Monday Memories: Procrastinators Club

From 2 Corinthians 9:6:  “The point is this:  the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.”

Hey you, yes you!

Sitting there alone

Life without a view


Lack of efficient action

Reaping fear and doubt

Living without traction


Being a loyal member

Procrastinators Club

Ever since November


Life’s emotional quicksand

Robbing your life rewards

Time to join a new band


Do you really desire?

To find true happiness

Without life’s misfires


Seeking God’s advice

He’ll always support you

His Grace pays the price


Spending little attention

With overwhelming fears

Can’t relax without tension


Take courage, now believe

Jesus conquers the world

Time for your life to achieve


Released from gloom

Fleeing this quagmire

Life ready to bloom


King’s Solomon’s words implant

Whoever watches the wind

Will never attempt to plant


Time to change is now

Adopt new life patterns

Sowing with a new plow


Here’s some simple advice

Now follow this amazing tip

Better than throwing dice


Do first things—first!

Better sooner, than later

Darkest clouds now burst


Each challenge, take it on

Looking fear in the face

Reaping rewards, feeling strong


Handling life, forever free

Tearing up my membership

Procrastinator, no longer me

From American writer and lecturer, Dale Carnegie:  “Action breeds confidence and courage.  If you want to conquer fear, do not sit at home and think about it.  Go out and get busy.”

  1. I wish I could honestly say, “ Procrastinator, no longer me!” Alas, I’m not ready to don the active member of the “Better Now than Later Club.” I’ll come back later and reconsider… 🤣😛
