Bubbles are distracting (and empty, too)

Bubble Voices
If you let
What's said from without
Make you doubt
What your conscience
Says within you,
It will reroute
Your life
Downhill.

Denial is an ongoing series of bubbles (designed to hide the truth). Reality continually pops them.

What we call reality is made up of electrons temporarily spinning around mostly empty space (like a bubble). They disguise themselves as something solid.

Pleasure is based on bubbles that continually burst. Joy is produced by the Spirit of Christ living within you. It never ends.

Trying to find yourself is like trying to catch and keep a bubble in your hands. It’s exhausting and frustrating, but losing yourself is service to others releases joy.

If you don’t like someone’s skin color, take it up with God. That’s a bubble that they had nothing to do with.

Church too often bubble wraps the idea of total commitment to the living Jesus, but Christ wants to burst your religious bubbles! The Bible mixed with prideful boasting creates bubbles that eventually burst.

We often don’t realize
That to choose
What defies
The will of God
Has consequences.

Life is full
Of bubble and burst,
The best and the worst.
Put your hope
In Jesus first!

Lighten your load.
Bring your burdens
To the light.
Receive fresh insight
And delight

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
