KISS

Keep it simple, stupid.

I have always loved the directness of simple thought. Perhaps it's is because I am a bit simple myself. Oh, well. So it may be.

This morning in church we focused on simple things. We talked about the need to simply trust God. When the going gets tough, trust Him. When the answer eludes, trust Him. When the dark hovers and the tunnel is long, trust Him.

I've been up and down a bit lately. Sensing a transition. No, more than sensing -- I'm in the midst of a transition -- and feeling very unsure of where and how it will all end. Now -- finally -- I remember my favorite counsel: KISS. For example: trust Him. Period.

I forgot that simple does me fine. No complex sorting out, no great lengthy expositions. Just plain truth. It rings true, inspires me, and catches the wind in my sails. Others may need a deep understanding, and there is a time and place for that, I am sure. But the bottom line of His truth remains simple enough for a child to grasp. Jesus is that accessible.

Simple enough for even me.

I am so glad to hear you say this. I am often wowed by how some others have analyzed their situation and what God is telling them through it. I am with you - it's just as easy for me to simply trust. All I really need to know is that God will come through like He has so many other times.
