Spiritual Disciplines // SIMPLICITY & FASTING
By Isaac Hovet
Every day is simple. We wake up, we go about our business and then we go to sleep.
Have you had trouble sleeping before? Are you troubled now? When sleep eludes me, I am helped when I come back to the simple things.
Simply Jesus. Simply his Word. Simply pray. Simply trust.
Even as I write these words I am comforted. Life with Jesus simplifies so many things. I am called to abide with him.
On Sunday, I from 1 Peter 2:
“You were lost sheep with no idea who you were or where you were going. Now you’re named and kept for good by the Shepherd of your souls.”1 Peter 2:21-25 MSG
Today, simply trust Jesus as your great shepherd. When you cannot sleep or when you are weary or when you are troubled or full of anxiety, remember that you are ‘named’ and that you are ‘kept for good.’ You’re deeply loved.
