“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”
What’s hindering you? Is it distractions form the world? Is it an over-scheduled schedule? Is it the comparison trap of trying to keep up with what everyone else is doing? Is it the chasing the world? Is it chasing after having more “things?”
Simplifying is about getting rid of all those things, so that we can run the race set forth before us unhindered and unencumbered.
Stuff weighs us down. The overabundance becomes draining rather than freeing.
Our schedules can be too full, and often we need to re-evaluate the important things.
Truth be told, it is hard to hear his voice in a noisy world. It is hard to see Him in a world going by so fast. It is hard to focus on him when we are feeling the pull of so many other things calling for our attention.
When we run the race, we can run swiftly without anything weighing us down. We can experience the freedom of running with our eyes firmly fixed on Him.
How do we do this though?
Stop. Re-evaluate. Prioritize.
Ask youself these questions?
Let’s get out there together and simplify. In a consumer driven, fast paced, busy world…let’s get busy doing things that matter. Things for Him. Let’s choose to simply live…for Him!

Karen DeBeus is a homeschooling mom learning to live more simply and keep God at the center of it all. She is the author of three best-selling homeschooling books and writes at Simply Living for Him. She speaks nationally at homeschooling conventions and recently was a speaker at the Family Bible Conference in Washington, DC. Her passion is to help others clear the clutter from their lives, seek God first, and to encourage women and families to get in the Word every day.
In 2016, she founded the Simply Living for Him Retreat, which is a time of rest and renewal for all women seeking Jesus. She enjoys life on her hobby farm with her husband and four children. Together they are a work-at-home family pursuing a simple life with purpose and, above all, seeking to glorify God in all they do.
