High octane hope.

If you make your desires and feelings your fuel, they’ll burn up your engine. Run your mind and heart on premium fuel. Fuel your heart with high octane hope.

Don’t just fill up with anything that comes along. Some things that we think we’re being fueled by, we’re actually being fooled by.

Self-deception is common. Without wisdom and courage it’s easy to deceive ourselves into using destructive fuels.

Try not to become a casualty of your own thinking and emotions. Examine them before they sear your conscience. Feelings and desires are the great deceivers of humanity.

Anybody can be fooled and everybody is to some degree. Nobody’s opinions are fully aligned with truth. he refusal to acknowledge something doesn’t mean it isn’t true.

Desensitized hearts overlook much of life’s simple pleasures–it’s high octane fuel. Desire-driven lives tend to descend into decadence. When compassion is shut down and the conscience ignored, the human mind can think and advocate many messed up things. T

God is incomprehensible, beyond understanding, yet accessible to any human heart. Jesus continually fuels me with His presence.

Give the gift
Of an encouraging lift.
Help someone shift
From sadness to joy.

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
