One day I’ll start it.
One day I’ll go back to school.
One day, I’m gonna start working out.
One day, I’ll make more time to be at home.
One day, I’ll stop smoking.
One day, I’ll try writing that book.
One day, I’ll finally be able to enjoy life.
The destination of one day is one that never seems to be reachable. One day is a time in the future that never seems to come to the present, even after multiple days and years of good intentions and great ideas.
We so often use that as an excuse to not get things done. It’s almost like if we can just add a “one day” to whatever we believe we should be doing or what we think are others’ expectations of us, then it’s suddenly okay not to take steps to get there… to make no progress on the plan. In fact, it’s really no plan at all, it’s more of an empty profession.
But then there’s another side to “one day.”
The people that use the other side of one day are the ones that are driven to progress, not excuses. These are the ones that change their industry, their neighborhoods, their families, their destinies, and their fortunes.
One day, they’ll accept Christ.
One day, we’ll pay off that debt.
One day, they’ll come to church with me.
One day, we’re gonna see triple figures.
One day, we’re gonna run out of that tunnel on a football scholarship.
One day, my kids will go to college unlike me.
One day, we’ll be able to take that vacation, but we’ll save now.
It can be a dream catalyst or a dream choker.
Which is it for me? For you?
