A Good Simple
My life can tend to get a bit complicated and overthought. I was golfing today and that's definitely a sport that tends to work best when you don't overthink. When I'm standing over the ball and thinking about a million different things to do and not do... I'm most certainly going to hit an awful shot. But when I'm at ease, and focus on doing what's natural I play best.
Yes... it's important to look at things you can do better in life, but being consumed by self-betterment can only make the self... not better. That probably wasn't correct grammer, but hopefully you get my point. There has to be a balance between not caring about life, and caring too much. That's a place on the map I'm still trying to find.
Philipians 3:8 - "What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ."
That's a pretty simple view of life if you ask me. I want to lose my desire to be great on the earth, and stop trying to be this super person that conquers all my goals. But my desire is to gain dreams that make me great in heaven, that all my thought would be bent on Jesus... knowing him more, not making my self better. Finding a balance between striving and resting. A good simple.
