Today, for the first time in a long time, I have done absolutely nothing. I have not sought anything to do and any place to go and no obligation has sought me either! So, I am enjoying lying around my house, playing with social media (actually using Twitter and setting up an Instagram account) running after my son, playing video games with my wife, and watching terrible movies on Hulu, Netflix, and Dish Network with various company. Funny enough, today, I actually am enjoying it. Usually, I must have something to do or I feel unaccomplished and aimless. When I stopped to think about and admit that a lot of my self-worth was wrapped up in activity, I resolved in 2014 to never allow this again. If I want to do nothing, then I will do nothing and I will still be important and fulfilled! This is a big resolve for me. I usually load up my time and schedule with singing, preaching, writing papers for classes, work, etc. When I have leisure time, I even load that up as well with movies, shopping, etc. Activity! Truthfully, I probably need to observe the Sabbath with Seventh Day Adventists and Jewish people, but that’s a little too much for me. However, I get the principle of rest and taking time to worship and reflect. So, I encourage you all to do the same. Do nothing every once and a while. Keep me accountable. Peace!
