Our lives are busy, full of people, events and somedays!
WAIT… What? Somedays?
I know it sounds weird, but we go around life thinking…SOMEDAY we will do this and SOMEDAY we will do that… But I wonder, are we taking the steps towards that? Are we pursuing our dreams?
Life can get complicated and we get distracted. I don’t want to get to the end of my life and realize those somedays have not come.
We might think that we have years to accomplish our goals, but do we? The story of Josiah shows the importance of Starting Now.
“Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign; and he reigned thirty and one years in Jerusalem.” 2 Chronicles 34:1.
This one sentence may not seem important, but when we remember that kingship was for life, we add the time together and it shows Josiah died at the age of 39. Josiah was considered one of the greatest kings of Israel, he brought the city back to God.
Josiah could have easily waited to start his work… HE WAS EIGHT! But waiting was not part of Josiah’s plan. He had not reigned for long when he began to purge the city of its evil ways. If Josiah had waited until when people thought he was ready, his impact would not have been as great.
Look at today. Where do you want to be tomorrow? Next week? Next year? In five years? START NOW! It may be just a little step, but start now working towards your goals. Take action in your life which will help you achieve your dreams. Don’t wait for someday, because it may never come. Start now on your future.
