Some astonishing thoughts

On a dark night
Look up
And be astonished
By the stars.

To be astonished by beauty, waft away in it’s wonder, refreshes the heart. Life only gets old when you’re bored with it. Watching ocean waves washes me in astonishment and so does looking at trees.

Big like an elephant or small like a flea, if you look how life’s put together, it’s astonishing! When the astonishment of being alive dies, life meanders aimlessly.

In a world where genuine, heart-felt, spontaneous happiness has become astonishing, sadness has become the norm. Be happy anyway.

A person who is wondrously astonished at nothing is bored. Revive your astonishment. Search for: Elephants Inspiring The Room book.

The human conscience is the elephant in the heart. Life goes better when we don’t ignore it.

Without astonishment
Is like punishment.
It should inspire
And set us on fire.

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!
