I am Sick.

Just a cold, but it is still annoyingly disruptive for the end of the term.

While sick, my focus shifts; the fact I am sick becomes the center of my attention and consumes me. It changes the way I think, respond, and act. I live differently because I am ill. People around me can see the difference and know I am sick.*

Pondering this made me think about my relationship with Jesus.

I want my life as His follower to affect me like sickness does. I want Jesus to be my focus, the center of my attention, the thing that consumes me. Christianity should change the way I think, respond, and act. I should live differently because of my relationship with Jesus. People around me should see the difference in my life and know I am a Christian.

*The perk of being sick is that I feel so well taken care of. My friends are giving me tea, fruit, vitamins, and medicine. Throughout the day, I am asked as to the state of my well-being and encouraged to get better.
