You can live by the Spirit everywhere

To “live by the Spirit”
And “not quench the Spirit”
Is to fully yield yourself
To be carried by the current
As the Spirit flows
Like inner rivers
Alive with the power
And presence of God
And blows
Like a mighty rushing wind
From deep within
Your surrendered heart.

The more you maintain control
The less you’ll be able to roll
With the flow of God’s Spirit.

Jesus is everywhere.
If you’re unaware
Of His presence
You’re missing
The essence
Of Christianity.

You can’t see Jesus
With your eye
But when you rely
On His help
With an open heart
Hope flows from
Within you.

You can’t resist God’s Spirit and be led by the Spirit at the same time. Surrender.

Let go and experience the glorious ride of the Spirit’s inner flow. Step out of the short-lived pleasure of sin and into the ongoing thrill of the Spirit’s flow!

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!
