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 learning to believe with expectation. Sooo hard to do sometimes. But God just won't let this go with me right now. Thinkin' He just might be up to somethin'! Learned my verses last week and will be starting fresh with the new ones today!

I LOVE that you coupled those two passages together...because without the freedom and forgiveness promised in the passage from 1st John, there is no way on EARTH that we, as women, could live up to the qualifications of the Proverbs 31 woman! God is SO good! I love studying the links between scriptures....and the more I think on the links, the more God's greatness blows my mind!

Our verse this week is SO simple, but our class at church is, after all, called "Home Builders"! But, sometimes the simplest of principles can be so easily forgotten...

Much love!
