Inspiration for the uninspired

Inspiration propels you forward. Excuses tie you down.

When you’re feeling uninspired, your eyes are closed to the amazing things that surround you. People who are uninspired, quickly get tired.

Focusing on problems deletes inspiration. Sincerely searching for solutions restores it.

Having the time of your life isn’t a special event. It’s 24/7/365. How you use time determines whether you’re happy or not. Boredom’s better left undone.

Live intoxicated by life,
Addicted to hope
Invigorated by joy,
Inspired by beauty.

When feelings and desires
Are allowed to rage
Like uncontained wildfires,
They incinerate
Everything that inspires.
Life gives people free will.
It doesn’t require
That you do
Whatever you desire.

If you let inspiration depart,
Before you even start
You’ll be stuck in dull routine
Like someone with a hard heart
Reluctantly pushing a heavy cart.

Inner voices
That attack your inspiration
Are parasites
Eating up your happiness.

Compromised Christianity produces uninspired Christians.

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!
