The sea in me

The human mind
Is beachfront property
With waves of thought
Continually coming ashore.

Every mind is an island
Surrounded within
By a beautiful
Yet dangerous
Sea of thoughts.

Catch the brainwaves
Of hope.
Refuse to tiptoe
In mental undertow.

When waves
Of tormenting thoughts
Assail you,
Dock your sailing ship
In God.

God waves
So we can see
And welcome Him
To bathe the beaches
In our mind.

Let the high tide
Fill you with God’s hope
And the low tide
Wash away your chains.

Invite God
To come ashore
And He’ll turn
Your inner bored walk
Into unspeakable 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 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!
