What are the first thoughts that spring into mind when you wake up in the morning?
Many people immediately think of all the things that have to be done and begin to make a mental list. Are you one of these people?
At this busy time of the year the lists can seem endless and produce feelings of being overwhelmed and anxious – even before you get out of bed!
Richard Reeves, of The Work Foundation said: “The demands of work, family and commuting make us feel as if we are constantly trying to catch up with ourselves.” For many of us life is one big rush and there is never enough time to do everything. A new phrase has been coined to describe this worldwide condition that many suffer from: ‘Hurry sickness.’
But how many of us stop and ask this more important question each morning? “Who do I want to be today?” After all we are human ‘beings’ not human ‘doings.’ What kind of people do we choose to be each day?
Jesus Christ knew who he was and always acted accordingly. We are made in the image of God and we too need to act accordingly. I would like to suggest this needs to be an intentioned thought each morning and once decided upon can influence our whole day positively.
Whether or not we get to the bottom of that never ending list!
