Life is a journey, not a parking garage

Life is designed to be travel — a journey to wisdom. It was never intended to be a parking garage. The way you live is up to you. You have the power to use your life for love or hate, happiness or sadness, right or wrong.

Too many people speed up when they’re on the wrong road, when turning around would be much more effective. If you say you’re going one direction, but you’re walking the opposite direction, you’re not fooling anybody. Why not be honest?

Here’s an honest statement: When public profanity is approved but public prayer is taboo, things are backwards. Talking to God is a start. Listening to and obeying Him completes the circuit and let’s the Spirit freely flow. Then you can journey even closer to Christ.

It does little good to download the Bible onto a devise, if you don’t download it into your heart and apply it in your daily life. Try it.

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
