Motivation can be pretty difficult at times. I've always been a bit of a procrastinator. I get things done, eventually. Lately, I've been doing better but there are still certain things or seasons when I know that I can push something back and get away with it. The postman probably thinks no one lives at my apartment because it may take me a week or two to check my mail. Some weeks, I may wait until 10 at night to start writing for this devotional blog. Yes, I get it done and enjoy it but I'm unnecessarily making the sacrifice of a good night's sleep
Just because you can do something late notice does not mean you should. At times, that can get you into trouble: some new, unexpected task pops up as well and you are sent scrambling for time and resources. Even at times when I am not rushed into multiple projects, just having that peace of doing things ahead of schedule lends itself to a comfort of double checking my work.
We should be prepared. Not just in everyday tasks but in everything we do for the Lord.
1 Peter 3:15
But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect

This weeks memory verse is
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
