Make yourself glad again!

The more you
Think, do, and speak
Things that are bad
(Even if you sneak)
The harder it is
To be glad.

Make your thoughts
Gladwrap for your mind;
Your words and deeds
Gladwrap for sad people

Make yourself glad again. Remember what you’re grateful for! Take the time to make choices that you’ll be glad to remember!

Think, speak, and do what makes you glad, not just in the moment, but also makes you look back from tomorrow and the future with gladness.

Unregulated thoughts, feelings, and desires disrupt the human psyche and hinder much gladness. Make inner peace the blueprint for your life. If something doesn’t align with the blueprint, don’t think, speak, or do it!

Self-focus is self-imprisonment. Self-forgetfulness is freedom from self-torment.

Through thick and thin,
No matter the condition I’m in,
The risen Jesus makes me glad
To be alive.

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!
