What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

Amen, sister. Thanks for that. And... praying for you today. It will be a great day!

Yay that Kristen is coming! I almost drove by your house this morning, but it was quite early...took Chris to the a'port.

Praying you have a wonderful, anxiety-free day.


God is in the small stuff. He taught me long ago, that if I will bother Him with the small things, there will never be any big things. Cause it's all small stuff. Love the scripture in Psalms 116:2 NLT Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath! Just as we bend down to pay closer attention to our children when they speak, our heavenly Father does the same thing. Heard this or was taught it somewhere, and it always stuck.


God gave me Psalm 46:5 the other day and I've been chanting it ever, God is GOOD.

God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.

Thank you Lord...

And what I did was "God is within ME, I will not fall; God will help ME at break of day." OR "God is within Joanne, she will not fall; God will help Joanne at break of day."

I hit the floor a lot too. And I'm always asking if I can just stay there. :)


Your post made me think of a verse I ran across the other day. Seems to fit perfect!!!

When anxiety was great within me,
your consolation brought joy to my soul
Psalm 94:19

Glad to know I'm not the only one! I met God last night with a heavy and very distracted heart; but felt so much better after emptying it. I just wish I could stop doing U-turns and picking some of the things up from the foot of the cross and carrying them around again. Someone pointed out to me that even Jesus had to pray 3 times that night in the garden.
