Five Minute Friday Simplify

This is one of the occasions that I picked the song for this post, before I even really thought about what I wanted to write. As soon as I read that the word was simplify, I thought of the below song by the Newsboys. I have to admit that I am not great at simplifying. Even as a teen my Dad would joke with me about my knack for making things far more complicated than they needed to be. I tend to wander down rabbit trails, and put way too much thought into “what-if” scenarios. Here is the kind of “what-if” that could be helpful for 2018. What if I stopped worrying so much? What if I stopped overthinking things? What if I had the courage to simply love God and love others, and to live out that love. Maybe I would be more at peace and more joyful throughout 2018. This sounds like a good way to simplify to me.

      I am reminded of the quote by Van Wilder, “Worrying is like a rocking chair. It give you something to do, but it doesn’t get you anywhere.”
      Thank you for stopping by, friend!

    This is a great way to turn what-ifs into something positive! I’m a worrier too and often thinking worst case scenarios and not how I could lean into a more positive version of a what-if. Thanks! I’m your neighbor (#8) in the FMF link-up today!

      Yes, I need to prayerfully refocus my worries into prayers asking God how I can be a blessing to those in the situations that I am worried about. I hope that you have a lovely weekend.
