For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT)

What are you waiting for?  Think about that for a moment.  What is the thing that you know you should be doing, but you create a million excuses to justify why you haven’t started?  Some of you may be thinking of going back to school to finish a degree.  For someone else it could be thoughts of restoring a broken family relationship.  Maybe you are thinking about accepting Christ, getting baptized, giving, or volunteering at your local church.

What is the thing that often stops us from taking action?  Fear!  We sometimes fear what other people will think or say about us.  We may fear starting something and failing at the task.  We may even fear rejection when dealing with others.  Whatever the case may be, it’s time for you to GO!  It’s time for you to take action, conquer your fear, and do the things that you should have started a long time ago.  Start today!  There are no more excuses.  Stop waiting for the perfect conditions before you start your goal.  Don’t let 2017 arrive without taking action.  Ready, set, GO!

What specific thing have you delayed from starting in your life?
What can you do today to take one small step toward that goal?

Bonus:  Tell your spouse or a close friend about your goal so they can hold you accountable to reaching that goal.
