Encouraging others in Christ

A procrastinator, A Rip, and a REALIZATION…

Do you know that procrastination should go hand in hand with a thankful heart? I never thought about such a question, until this morning as I began to iron a pair of slacks for my son’s event. I kept remembering every day this past week that ‘the pants are needed on Saturday,’ which is NOW TODAY...IMG_7836
As I completed the last pressing along the pocket area, I was thinking “Not too bad, I got this!” I took a deep sigh of relief, thinking how I could NOW get on with my day…


IT WAS THEN, IN THAT MOMENT THAT I realized all too precisely why I had been given a weeks notice about the slacks… ALONG the pocket area was an inch and a half RIP …. Oh dear!!! needless to say, I wasn’t expecting this! Seems that I recalled something about a pair of slacks with a rip, but who’d think that it was THIS PAIR, I had like five more pairs to choose from, but he needed this pair!!

As I got my sewing machine out, wound a black thread bobbin, and threaded up the machine, I began to sew frantically hoping that it would work correctly. Once I saw that it turned out perfectly, It was then that I realized just how thankful I was that God is always there to calm and help me. I’m not the best seamstress, IMG_7837.jpgand someone with my limited ability needs all of the help that they can get…May sound silly, but I know that God watched over me, not only to get it done but done correctly!

1 CHRONICLES 29:11-12
11 Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all.
12 Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.

David acknowledged God’s greatness. Our constantly changing world is controlled by a constant and unchanging God. During our lifetime, we see objects fade, materials decay, and friends change, but we can depend on God’s control. His love and purpose for us never change.
Only when we understand this can we have real peace and security.

FRUITFUL OBSERVATION: No matter if we see the GREATNESS of God through the parting of the Red Sea or repairing a torn pocket, God knows all things and is in control. I learned my lesson about procrastination as well as a reminder that God is always with us through the big and the smallIMG_7835.jpg

Let’s do our best in acknowledging the GREATNESS of God today and every day!

  2. Funny story, and so very familiar. I have been there, if only I had done it when… I do see God in the mundane too and grateful for being able to recognize his Sovereignty over all things, even to teach us lessons.

    So true! I’ve been procrastinating about that paper I have to write to graduate but I finally have got going on it but it is only because I prayed for God’s help and motivation ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been relying on him to get me through which is what God definitely wants!

  6. Funny thing! I was just taking to my pastor Tuesday evening at a Transformation and Healing class about my issues with procrastination. I finished 3 things that day with MINUTES to spare! She told me to turn the stress and frustration with my procrastination into thankfulness that God gave me the time to get it DONE! Last Friday I had a Jewelry Show at my house and pulled up 15 minutes before start time with the snacks. I was frantically trying to cut the lemon for the water, slice the cheese, arrange the cupcakes, and everything else. I kept praying, “5 more minutes Lord. Please give me 5 more minutes before anyone arrives!” I don’t know exactly how much time passed but by the time the first guest arrived I was pretty much done! Glory to God!
