I'll Be Ready When the Crazy Kicks In.

  Okay, so Francesca Battistelli's new CD is... *AMAZING*. Honestly, I can't get enough of it.  
One of my favorite songs from it is When the Crazy Kicks In. Here's the chorus: 

Oh, come meet me in this moment
Before it all gets going
These plates start to spin
When the crazy kicks in
A circus of distractions
It's just about to happen
I'll be ready when
When the crazy kicks in

 The verses are talking about how having time with God first thing is how you make it through the day. That really struck me. I'm fairly good at taking time to read my Bible and spend time with God, but it never happens first thing. Chores come first, and by the time I get to it, I've already had plenty of opportunities (and taken them) to be grumpy and unchristian like. 

  Here's the problem, I'm not willing to force myself to get up even earlier and spend time with God before I start my day. I keep saying, come August, when I'm moved out... I'll start my day right *then*, but am I not selling myself short by putting something so important, off? I think I am. I need to push myself to change that. I need to always strive to grow and be better. I'm lazy and unmotivated. Things I know I can and need to change. It's making myself to do it... that's the trouble. 

  Any of y'all feel convicted to make a change, but you're struggling to actually do it? 


  1. Procrastination seems like such a good idea, but the work pays off in the long's a toss up. I'm in a similar position, but I say the effort is worth it :)

  2. "Any of y'all feel convicted to make a change, but you're struggling to actually do it?"

    All the time.


Jesus loves you & I do too!
Be blessed, but also be a blessing.
