Enough? What is it; and how to know when I find it.

Enough...what is enough? Contentment is mystifying, but the Bible simplifies that for me: Just give me Jesus! This is the 3rd post in a series on my quest to focus on the main things in my life to live simpler.

15. What is enough and how can I know when I have it?

16. Do I have enough silence built into my life?

17. What does God want me to do right now?

18. What will be the fruit of this activity in 5 years?

19. What will be the fruit of this activity in eternity?

20. What job that I normally do can someone else do 80% as well? Where can I delegate to someone else and life is improved for me and others?

21. If I died today what would I wish I had done that I did not accomplish?
I'm processing my answers to these questions as I embrace new ministry, new job, and discovering the best life to live as new widow. God calls me to live abundanty and I am committed to not wasting a moment of the rest of my life. I've loved your insights and I want more from you. My best ideas will pale in comparison to what I can plan on with your thoughts along with mine taken prayerfully to our Father.

This one hit home for me. I was once caught up in the "I have too much to get done, how can I ever find the time". Yet it seemed like I knew people who were making it work. When I started having my quiet time on a regular basis and daily seeking God first thing in the morning - I realized I had more time in the day. I didn't give anything up, I didn't stay up any later - the difference was asking God on a daily basis to guide me. I didn't even realize it at first until one day I was mowing the lawn - leisurely - thinking "how is it I'm not as busy as I once was" and then realized, I was - but God had given me whatever it was I needed to not be stressed about it and just get it done. Thank you Kay!

Thrive In Christ

Who I Am In Christ by Neil Anderson

For several months we will center on this book to pursue Thriving in our Christian journey.

Neil challenges us with: "Do you know who you are in God's eyes? We are no longer products of our past. We are primarily products of Christ's work on the cross. Who we are determines what we do.

You are not who you are in Christ because of the things you have done, you are in Christ because of what He has done. He died and rose again so that you and I could live in the FREEDOM of His love."

That's just the introduction. More to follow.
