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 am starting corporate Bible Study toward the end of January. We'll be doing Beth Moore's study on Revelation, Here and Now...There and Then. But I also began a new personal Bible Study on Jan. 1 using Our Daily Bread Devotional Journal. It has the familiar short reading, but it also includes space to write the Biblical Truths, Personal Application, Prayer Requests, and Answers to Prayer on the page. I am so enjoying being in the Word and studying it this way.

I just bought Living Beyond Yourself and am planning to work through it on my own. My word for this year is serve (with an underlying theme of being really "here" - wherever I am). I'm thinking a foundation and reminder of the fruits of the Spirit is more than timely.

It must be a God-thing! At our church, this year we have begun what we are calling "The Love Project." We are being encouraged, each of us, to be intentional in loving God, loving the Body of Christ, and loving our neighbors. This week we are also encouraged to memorize 1 John 3:18 - "Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth." I'm like you, I would like to be able to, at the end of the year, say: "I was more intentional in loving.

"Adventurous Prayer" and in my PM study we are doing "Experiencing God"

We're continuing our study in Acts as the women's Bible study. On my own devotional is Unto The Hills by Billy Graham. I just finished Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. I love hearing what everybody is doing; it helps to come up with ideas for when this study is over.

Although I am feeling behind on having a word for the year....I haven't thought much about the year ahead. Been living very day to day for now. I like the idea of reflecting and setting a course but it's not looking promising for the new year.

Instead of doing a spring and fall Bible study, the women's ministry teamed up with the men's ministry and encouraged everyone to join in reading The One Year Bible (NLT). The response has been amazing. We will meet 2 times per month on Sundays from 5:00-6:15p.m. for accountability and small group review and discussion. But the LOVE theme is definitely my deal this year!!! I worked on memorizing all of 1 Cor. 13 (the Love chapter) in Nov. and Dec. for my birthday present to Jesus on Christmas day. Now that I've got it in my head, I'm sure He wants me to put it into practice from my heart in 2011!!! And our Women's Ministry Prayer Retreat is in 2 weeks and our theme is LOVE THE LORD. BE THE LIGHT. (from Mt. 5:14 "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.") So I wholeheartedly concur that Love is the new black!!!

I know you are in the hospital right now so my husband and I prayed for you tonight. Love, joy and peace, Dana Goodwin
