Contentment in life, and confidence in the future.
A peaceful heart that is focused on God.
Trust. Faith. Hope.
The Simple Life is A Beautiful Life.
Always stay calmly conscious of God. Calmly conscious. I love those two words together. A constant awareness of His presence provides a joy, and security that will help you endure.
Collaborate with God continually. Relationships require desire, dedication, and decision. A woman's relationship with God is central to a successful life. Prayer and Bible reading cultivate a deeper connection with Him, and blessings follow. Blessings beyond our own abilities.
Learn to rest in God. We must study in order to learn. We must practice an art to develop new skills. The same is true of our faith. God promises that we will learn from Him, but we have to 'hang out' with Him for that to happen. We can choose to accept God's rest, and just be still. Then we become more aware of His presence, and familiar with His ways.
For me, resting in God means that I have to hand over my plans and my heart to Him, and then trust Him to take care of me. To take care of all the details. I have learned that He does a much better job than I do on my own.
The Simple Life is not about what we have, or how busy our life is. Instead, I believe it refers to the state of our spirit. Are we trusting in God, or do we strive to make it through life alone?
