Christian Counseling - Feeling Alive

There is an interesting exercise that I encourage people to do from time to time. What you do is look at how you are spending your day each day and ask yourself a simple question. Does what you are doing right now make you feel alive or dead inside? After evaluating your activity for a few days, you can then get a better picture of yourself in terms of how much time you are spending doing things that make you feel alive. If you find yourself spending the majority of time in activities that make you feel dead inside, you need to ask yourself, "why?". Of course there are things that we do for work, family, etc. that we are not excited about. However, if the majority of your time is spent in these pursuits, then you need to examine this more fully. The things that make us feel alive are often the areas that God has blessed in our lives. These areas do not have to be grandiose. They are not always of high spiritual significance. As the great runner and Olympian Eric Liddell was quoted as saying, "I believe that God made me for China, but He also made me fast, and, when I run, I feel His pleasure."
