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.

Your quote this morning from Jesus Calling really struck a cord with me. "Old ways" are so hard to let go of because so often I am already acting out in the "old way" before I realize that I am doing it. Many of my "old ways" have been held on to for so long that they have become THE WAY of acting/reacting. It is going to take God's help to LET GO of the old ways that I know do not work and to replace them with a new and better way.


Thanks for the inspiration! I am starting with 1 Timothy 6:6. Happy New Year to you, Toben, and the girls! May God continue to sustain you and fill your hearts with joy!
