Without inner stillness, we overlook inspiring elephants in the room

Stillness let’s
Inner quiet
Comfort the soul.
Will you?

There’s much insight in inner stillness; little in ongoing anxiety. Silence is a sweet sound that can give solace to your soul.

Restlessness and stillness never nestle up together. It’s difficult not to always want something that we don’t yet have. It’s hard not to always try to make happiness happen.

Stillness isn’t passivity. It’s inner peacefulness. Inspiring sights around us; inspiring thoughts within us, but we overlook them like elephants in the room.

When we cultivate
Inner stillness,
We begin to notice
Elephants Inspiring The Room.

Put your pain on pause. Ponder in peacefulness.

Knowledge can’t change a heart. People with hard hearts often have smart minds.

If thoughts
Are nothing
But operations
Of the brain,
Why do we act
Like they’re real?

When hope
Is fading,
Doing your best at persuading
People that you’re okay,
Means you’re not.

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!
