’t missed it.
What encourages me to keep going after what I want is the growth and freedom I feel due to making the decision to go for it. It’s a beautiful feeling to live what God promised in the verse: “A thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.” John 10:10
Please don’t read into this and think that all is roses and skipping through the sun-filled fields. There are thorns and dung in the fields, but keep your goals in mind and remember yet another promise from God: “Haven’t I commanded you: be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
Your someday may just be today…
