Simple : A simple word – a life we would all love to live daily. However, life makes it not so simple.
Simple definition: not hard to do : not difficult:free from Pain
My life sure hasn’t been simple the last two years… let me give you a low-down.

The most difficult thing I have realize – life is NOT simple by any means. I am sure everyone else has roller coasters in their everyday life. We see each other through a two-way mirror – we think the other is having the perfect marriage, home and children.
How do you become victorious. I sure haven’t felt any victory in my life in the last year and half. I felt like I have fallen on my face with a thud. I thought I actually saw stars. I would lay in bed daily looking at the ceiling asking God – why me? Why do you let me go through all these struggles?
I forgot to state the best thing that happen last year – I became remarried to a man who has supported me through these times of not so simple life.
Through this I promised God 2014 IS going to be different. I finally let go of all the guilt and heaviness I have carried all last year. I am becoming to realize the more I let go – the lighter I feel – I am free – I am refreshed.
God has made me Victorious.
I am humbled everyday about how much He has carried me through. I became attached to this Bible verse. I cling on it – read it daily – and it changed my life.
Philippians 4:6″ Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
Wow – I read this and think – I am the most impatient person I know . I worry about everything and if I see that chance to escape I just jump into it and bypass God and His will.
At the end – I fail and I am far from Victorious.
How can I make it so simple – it is easy – trust in God. Let Him work in His time. During my darkest moments, I will be honest, I blamed God for all the mud I was being drag through. I am still bad about trying to take control of the right here, right now. I want it now, like a two-year old wants that ice cream.
Since, I am learning to make my life simple, I am finding my life more simple. I am so blessed to feel God’s grace everyday. He was always there – I was just being prideful.
If you feel like life is giving you a headache daily, every minute, every second. Take a breathe and pray to God for Him to step in the moment and help Him make your life simple.
Your life will feel VICTORIOUS!
