The Lord is my Shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; He leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to His name.
Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for You are close beside me. Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me. You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely Your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.psalm 23
I’ve spent most of my life grasping at things offered while paying little attention to where I could best invest my energy. I’ve searched the scriptures on choosing God’s best. Unfortunately, no verses say, “Volunteer for this organization, Give your time to this endeavor, Do this, Do that, etc.” When choosing God’s best, we must rely upon the truth of scripture and the indwelling wisdom of the Holy Spirit. This printable is a culmination of things I’ve learned along the way. They are just a few simple questions to ask yourself – before committing to something. I hope this helps you decipher God’s best for your life.
Simplicity does not happen naturally, but it has wholeheartedly changed my life. The older I get, the more simplified my life becomes. I often fight the urge to buy more, do more, and achieve more. Yet the more time I spend with Jesus – the more the words of Psalm 23 permeate my soul.
I compiled a short list of ways my life changes whenever simplicity is its goal. These rewards far outweigh man’s accolades or any money the world offers. These are beautiful treasures to me; maybe you value them as well. If so, feel free to download this printable as a reminder of the greater glory that simplicity brings.
