    Thanks Jeff for this. I know, personally, how hard it can be sometimes to feel God’s grace. Usually, during these times, it’s because I’ve become neurotic with the works and religious aspects of my walk. I really appreciate your aspect on this and see no coincidence that it aligned with mine and my wife’s prayers for continued simplicity in Christ.

      That is so good to hear, Mike. I lived as a first-class legalist for many years. I could only feel content and secure if I was performing at an optimum level. When struggles, failures or sin arose in my heart, I determined to work even harder to validate my self with God. It was exhausting. I still want to live with excellence, but it comes to me now through Jesus-focus, not striving. I’m grateful that the post resonated with you. Blessings to you, bro.

    Bro. Jeff you make this simple with your writing. Your prayer is even simple unto a God who always hears. One thing I would love to follow here is to be simple in the belief of God our Father and Jesus our Lord who is the True Son of god. Thanks again my brother this is well said. God Bless you and all the family there.
