Marsh Madness

O, the glorious value
And amazing treasure
Of every human being,
Even when it’s unseen
And unappreciated.
Even people society rejects
Contain the image of God
Buried beneath their brokenness,
Yet still present in their pain.
Love finds, beholds, and respects
The Creator’s work and reflection,
No matter how dim,
No matter how faint.
March through the marshes
That malign people.
Search for and release
The God-given treasures
Trapped within them
And lives will be incredibly enriched,
Theirs and yours!

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!
