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.

I'm not sure there are enough allowable character spaces in the comment box to list all of my unwise/can I have a redo please/choices.

And...isn't THIS the top of my journal page FROM THIS a list of a couple of things that I laid out to God and said, "can I please have a do-over?"

So. How's THAT for reinforcement of His word to me this morning?

Love ya.



I think I'm going to write that out and post it in our school room! We are always talking about the decisions we make sometimes have lasting effects. But saying it like this is so much simpler and to the point! Thanks for sharing.

Yes! Praying for you as you write tomorrow! May God speak more than you can write!


Can I say AMEN! Great post and great encouragement.


Lately I feel so stretched and pulled - so many things that NEED to be done - that I feel like doing none of them. I feel like vegging - in order to put off or escape from the weight of it all - being a mother and wife, housework, church duties, being in college - tons of studying and homework. Ahhh. It stresses me writing it all. And so, these days I feel like I do not make the wise choice too often. I want some "easy" moments - so I choose nothing. I don't like that - the way I am coping. I will try to make the wise choice...


On a completely random note - our birthdays are coming up! Yay March people!


I say the same things to my little ones regularly, and it often speaks to me as well. Great honest post and encouragement. Our God is loving and forgiving, and thankfully he is willing to guide us, even when we aren't so quick to choose the wise thing.

definitely good stuff, thank you! I think the most convicting thing for me was listening to Alistair Begg's series on The Ten Commandments. wow.
