This Sunday, during the “Wreck it Ralph” episode of “at the movies” we talked a lot about changing your life. We talked about the many difficulties that come with ANY major change we attempt, from unsupportive friends, to the labels we put on ourselves, to the natural pull of our sinful natures to want to do the wrong thing instead of the right. (Yes, you probably were “born that way”.) However, in spite of all the difficulties, in spite of all the potential pain, people STILL make the decision to change their lives. Big Changes…Little changes…it’s inspiring and exciting…just watch out for the Snooze button.
Yes. There is a snooze button in life change. It’s just as real as the virtual snooze button I hit on my iPhone this morning instead of getting up the 30-brutal-minutes-earlier that I planned. (Yep…even alarm clock apps have that evil feature) We’ve all seen people push the “snooze button” on life change…we’ve probably even done it ourselves. “I’ll start my diet after the holidays.” “I’m gonna hit the gym after school starts”. “I’ll definitely start getting out of debt after I get a better job”. And, perhaps the saddest of all, “I definitely plan on becoming a Christ follower…I just have some things I need to work on first. ” Snooze. Snooze. Snooze. Snooze.
If you keep hitting the snooze button, you will definitely miss that early appointment. Keep pushing the procrastination snooze button long enough…and you will never experience life change. Do it now! Today. No more “snoozing”. It’s the only way it actually happens!
(Got to run, but for some reason I’m 18 minutes behind schedule)
