Fishing within for positive thoughts

We all have healthy, uplifting, and creative thoughts. However, if we don’t begin to explore and express them, we remain mostly unaware of them. Search for the good things in your mind.

Life fish in a river, hope-filled thoughts flow unnoticed, below the surface of your mind. Bad thoughts will jump out at you, but often you have to patiently fish for good thoughts. Bait your hook for hope!

Find ideas that stir your soul and fill you with hope. Keep them in your awareness and you’ll overflow with amazement and gratitude.

Look beyond problems and pain. Don’t let them drown out your awareness of the good things in your life.

As humans, we don’t have to obey our feelings or desires. We can choose to resist and overcome them.

Listening to your conscience is a courageous step toward self-awareness. It tells you healing truth, even when you don’t want to hear it.

Become more aware of love. “Love is love,” yet it’s not sex. Love is humility, honesty, self-control, purity, apology, sacrifice, (and even kindness toward your enemies).

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.
