Simple Life = Happy Life

Simple Life = Happy Life

I think the key to a happy life is to keep things simple. Everyone understands simple. I think we are the ones that sometimes complicates things. I know that as I get older and technology changes every five minutes…..I appreciate simple.

We take a group of Guts Girls to a women’s correctional facility every month to help change the lives of so many women that just need a little shift in their perspective on life. Statistics show that many people leave prison and return within months. I think there are many reasons for this. One is they return to what is familiar. They are comfortable with being told what to do and when to do it. They need the structure that so many missed out on growing up. I think many return to old relationships that got them in trouble in the first place. I think the biggest reason they return is because they don’t know how to live free! I think that there are so many people that live this way everyday. They don’t know how to live free.

We all know that there is only one way to live free, Jesus, but then what?  We have to go back to the beginning. 1 Peter 2:24 says that Jesus bore all of our sins AND all of our sicknesses. It’s done! Jesus did it all on the cross so we can live free but so many believe the salvation part but not the other part. The same moment He took all of our sicknesses, poverty or lack, fear, depression, addictions, broken hearts, family genetic problems and anything else that is contrary to the word of God. It’s so simple! We are free! God is not going to send Jesus back to the cross. The ball is in your court. You take it like you took salvation. You believe in your heart and confess with your mouth and you will have it. It’s by faith. You didn’t earn it nor deserve it. It’s by grace and what Jesus has already done. It’s available to you as a believer. The choice is yours. Choose life!

Now get out there and be happy,
