See more with clear vision

If your inner light is dimmed, you can’t see clearly, even on the brightest day. Search for light and truth, not self-protection.

If you won’t see the other person’s side, you miss out on some of the truth. It’s easy to be deceived. If you think you can’t be, you already are. When you lose the idea of pride, life will be a smoother ride.

It's easy to blame
And call someone a name
As if life's a game
And the goal's to maim.

Your perception of someone is never one hundred percent correct. Avoid both worshipping or hating people. Love finds the best in people, spotlights it, and draws it out of them. 

Words matter. They can shatter people or they can scatter kindness and hope. Be courageously kind without discrimination. Live, not to evaluate people, but to be kind to them.

The living Jesus gives internal nudges to move you beyond your grudges. When Jesus calls you to step away from your comfort zone, zone out and follow Him! I find the best self-care to be forgetting about me and focusing on the risen Jesus.

I love to be around people who sparkle with Jesus, like water sparkles in sunlight. You’re never off of God’s radar, even when you think you are. Keeping your heart shutdown is to risk being stuck the way you are.

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
