Words in my heart are my wake-up call

I wake up in the morning and Jesus puts words in my heart. I respond by passively pondering and the words come together as individual phrases (and sometimes as poems). These are the words that manifested in my heart this morning when I first woke up: (The process sometimes continues throughout the day.)

“To abide in Christ is to stay ever focused on Him.”

“True Christ-followers keep their focus and awareness stayed on Jesus, not on self.”

“In order to abide
In Christ
Let your heart reside
Ever in awe of
His presence inside.
Continually confide
In Jesus as your guide
And never hide
Or set Him aside.
Always ride
His Spirit-flowing tide
Far and wide.”

Here are the words that danced together in my heart yesterday:

“Attune your heart
To Christ’s tune
Let Him consume
Your time and attention.”

“Many people spend life
Attuned to their desires
And never discovers
That joy requires
We delight in
What inspires
Hope and kindness”.

“If you’re not aware of Jesus actively working inside of you, He may not be in there.

“When Christ-followers gather and intentionally attune to Jesus, they discover that they’re in tune with one another.”

“The ‘go to church’ Bible verse? Some people think Hebrews 10:25 requires church attendance. I think it means to spiritually interact with other Christians and actively help each other follow and obey the living Jesus.”

“When I read the New Testament, I don’t see a ‘thing’ — an organization or religious institution. Instead, I see the members body of Christ fulfilling the 50+ NT ‘one another’ commands. The body of Christ in the New Testament is organic and Spirit-led. There is oversight in the meetings by the ‘overseers’ but not human control and programming. We can assemble ourselves together without ‘a form of godliness’ that too often ‘denies the power thereof.'”

“10 sins American culture embraces and even celebrates:

  • Self-focus
  • Unrestrained sexual desire
  • Abortion
  • Divorce
  • Drunkenness
  • Dishonesty
  • Lust for wealth
  • Verbal attacks
  • Glorifying violence
  • Rebellion against authority”

“Surrounding yourself, family, and neighbors with decorations of darkness, death, and evil is probably detrimental to your mental health. Fully embrace and live in God’s Light!”

When life looks backwards, let the ever-living Jesus turn you around.

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!
