  1. Thank you for sharing your words of encouragement. Slow things down and increase my relationship with Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior.

  2. Yes, my heart yearns for simplicity. When I read your description of how many tabs you have open on your browser, I was nodding my head in understanding. I don’t want to miss anything important—anything that will help me grow to be a better mother, wife, friend, person—yet, my soul yearns for simplicity too. This sounds like a great study.

  3. In Courage & Becky,

    A life of simplicity, an unfrazzled mind, and a contented heart come not from what the world tells us to pursue but from trusting God. Our world says stay connected so you know what’s going on all the time. Keep abreast of the latest news, what friends/family are doing etc. A mind can only hold so much information. All the scrolling, news. pictures, etc. isn’t calming-it’s makes one drained & worn out. It can also wreck havoc on your health. You don’t get the rest you need, your mind rushes with all the things you need to achieve, do, want, etc. God wants to give us a simpler life. That comes with fixing our eyes on Jesus. Living a contented life. Satisfied with ALL that He has given us. Don’t compare ourselves to others-just be happy with what we have & live the life God has blessed us with.

    Blessings 🙂
