By all accounts, February is finally here! For some reason, it seems as if January took forever, but I don't think that's a bad thing after all. I mean, yesterday was the first time I've ever lived to January the 92nd. Seriously, January took forever...
When did we spend our time waiting for time to pass? I think we're in bad shape when we can remember how long a month was and not how much we've done in said month. I have a quick question for you, what did you do in January? Seriously, did you do anything in January besides count the days?
That used to be me until I had a serious wake up call. It was brought to my attention that I was actually wasting time...days of my life were wasting away while I was watching the calendar.
January was a month of time...time to get things right!
That's a sobering thought. But I need you to hear me, the month of January was a month of grace. Time to get things right, time to make things right, time to make final decisions...time to begin, time to end. Your year will flow out of how you handled January! If you left business undone last month, don't let it hang over you the rest of the year. If you heard God but allowed indecision to rob you of obedience, don't ruin your future by continuing to disobey God the rest of this year! For some of you reading this, you'll know what that means.
Do you have a goal you want to accomplish this year? If you didn't start in January, don't think that the rest of the year will drag on like January. Whatever you left undone in January deserves your attention this month and going forward. I'll start with myself, I went to the gym only once this month. The workout was exhilarating, I just never made it back. That changes this month! Life has a way of hindering our progress and challenging even the best of our intentions, don't let February suffer the same fate as January!
The government shutdown spilled over into the new year, and once the shutdown ended there was still time in January!!! Did your shutdown end in January? Even if it did, shake it off and get into the game! February is here, January is (finally) gone and we are moving ahead! Got it? We won't sit on the sidelines watching the calendar flip, we're going to get up, get busy and get to it!
Yep, I Said It!
When I have something to say, I often say it. Many times, I try to find the best way to say it. Other times, there's just no easy way to say a hard thing. My journey in life has made me a person with much to say and the person people least want to hear it from.
