Simplify

As I get closer to the end of 2010, I've been thinking alot about my life and the things in it. This word, SIMPLIFY, keeps rising to the surface and begging me to hear it. To simplify is to reduce back to the basics, the eliminate stresses and anxieties, to streamline. We have no guarantee of another day so the hours and minutes we use should be meaningful for us and for those that God has connected us to.
As part of this personal inventory I am taking I am looking at the work that I do, the people that I talk to and the way I not only spend my time but my money.
So many people today spend all of their time and energy in an acquisition mode and never get to enjoy the fruits of the work that they have engaged in. The work and the money should never be the objective. The joy is in the journey. The excitement is often in the risk.
For many years I never asked myself what I enjoyed or why I was doing what I was doing. I have to force myself to "streamline".
As you draw closer to the final chapter of 2010, why don't you take a few moments to join me and simplify your life. Spend your time doing things that bring glory to God and you will find God's glory upon YOU!
