Here it comes — Christmas time and that feeling there is too much to do and not enough time. I read recently that the feeling of being hurried is not the result of living such a full life that we have no time. Instead it is born of a vague fear that we are wasting our life so we do everything but the one thing we ought to do.
The apostle Paul tells us to not be anxious. (Philippians 4:6). Anxiety comes from always trying to live ahead of where we are. We spend today trying to figure out tomorrow. God tells us to trust him with tomorrow. Give yourself to what you are doing today. You will sense an awareness that enables you to enjoy the current activity, instead of going through each day in a blur of activity and confusing thoughts which leave you drained and exhausted.
Do you fear you won’t accomplish enough this way? Maybe so, but you will enjoy what you do a whole lot more.
