Refreshing inner rivers

When you ask Jesus
To enter your heart
And lay down your life
To His full control
Refreshing rivers 
Start to freely flow
From deep within you
Streaming awareness
And revelations,
Inner reality
Beyond your belief.

I move my mouth
And a river
Of unknown words
Creatively flows
From deep inside me
Washing my being
With awe and delight
And with amazing
Connection to God.
Flow on word river,
Such a beautiful
Gift from my Father
Keeping me aware
Of His glorious
Presence and power.

God wants you to be
His conveyer belt
Always flowing with
The fruit of the Spirit
Wherever you go
And with whomever
You encounter.

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!
