A guide to gladness?

The human heart isn’t the best guide. It can lead us astray. Often instead of following our heart, we need to fix it and align it with truth,

There’s an often-ignored lighthouse in the human heart that can direct us to inner peace and healing. It’s called conscience. To follow my conscience, I frequently have to contradict my desires and feelings.

It not easy to have an accurate opinion of yourself. Conscience-following introspection requires great courage, honesty, and humility. It’s easier to let troubling thoughts, feelings, desires, abd behaviors run on the track of habit, than to lay a better track.

If you take the inner view, you can look and see what’s truly happening in your heart. Many thoughts that come to your mind aren’t your own unless you choose to own them. Instead, you can choose to resist them.

Your indifference often prevents the living Jesus from make a difference in your life. It quenches the Holy Spirit. If you feel a need for a change of scenery, turn away from self-focus and look into Jesus.

Revival is when Christian spectators who are sitting on the spiritual sidelines become passionate disciples of the living Jesus. Will you surrender your will and your life to Him?

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!
