“I been aimin to get around to that.”
In some, actually many cases, the house, farm and even family was in total disarray and the person responsible for fixing intended to “get around to it.” Trouble is “fixing day” never came.
Noted author and motivation speaker Andy Andrews, said:
“Intention without action is an insult to those who expect the best from you.”
A preacher from the South, while speaking to a group of “aiming to” men, nearly screamed as he exhorted, “For God’s sake quit aiming and pull the trigger!” Good advice!
No matter our station in life, there are others who in some way are depending on us for action.
Think about it. Millions of families are depending on ole dad to quit aiming to get off drugs and accept responsibility for the welfare of the wife and children. Quit aiming and get to doing! More millions of Christians honestly say, “I know I should--------- and I been aiming to do it.” Quit aiming and start!
The “been aiming” to do whatever list is very long, and totally unproductive.
Why not begin saying, “I have been aiming to----- and today I am taking the first step toward starting and finishing.”
The Apostle Paul dealt with this “aiming to” problem when he wrote his letter to the people in the church at Galatia with this gem:
Galatians 5:7, “You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth?”
The brilliant truth in Paul’s question is the simple truth, no one but you can keep you from obeying the truth. Nor can anyone but you keep you from beginning to bring to completion the project that you’ve “been aiming to do.”
Today’s question: Whatcha aimin to do?
