Laziness brings on deep sleep, and the shiftless go hungry.
Father I pray to remain active, focused, determined, and constantly moving in the direction that you are guiding me. Let me sleep long enough to be reenergized but not too long that I become lethargic. The hours I waste sleeping or being unproductive are the hours that are taken from me when I need to earn a living to eat, clothe myself and keep a roof over my head.
Father I don’t ever want to fail you or my loved ones. So please keep Your hand on me Lord that even if I stray from Your path, I never go too far that I can’t be redirected to the right way. Father I want to be present and proactive in my life every single day. I don’t want distractions from people, media, and other outside forces to keep me from living my life to its fullest as Your ambassador.
If I am not living right Father, please lovingly correct my steps. In Your name I pray. Amen.
The lazy go broke, get fat, grow old too fast, constantly battle illness, and enter a deep sleep that they may never wake from in this level of existence. God does not condone laziness. He can’t make sense of a person that is slow to change, slow to work, slow to move, slow to act, slow to do much of anything but lay around looking at the sky, the ground, the TV, the computer, their twiddling thumbs, or other folks doing what their supposed to be doing- and what the lazy person should be doing.
If your house that God has loaned you is a pigsty and messy, then do something about it- clean it and thank God for the shelter and safe place to rest your head and raise your family.
If your car is cluttered with a bunch of junk- instead of adding more junk and asking passengers to “excuse the mess”- clean it inside and out and show God you are grateful for the gift.
If you’re overweight, like a great deal of people in our nation- stop making excuses as you chow down on that fast food, and high caloric meal- get up, get your body moving, reduce your food and caloric intake, and increase your water and fresh produce. Show God that you are grateful for you life, your moving limbs, your beating heart, and well-functioning organs. Show God that you respect your temple- His temple.
If your business is going no where fast get from behind the computer and in front of the TV, stop leaving the house everyday driving around doing and meeting no one, and start meeting people who can mentor, guide, and help build your company where it needs to be; remember that your company’s brand first starts with you and the efforts you put into promoting it.
If your relationship with your significant other is getting dull, predictable, and boring- remember that it took both of you to get it to that point. If you want spice, spontaneity, an injection of life and passion- then you need to take the first step and stop waiting for the other person to do it.
If the two of you are mad at each other, then you need to be the humble Christian you claim to be and sincerely apologize, and work proactively to make the wrong things right in your relationship.
If you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, then get up and change something…anything…but stop sitting around, laying around, shuffling around with your head hanging down and doing absolutely nothing.
Lazy people are taking up prime real estate…either you build upon it and make the best out of every situation or be prepared to be moved out of here sooner than you initially expected.
I love you all and remember we’re all works in progress; we all have to work at our faults, weaknesses, and the temptation to be lazy. We’re God’s clay that He is molding every millisecond of the day!
