Man, sometimes I feel like the laziest person I know.
I live with two other women, and we’re all quite different from one another. Both of my roommates put me to shame when it comes to focus. They both always seem to be studying, or getting lots of other things done. One of my roommates has commented on several occasions that since I’ve moved into the apartment, she feels like she’s been on a nearly non-stop vacation. She means it as a complement, but I can’t help but feel the indictment in it too.
Let’s add to the equation, that the sermon series for the last few weeks at my church has been Fresh Start (it’s good stuff. listen to it here). This series among other things, has been challenging us to recognize where we may’ve dropped the ball –perhaps in 2009– and encouraging us to get back on track in 2010. Hey, there’s no shame in placing a sermon series at the top of the new year that hopefully capitalizes on our desire to start a new year off on the right foot.
All totaled. I feel like a lazy lump. Over the last few months, my to do lists seem to be less and less crossed off. I’ll even confess that I may have avoided making a list (literal or metaphorical) on a few occasions, just so I wouldn’t have to face it unfinished at the end of the day.
But, I keep returning to God on this topic, and we’re working on some things together.
So, do you feel lazy? Are you doing anything about it?
