I’m not my feelings or desires

Our thoughts, feelings, and desires are skewed to varying degrees. We need to adjust them to our conscience, not vise versa.

What feels good is often harmful. Desiring something doesn’t make it right. In the battle between conscience and desire, we too often let desire win.

My feelings and desires don’t define me. I prefer to define my feelings and desires and sort out the good ones from the bad ones.

I’m not my feelings,
Or my desires.
I’m who chooses
To accept
Or reject
Them.

Our desires
Need to
Follow behind
Our mind.
Logic is more accurate
Than feelings.

Peace of thought doesn’t just happen. It involves silencing the anxious and tormenting ones.

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
