As we continue pressing into the new year 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, 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 looking at the work that I do, the people that I talk to and the way I spend my time and 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 of my life I never asked myself what I enjoyed or why I was doing what I was doing. So this exercise is bringing great enjoyment.
Why don't you take a few moments look at how you might simplify your life. Spend your time doing things that bring glory to God and you will find God's glory all over YOU!
