Do the thing right now that you’ll wish you had done at the end of the day.
We often reach the end of our day with a sense of frustration at the uncompleted goals we had set out to accomplish. We determined that morning what was really important, but as the day progressed, we let other things slip in and sidetrack us from the main thing we set out to achieve. We retire at night with a sense of defeat at that lingering unfinished project which continues to shadow us and rob us of any real fulfillment or achievement.
The way to break that cycle is by doing the right thing right now. Go ahead and do the thing you know you’ll wish you had done at the end of the day. Make a deliberate choice, an act of your will, that says, “I will do the thing that needs to be done and I will do it right now”
Satan’s way is to look for a more convenient time but God’s way is to redeem the time.
