The Simple List is my way of pointing you to something redeeming on the webs, something thought provoking or eye-catching or soul-refreshing. I can’t keep up with all the good words out there but I try to curate a few things every now and then that might be of help.
I hope these links are reminders of the simplest things that make a good life: truth, goodness, beauty.
What is Calling & Should We Stay in the Military @ Bekah Difelice
“Calling tends to be confusing because it implies there is a solicitation I’m still waiting on, an invitation lost in the mail.
But now I’m starting to suspect that calling is far more invisible than I initially imagined, that it often involves an internal equipping instead of an external beckoning.”
“I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the LORD
In the land of the living.
Wait on the LORD;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the LORD!”
Feasting: An Act of War @ Story Warren
“No doubt you have been at a feast that was an act of war. Perhaps you didn’t realize it at the time, but you have. Anytime you sit at a table with those who share your conviction that Jesus is returning, you declare war on the lies of this world — this mixed-up, passing-away, broken world. You reinstate the truth of creation, joy, and all things made new.” [emphasis mine]
