‘Just Do It’

“I have a habit of procrastination.”
They say (who ever they are)
that confession is good for the soul,
but I guess all of you didn’t really need to know that.
Anyway, I hope I can remember something of this reading
and ‘just do it’ instead waiting to get ‘a round to it.’

‘No unwelcome tasks become any the less unwelcome
by putting them off till to-morrow.
It is only when they are behind us and done,
that we begin to find that
there is a sweetness to be tasted afterwards,
and that the remembrance of unwelcome duties
unhesitatingly done is welcome and pleasant.
Accomplished, they are full of blessing,
and there is a smile on their faces as they leave us.
Undone, they stand threatening and disturbing our tranquility,
and hindering our communion with God.
If there be lying before you may bit of work from which you shrink,
go straight up to it, and do it at once.
The only way to get rid of it is to do it.
Alexander Maclaren

Sister Sandy Coleman once brought a lesson on undone chores
as a string of onions hanging around our neck.
How good it is to get rid of that string onion by onion.

She hath done what she could: Mark 14:8

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 1Corinthians 10:31
