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.

How do you decide what to memorize? It must be a personality quirk of mine, but I have trouble deciding and sticking with a verse I've chosen. I see others I want to memorize and then jump around, not properly learning anything. I'd love to know how you decide. May be I just need to adjust my thought process.


I just picked up a book put out by Love Inspired Suspense called My Deadly Valentine. When I opened the book up, I found a neat scripture. Psalms 34:4 - I sought the Lord and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears. This fit my life perfect. So I decided that was the one for me. It is amazing how the Lord will drop a scripture into your life just when you need it.
