Something to agree on

Everyday you're alive, 
You can do more than just survive. 
Appreciate the blessings that arrive 
Disguised as ordinary human beings. 
Repair your heart connection 
So you can defeat 
Inner insurrection 
That tries to overthrow 
Genuine affection.

I've never enjoyed insulting people. 
To belittle someone would hurt me. 
I don't mind people disagreeing with me. 
Life would be boring if nobody ever did.

My real fight isn't with other people, 
But with my own fears and insecurities.
I find no need to berate 
Anybody at all. 
I agree about something with anyone 
Living anywhere on this planet.  
I love to find it and celebrate it 
Together with them!
That's union -- heart to heart communion. 
How exciting, common ground's been found!
"Me too, me too, that's how I feel! 
Our disagreement's not that big a deal." 
By fighting each other, 
We've been fighting windmills. 

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 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 in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
