When life gets stale

When your life gets stale, set your sail to catch an encouraging fresh wind. Love unexpressed gets stale & molds. Give out some kindness today!

Think refreshing thoughts; reject depressing ones. Make hope your heartbeat! Negativity will give your heart a beating and discourage you.

Life is beautiful. If you don’t take time to admire the view, you’ll miss out.

Find and appreciate the good in people. Don’t let the bad distract you. A greasy, torn dollar bill and a fresh, clean one, both have the same value. Same with people.

Kindness refreshes and revives both the person who gives it and the one who receives it. Having a negative opinion about certain people, is no reason to be unkind to them. Our self-crafted ethics often overlook the needs and rights of other people.

People who turn up the volume of their conscience and do what it says, soon align with one another. The intuition in your gut that we call conscience, is often the voice of God. People’s behaviors and words reveal whether they are ignoring or obeying their conscience.

When you’re secure in your beliefs, you feel no desire or need to insult people. Many people seem to have lost the ability to have strong opinions without being rude. (America seems to be full of insulticide, trying to kill people with words. Very sad.) The idea that “truth is what my party says and falsehood is what the other party says,” is a great threat to democracy.

We often fail to “take pride” and put humility in its place. Instead we let pride take control of us.

Try this:
1) Pray, “Speak, Lord,”
2) Listen,
3) Write down what He tells you.

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
