Decisions Determine Destiny

Can we talk about the lost art of delayed gratification?! Unfortunately, this is a foreign concept to a majority of people. I had touched on it in a conversation with someone recently and I was asked to repeat myself, so I did, and this person started laughing. I immediately asked what was so funny, to which they replied, “Nothing’s funny. It’s amazing you said that because you don’t hear people talk about delayed gratification. I cannot tell you the last time I heard someone use that particular phrase.”

People are so caught up with what they want now, now, now, “in this moment,” spending their checks to buy some “thing” to fill a current void or gap, only for that void to still be there until the next time they feed it with another material “thing.” They do this with people, too; they’d rather have Mr./Ms. Right Now vs. Mr./Ms Right. ‘Instant Gratification’ is a vicious cycle than can have a stronghold on you for years, decades, even a lifetime; a cycle you can pass down to generations if you aren’t conscious and aware. I’ve been there before and I can genuinely say… WAIT ON IT! Hold out for God’s best in ALL areas of your life. It’s perfectly fine to go without (for now) than to go with some “thing” or some “one” that’s only there for the moment.
