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.

It's down on my card too. I need another week as well.

Kathy Butryn

Me too! Love this verse in The Living Bible. I agree about having something tangible to hold and refer to often throughout the day. Love putting my memory verses on cards.


Great verse! Like the translation! I need this one too.

While I would like to be memorizing Scripture weekly, I haven't made it a habit yet. But when you posted this one the other day, I came and wrote it down on a card and have it up! I love this one!

Melissa @ Breath of Life

I need His help, too! And I need to be memorizing Scripture again!


what font do you use for the cards? i'm a font junkie....

i love the transplant visual of this verse:

Ezekiel 11:19
I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh.


As soon as I saw this verse, I had to write it down. Thanks for sharing it from The Living Bible. It is now on my list of ones I NEED to memorize.

Lisa notes...

I had a review week last week, too.

@chapmanchick: I love your Ezekiel transplant verse. I'll add it to my To-Be-Memorized list.


My post is finally up at:

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Only God could orchestrate you putting up that scripture on an evening when I'm struggling.

Oh, I think I need to print that one out too!

On your comment about being awake at 3:00am, that is the hour Christ died, the enlightening hour. When you wake at that hour, it is said to be your most creative time, God wakes you to act on your resources. It doesn't work for me, I can't even see at 3:00am, but then I haven't really tried. I thought this was an inspiring thought and a moment I may seize at some point.
