TOPIC: THE POWER OF SIMPLICITY
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Truly I say to you, whoever does not accept and receive and welcome the kingdom of God like a little child [does] shall not in any way enter it [at all] – LUKE 18:17 (AMPC)
I recently wrote in my journal, “Keep it
simple!” Life is certainly complicated and tends to be very stressful. I spent years praying that my circumstances would change so I could enjoy life, but finally realized I needed to change my approach to life.
How about you? Do you feel the effects of stress and have a desire for simpler days? We often talk of the “good old days,” when life was simpler, but that doesn’t help us much today.
What we need is a change in our attitude
and approach to life. Ony foolish people
think they can keep doing the same thing
and get a different result. Learn how to
think more simply. Don’t think about too
many things at once or allow your schedule
to get over crowded.
Saying no when you need to will help you keep your schedule manageable. Lots of people want lots of things from us, but we don’t have to ruin our life and forfeit our joy to keep them happy.
Take some time today to take an inventory of your life. Ask yourself if you are enjoying it. If not, I urge you to make whatever adjustments are necessary in order to do so.
Prayer Starter: Father, I love You very
much, and I am grateful for the life You
have given me. I want to enjoy life and use
my time wisely, and I ask for Your help in
making any changes that are necessary for
me to live simply and powerfully.
