Hope that will heal your hurting heart . . .

me in jungle

Hope healed my hurting heart

My heart was filled
With stinging things
Thorns and thistles,
Entangling vines,
Biting bugs, snakes and rats,
Gnawing on my soul
With torment and trauma
And inner drama
Day and night.
And then one day
I stumbled upon a spring
A fountain flowing with hope,
Showing me the Way out:
Follow the inner flow
Of love and peace;
Resist the disheartening,
Destructive, dominating desires
Driving me like demons to despair.
As I continually followed that stream,
Flowing from Christ’s interior spring,
And fought against my demons
Resisting them all along the way,
My inward jungle gradually became
A place of peace — a land of love;
A bountiful garden — a fruit-filled orchard.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
