TT :Simplicity

Men oftentimes opt for complications in order to look busy so it seems. They want to indulge in as many activities they can grab, responsibilities they can handle, even relationships they can manage and many eventually end up frustrated, left alone, confused and hopeless.

The good news is we don’t need to be part of that line of frustration. Jesus offers us the best way to live our lives. Let Him be the center of your life and the center of everything you do and your life will be released from the complications of worries, distress, anxieties and hopelessness. He even offers us rest from all our burdens!

I thank God for this blessing of living a simple, joyful life with Him and my family. Everyday is always a blessing knowing that in all the complexities in life, Jesus is there to make it simple. As Jesus said to Martha, “Martha, Martha,' the Lord answered, 'you are worried and upset about many things but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her." (Luke 10:41-42). That’s simplicity in God’s eyes!
