Who can I trust with my heart?

Your heart can be
Bitter or bright.
If you want it to shine,
Bring it to the light.

Discover what causes your heart to soar. Avoid what causes it to snore.

Who can I trust with my heart? Everyone! I don’t need to hide it from anyone because it’s protected from within by my awareness of God’s love.

A free heart, when allowed to come into the light, will dance and rejoice. A jailed heart, kept under lock and key, is usually sad.

It’s lonely to have an unconnected heart. Superficial relationships just don’t cut it.

There is much in life that is invisible to the eye and inaccessible to the analytical mind. It’s only available to an open, humble heart.

Heart revealing is risky but it’s the path to heart healing. Heart sealing only hides your pain from others, but not from yourself. To hide your heart in the cellar of your psyche is a fearful response, not a courageous one.

Keeping your heart closed and shut down to protect it, is like keeping your car constantly locked in the garage, to protect it. To hide your heart in the cellar of your psyche is a fearful response, not a courageous one.

Much that has become embedded in our thoughts is deceptive and debilitating, but without discernment we submit to it. The ego says, “I am here to save the day. “The heart , “Here I am to say I care.”

When the heart
Is allowed to harden,
It can no longer flow
With arteries of love.

When your mind
Or your heart
Shuts the other one down,
Life’s becomes unsound.

Our mind helps us be fair.
Our heart helps us be kind.
To get along
We need both.

Logic without love
Means little compassion
Is perceived. 
But love without logic
Is easily deceived.

Our society
Wants us to see
Our desires as truth
But our conscience
As fiction.

The pure in Spirit
Become aware of
God’s voice
And clearly hear it.

God’s inner sights
And spiritual sounds
Keep life’s drama
From tossing me
Around.

When preachers try to proclaim theology that hasn’t deeply impacted their life, it doesn’t impact their sermon hearers either.

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
