Jesus gave me a heart transplant

A fresh start
Without a new heart
Will still dart
Down old paths.

You can’t mend a
With a mental
Many who are smart
Are inwardly torn apart,
But Jesus replaced
My shattered stone heart
With His healing love.

Now Jesus reveals
Light that thrills
And fills
My heart
With joy.

Jesus fills my life
And my mind
With adventures
Greater than any
I could find
On my own.

Inviting Christ to live in me and take over the control of my life has impacted me vastly more than anything else. Christ’s “Advent” happened to me the moment He entered my heart to rule, reign, and remain! Jesus is my Lord and Master.

Jesus cleared my conscience and deleted the load of guilt that pressed on my heart like a weighted quilt. Now I soar with Him. Jesus continually clears out my confusion and produces peace within me.

To make room for Jesus clear out what’s crowding Him out. “Prepare the way of the Lord.”

Sin clouds what’s clear. Aligning our thoughts and behaviors with God clears what’s cloudy.

The more I unclutter
The more I hear
Jesus utter
Words that make
My heart flutter.

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!
