Jesus answered, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep
my word. My Father will love him, and we will come
to him and make our home with him.
John 14:23

Follow and Obey #w2wministries #obedience #obey #follow #followGod

I recently got a hard lesson in obeying. I have a tooth ache. The dreaded wisdom tooth my dentist has been warning me about for a couple of years now. I’ve ignored her because, well, dental work terrifies me a bit. This past weekend the tooth became infected and caused a great deal of pain. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep, and I could hardly talk. I just sat there crying. I tried numbing gel, numbing mouthwash, ice packs, and pain medication. Typically, I avoid pain medication, but this pain was severe enough to take it. Nothing was working, so I took more pain medication. After a few hours the pain had not subsided, so I took more. My husband told me that he thought I had taken enough pain medication, but I hurt too bad and ignored him as I popped four more tablets.

 When He entered Capernaum again after some days, it was reported

that He was at home. So many people gathered together that there was
no more room, not even in the doorway, and He was speaking the word
to them. They came to Him bringing a paralytic, carried by four of them.
Since they were not able to bring Him to Jesus because of the crowd, they
removed the roof above Him, and after digging through it, they lowered
the mat on which the paralytic was lying. Seeing their faith, Jesus told the
paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” But some of the scribes were
sitting there, questioning in their hearts: “Why does He speak like this?
He’s blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” Right away Jesus
perceived in His spirit that they were thinking like this within themselves
and said to them, “Why are you thinking these things in your hearts? Which
is easier: to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up,
take your mat, and walk’? But so that you may know that the Son of Man
has authority on earth to forgive sins”—He told the paralytic— “I tell you:
get up, take your mat, and go home.” Immediately he got up, took the mat,
and went out in front of everyone. As a result, they were all astounded and
gave glory to God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”
Mark 2:1-12

There is so much to glean from this story in Mark. We see how this man was forgiven of his sins, how he was healed, how the scribes and pharisees doubted Jesus, and how Jesus was teaching and working miracles. But for today, let's take a different approach and look at the friends.

Today is the day! The 2021 Simplified Planners launch! Simplified Planners are my favorite planners for many reasons and I can't wait to share why!

2021 #Simplified #Planner launches today.

This planner was built for life! The hard cover, the thick pages, it truly is meant to last. I was hard on my 2020 planner, yet it still looks brand new. I carry it everywhere with me, when I am at home it sits in my kitchen, it's been dropped and thrown, it has really had it, yet it has held up beautifully.

Thick pages! The pages of a Simplified Planner are made from Mohawk paper and are 70lbs. If you know anything about paper, you know that is amazing! No matter what pens or markers I use, they never bleed through.

2021 #Simplified #Planner launches today.

Prep work! The Simplified Planner begins with some incredible prep work. Emily Ley, the creator of Simplified, walks you through setting up your year step by step. She walks you through routines, encourages you to create a bucket list, and much more.

Two editions to choose from! Whether you want a daily view or a weekly view, Simplified has both! Simplified weekly planners are hard bound, like a book. Each month has a monthly view, then your weekly view. Simplified daily planners have a hard cover as well, however the binding is wire, which I love! Dailies have your monthly view then each day has its own page (with the exception of Saturday and Sunday sharing).

2021 #Simplified #Planner launches today.

Note pages, stickers, and pockets! Both daily and weekly editions have note pages for jotting down important info, a staple grocery list, or whatever you might need. Both editions also have a pocket in the front for keeping important papers, receipts, or a picture of your family! Both editions also come with a page of stickers, perfect for adding a pop to your planning.

Options and matching accessories! Simplified Planners come in 6 different cover options. This year there is Happy Floral, the signature Happy Stripe, Gold Bee, Pink Pinstripe, Pineapple Crest, and Blue Trellis. They are all gorgeous! Plus, each cover has matching accessories like notebooks and page markers. You can get other matching accessories such as a pencil bags, planner pouches, pens, and more. So go all out matchy matchy or mix and match your faves.

2021 #Simplified #Planner launches today.

Teaching videos! When you purchase a Simplified Planner, you are also getting a coach! Each month you will get a teaching video in your email inbox from Emily. She will help you use your planner to the max.

As you can see, Simplified Planner is an amazing planner. It is well worth every single penny. You will love simplifying and organizing your life and schedule with Simplified Planner.
