Father forgive me, for I have procrastinated.
In my thoughts and in my actions.
You have blessed me with countless talents. The talent of a great mind, the ability to think logically, to put words to paper, to make ideas reality, and I have wasted them many times over.
I have doubted myself, I have questioned my resilience, my strength, my tenacity.
You have assured me repeatedly that I have what it takes, yet I choose to idle and procrastinate.
Father, forgive me because I have not accepted the reality that I can change this world, I can create a lasting legacy that will impact lives for neons long after I am gone. My mind has been distracted from my goals and focused on thoughts that are not sustainable or rewarding.
I will be great, I will make a name for myself, I will use my talents to change lives, inspire masses and influence tribes of followers, but if I do not quit procrastinating my earthly existence will be one of regret, failure and pity.
Father, help me understand what is at stake. Guide my thoughts and oversee my actions. You gave me the gift of free will and only I can truly decide if I really want all that I dream of. Today I am saying that I do!
We all have the same 24 hours in a day yet we wonder why other people do so much while we do so little. I need to stop procrastinating, I need to take the bull by the horns.
I will no longer waste my talents and use my time idly. It will be a struggle, but one that I am ready to tackle.
Time is a precious resource that cannot be regained, and the last thing I want to do is look back in time on my dying bed saying “If only I had…”
