"For God is not a God of confusion, but of peace." “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. " --- 1 Corinthians 14:33, Isaiah 48:17

So last year a well-known evangelist took a survey as to whether he should continue writing at his blog. As I knew would happen, he received a thousand replies. Most folks said,
"Yes! Continue writing."
Yet others said, "End it."
And "Maybe temporarily close it? Return to it later?"
Also, "Write in it fewer times each week."
Or,"Get someone to help you."
And, "Do what you believe is best."
Me? I rolled my eyes, then clicked to a new blog while thinking, "Sheesh! Why didn't he just ask God? God gives only one answer, the personalized, right one, not a bunch of confusion-causing ones."
Perhaps you've noticed I (generally) don't ask my readers what I should do with my life.
I mean, hey. Of course I love all 120+ of you, but I prefer simplicity over hundreds of varying answers.
The Holy Spirit, my oh my, is Mr. Simplicity. What matters most is that I listen to Him.
Oh, He may lead me to a book. A vlogger. A movie, teacher, song, memory, map, website or friend. But never all in one tiny time period, never each with contradicting advice. No, that would whisk me away to figuring things out. To confusion.
The Holy Spirit never leads me there. If I'm confused, it's certainly not His fault(!)
Why mention this? Because with our huge upcoming move, simplicity will remain vital. How easy, how average/typical to make one's head spin (and achy) during a life change!
Instead, Tom and I will calmly, daily, ask God for wisdom. For His personalized answers and where to find any information we need.
Basically, we live our everyday life this way so why wander from that?
"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." --- Jeremiah 29:13
“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”
“Like all magnificent things, it's very simple.”
Now, here was an uplifting, fun movie: Savannah Sunrise. Tom and I enjoyed it much. No cautions even worth mentioning on this one. ツ
Another movie? A Father's Legacy. Now, it took me 15 minutes to decide whether to continue, but I'm grateful I did. Christian themes, but there is violence and a small smattering of language.
Why share movie recommendations? Because too many Christians online quip, "They don't make good movies anymore!" Basically, that's a lie (sorry, but it is), so I'm out to spread truth, instead.

Please remember: My posts are always about more than they appear to be.
