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 got a copy of Hinds' Feet on High Places from Paperbackswap and have been reading it over the weekend. What a great story. Simple but chock full of truth. Someone had recommended the book to me 4 1/2 years ago, and I'm finally reading it.

My memory verse for the week is Psalm 119:71, "It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn Your statutes."


My verse this week is Proverbs 3:5
"Trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding."

I love putting the verses into first person. I think they stay with me more when I do that.

Lisa notes...

I also love how you put that into first person. Makes it even more powerful and meaningful. I'll have to try that myself.

I'm learning Proverbs 30:8-9 this week, trying to be satisfied with the perfect amount of trials and blessings that God sends my way...
