~Day 9~Overcoming Laziness
I used to be a lot more diligent about getting things done but for the past two years or so, I have been guilty of being lazy. I find myself not wanting to do what needs to be done and thinking that I could just do it later but then would be overwhelmed by the amount I would have to do when I actually would finally get around to doing it. I think it all started when I wasn’t feeling well due to my gall bladder and then after surgery to remove it, I had a hard time recovering and went through a little bit of depression because I wasn’t able to do what I needed to do. I have been trying to get back on track recently by setting reminders in my phone with alarms telling me what to do each day.
The Martha Challenge for the day was to pray for God to give me a spirit of diligence every time I felt like saying “I will do that later” instead of just doing what needs to get done and then doing it with an obedient heart.
The Mary Challenge was to sweep, vacuum and mop the kitchen floor and then brighten up the kitchen with fresh flowers. I did it all but get the flowers.
