Catch The Thief! Do It Now! | Showers’ Blessing Inspires | Jacqui Showers

Some of you may wonder what in the world is stealing from Jacqui. Or more precisely you probably should pose the question, “What in the world is stealing from me?” In actuality every day each of us are victims to a notorious scam that robs us of our future. At some point, you have to catch this thief. If not, you will look around and realize that so much has been stolen from you that you have no idea how to put an end to it.

Well, the thief has invaded all of our lives and I know each of you are personally acquainted with this thief—Procrastination. Many of us have been fighting this thief for years…even decades. He is so smooth that he slivers in and before you know it so much time has passed you feel as though you will never be able to catch up. Not to mention, you have so much to do you are clueless about where to start.

I’m here to reassure you that you can catch this thief and put a stop to its thievery. How? By simply doing whatever you need to do whenever you need to do it. Why keep putting off for tomorrow what you know you can easily do and complete today. The more you allow it to linger, the less likely that you get it done. Because you will not do what you know to do right now, believe me it will cause other adverse ramifications that will bring undue stress in your life.

You know that you need to go ahead and pay that bill. Yet, you don’t. You end up accruing late fees that you didn’t have if only you had paid the bill on time. In essence, you are just handing it over and the thief is robbing you without a pistol. Actually, you have been an all out accomplice to this heist of your most precious asset.

This young lady encountered a carjacker. He had a gun pointed directly at her and was trying to steal her car. She wrestled with the carjacker until the gun went off. Instead of the young woman getting shot the carjacker got shot. She stopped that carjacker in his tracks from ripping her off. You see, the car was the least valuable possession that he would have taken from her. If the carjacker had his way, he would have stolen her life from her—he would have stolen her time, her dreams, and her goals.

Procrastination is just like that carjacker. Unless you wrestle with procrastination you will look up and everything will be stolen from you. Your time, your goals, your money, your self-esteem, your new house, your new car, your future, and everything else you have been procrastinating about. Unlike that young lady, she could get another car. Similar to her, you can’t get another life nor can you get back the time that has been stolen from you because you have decided to allow procrastination to rob you blind every single day.

Get up! Take control! Catch the thief before you lose anything else! Now, do everything you have been putting off. Guess what? You shot and killed procrastination and you are no longer subjected to its thievery!

What are you wrestling with that prevents you from doing what you should be doing? How are you going to shoot it and just do it? When are you going to do it? Let me now.





That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past. Eccl 3:15 (KJV)

You alone created my inner being. You knitted me together inside my mother. I will give thanks to you because I have been so amazingly and miraculously made. Your works are miraculous, and my soul is fully aware of this. My bones were not hidden from you when I was being made in secret, when I was being skillfully woven in an underground workshop. Your eyes saw me when I was only a fetus. Every day {of my life} was recorded in your book before one of them had taken place. Psalms 139:13-16 (GW)

Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Jer 1:4-5 (KJV)

For whom he foreknew, he also foreordained to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren: and whom he foreordained, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. Romans 8:29-30 (ASV)

The end of something is better than its beginning… Eccl 7:8

This is what the Lord says, who made you, who formed you in your mother’s body, who will help you: Isaiah 44:2a (TCV)


Father, I am so tired of procrastination robbing me of my time and preventing me from honoring my vows that I have made to you and man. No longer, will I be an accomplice to this thievery that wants to see me fail in life. Jesus came that I would have abundant life. That means that nothing will rob me of this gift. Today, while it is yet today, I will do what I need to do in order to fulfill my purpose and destiny to glorify You. I know as long as I am connected to You and led by the Holy Spirit, procrastination has taken its last breath. It no longer has control over me, but I have taken dominion over it. Thank you for giving me the authority to trample on the serpent heads and to live a life of unparalleled victory! Amen.


prayer for success showersFather, When You said, “Come!” I came. I was afraid at first, but with each step I gained courage as uncertainty and doubt dissipated. Now I defy the gravitational pull of fear as I walk boldly and courageously on the solid foundational waters of faith. I am relentless to succeed. Nothing can stop me from being successful! I exclaim with unbridled abandonment, “I am fearless and I am free! Thank You God!” Amen. #showersblessing
