More than self-driving cars, the world needs Christ-driven people.

More than self-driving cars, the world needs Christ-driven people.

If you give up control
And freely roll
With the living Jesus,
You’ll be made whole.

Set your life
On Christ-control
And let the living Jesus
Drive you to His goal.

Pain becomes gain
When it motivates you
To connect
Heart to heart
With God.

The Serenity Prayer is famous. Here’s my Wisdom Prayer: Lord, grant me the wisdom to accept thoughts from You, the courage to reject thoughts that aren’t from You, and the serenity to know the difference.

Monitor the thought traffic in your mind. Unfriend and block the thoughts that try to take you in harmful directions. If you won’t control your thoughts, feelings, and desires, any appearance that you’re in control is only an illusion.

Any thought you have about forgiving people is from God. Forgiveness breaks the pain chain and sets you free from the tormenting desire to get even. It also breaks your emotional attachment to the people who’ve caused you pain.

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!
