Thinking with hope & inspiration makes my day

I can’t imagine living without creative thinking. Every time I start to get discouraged, fresh, innovative ideas get in my way.

The best way to be happy is to think yourself into it. If you truly convince yourself that you’re happy, then you will be.

Thinking is life’s inner sport. Suit up! Start thinking and solve your problems. Life isn’t random, it’s rational. Find the answer to the puzzles that block your happiness. If you won’t control your mind, someone or something else will.

Think good thoughts, over and over, until they begin to continually burn in your heart. Then they will carry you to an amazing life.

Once you’ve thought about something positive and uplifting, don’t stop thinking. Thinking’s more powerful as a lifestyle than as an occasional occurrence.

Thinking is more than merely letting thoughts run thru your mind. It’s observing, analyzing, reasoning and controlling your thoughts.

Thinking that is dominated by our feelings, desires, and opinions, is seldom very accurate. When we detach our thinking from our emotions, desires, and opinions, we begin to understand more clearly.

If you won’t change your thinking, outward changes in your life won’t improve your state of mind. If you do think about life and search for positive ways to improve, you can always make your life better.

Thought patterns are addicting. The ones you are addicted to will determine the direction of your life.

An open mind considers various ideas but doesn’t accept them all. However, an unused mind accepts whatever comes its way.

Genuine thinking leads to logical conclusions, which aren’t always pleasant. That’s why it requires courage.

If you try to make people think, they’ll often think you’re up to something no good. Check out the following attempts to make people think:

When a group of people appears to be thinking the same, many of them aren’t thinking, but are merely agreeing with the crowd.

When you read a text on your phone, it didn’t originate there. Perhaps the thoughts in your brain don’t originate there either.

Jump start your thinking by trying to write statement that’s probably never been said before.

Initiating violence
Is heartless,
Demonic and cruel.
Be kind.

Napoleon Bonaparte caused many men to be blown apart. War’s not the glorious thing that it’s made out to be.

Spiritual awakening seldom comes thru institutional Christianity, but thru ordinary people who begin to listen to and obey Jesus.

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!
