Feeling alive

“May, more than any other month of the year, wants us to feel most alive” Fennel Hudson. A beautiful description aptly following on from the joys of Easter last month. Remembering the promise of a new and eternal life and the knowledge that Jesus is alive!

What brings you most alive? Is it someone you always look forward to spending time with, family holiday, being out and about in the great outdoors, get together with friends, a hobby or activity, your work?

If you could spend more time on the things you loved to do, which made you feel alive, how different would your day be? Sometimes the tasks we fill our days with are the things that don’t actually bring us fulfilment. We can all to easily busy ourselves chasing opportunities, looking for the next best thing. However this distracts. Pulling you away from what’s important to you. Draining your energy and preventing you from spending the time with those who matter the most to you. The things that make you feel happy. How many times have you said “I don’t have the time to…” We each have the option to make the best of every situation each day brings. To decide where and how our time is spent. Take action today to plan into your diary more of what makes you feel alive, schedule activities around your commitments. See what you can change about your current commitments and duties to make them work better and feel better for you. Watch the effect it brings.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Matthew 6:25-26
