SIMPLICITY is simple?

  • one of the things about simplicity is that it is not easy to start
  • but I know:
  • it has to start in the heart and I do believe
  • that what I/we may think of as simplicity is not what God
  • is wanting to work in my heart.....
  • I did think it would be easy
  • just eat less and use less and buy less and do less
  • but that is not quite how it is turning out for me
  • yes, I do turn out the lights when I leave a room
  • and I try to be ''green''. and many other so on...
  • but I see too that God wants me to start sharing
  • the things that I do have--
  • and not the typical ''drop off of old clothes'' at the
  • thrift store- sigh- I knew it was not going to be
  • that easy-
  • but what then is it that I am to do?
  • I am not sure yet but I know it is cutting into
  • my selfish heart
  • it is so easy to get caught up in what I have
  • and keep it to myself-
  • after all - it is mine- isn't it ?
  • and I did work for it etc etc etc. and
  • some of it holding a memory too ......
  • alas I have to say that I do not know
  • what God is going to ask me to do
  • but I do know that I am going to
  • have to become ''still'' and know
  • that He is God----and He owns the stuff
  • pray with me as I sort this out in my life
  • sigh
  • and I thought a cup of simplicity was going to be simple
