Easy vs. Simple

By Paula Marolewski, November 16, 2009 3:39 pm

The older I get, the more I see a peculiar dichotomy:

Life becomes more and more complicated, because:

  • Pat answers don’t fit anymore.
  • People are more complex than I’d ever imagined.
  • Situations are more tangled than I could even believe possible.

Yet life also becomes more and more simple, because as my understanding of God expands, I see that:

  • His knowledge is deeper than all the pat answers in the world – he is Wisdom.
  • His salvation extends to every soul in need – he is Love.
  • His power is sovereign over all the mess we make of our lives – he is Grace.

Perhaps a part of maturity is to come to the realization that life will never be easy – but that as we trust God more and more, it can become simple again.

    Amen and amen. I tend to overanalyse things and frequently need to be reminded of the simplicity of God.
