Awaken Your Calling: How Faith Can Obliterate Procrastination and Propel You Into Your God-Given Purpose

  1. Get Real with Yourself and God
    Are you just feeling lazy, or is there some underlying fear holding you back? Pray and ask God to reveal the root of your procrastination. Seek His strength to overcome these barriers. Philippians 4:13 (NIV) reminds us, “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
  2. Make a Deal with Yourself
    Promise yourself a reward for completing each task. Maybe it’s a delicious slice of pie or a night out with friends. Whatever it is, make sure it’s something you’ll actually look forward to. And remember to thank God for every small victory along the way.
  3. Turn it into a Game
    Make a competition with yourself to see how quickly you can complete each task. The faster you finish, the more time you’ll have for fun and relaxation. Colossians 3:23 (NIV) says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.”
  4. Get a Friend Involved
    Enlist a friend or family member to be your accountability partner. They can help keep you on track, and you can motivate each other to keep going. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (NIV) tells us, “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.”
  5. Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously
    At the end of the day, it’s just a task. Yes, it’s important and needs to be done, but there’s no need to stress yourself out over it. So take a deep breath, put on your favorite worship playlist, and get to work! Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV) encourages us, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
