Of course, the key here is not waiting, but who you are waiting on. I like to procrastinate until I really know what God wants me to do. Sometimes it takes longer than I figured, but when I wait, I am never disappointed.

My wife was happy when she heard that I did it and said, “Now, don't you
feel good?” 

I had to smile at her, but I really did not feel good. I really did not
feel anything. 

Several weeks later, I got a letter in the mail from the company where I
sent my “sample.” I was not sure what they were writing to me about. At 
first, I thought maybe something went wrong and I was in a lot of 
trouble. 

Slowly, I opened the envelope and found inside a letter thanking me and
it included a $50 gift card. I could not believe what I just saw. 

I could not wait for my wife to get home so I could share with her my
good news. 

I gave her the letter with the gift card and said, “I guess it really
does pay to procrastinate.” 

She looked at the gift card and then looked up at me and said, “I did
not know your ‘sample' was worth that much money.” 

“Well,” I said rather sarcastically, “now you know.” 

It only proved to me that sometimes procrastination does pay off.
Sometimes when you jump into a problem or circumstance, you pay dearly 
for it. And sometimes, like my “sample” when you procrastinate you get 
paid. 

I then reminded my wife of what King David said. “Wait on the Lord: be
of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on 
the Lord” (Psalm 27:14). 

Of course, the key here is not waiting, but who you are waiting on. I
like to procrastinate until I really know what God wants me to do. 
Sometimes it takes longer than I figured, but when I wait, I am never 
disappointed.
