I just finished reading a fabulous book , "Breathe" by Keri Wyatt Kent. It's message boasts a life of simplicity. I wanted to include an exerpt. The author had so many excellent points that it was difficult to chose only one to highlight.
"If we had no punctuation or spaces in this book,
It is the space in between that gives our words their meaning. It is the spaces you put in your day to help you understand the meaning of all your work, all your striving. Pausing reminds you to be mindful, to be aware, to look for God in the midst of all the craziness."
She goes on to say, "A hurried life not only affects our physical well-being, but our spiritual health as well. If we move too fast, God gets put in the margin of our lives, squeezed to the sidelines."
"Simplicity is not a method. At it's heart, simplicity is a relationship with God that is focused on Him and is growing, changing and evolving."
This book is full of sound, biblical advice for living an unhurried life.
This is the what I desire for myself as well as my family. It's not about living a perfect life, but keeping our focus on Jesus. Sounds pretty good to me!
How do you desire to live your life?
Slow and easy, or fast and furious?
Matthew 6:33 (New Living Translation)
33 Seek the Kingdom of God[a] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
