Just Get It Over With!
I know the feeling, trust me I do. Right now, I am struggling to get up out of bed every morning, read my Bible, and go for my intended "daily" run. The bed is so nice and warm. "I'll just sleep a bit longer..." I need to tell my self "Just get it over with." The funny thing is, once I get going I love it. I'm glad I did it. It gets my day going right and puts me in the right mood.
I recently heard an illustration. A little boy wanted to cut his dog's tail off. It is a practice I don't understand, but I guess the kid saw a bob tailed dog somewhere and thought it looked neat. He wanted his dog's tail to be bobbed (docked) as well, but he didn't want to hurt it. So he decided instead of cutting the whole thing off, he would just cut an inch at a time.
You see how ridiculous it is. When we prolong doing what we know is best for us and/or our family, we do way more damage than if we go ahead and get it over with. I hope you are challenged, I certainly am, to wake up tomorrow morning with a "just get it over with" mindset.
