Poems that point the way to peace

Inner peace
Is release
From anxiety.

Troublesome times
Call for a peaceful heart.
A peaceful heart comes from
The inner presence
Of the risen Jesus,
Not from current events.

Makes time
Feel like
But Christ’s
Inner peace
Makes anxiety

The risen Jesus
Can shift the gears
In your heart
And drive out
All the fears
That have
Stalked you
For years
As He steers
You to peace.

Let the living Jesus
Continually do
Whatever He wants to
Both in and through you.

Be about
Hanging out
With people who
Are all about
Humbly interacting
With Jesus.

Spread hope.
Be a mouthpiece
Of Christ’s presence
And peace.

Forgive like Jesus.
With bitterness.

Release your sin
And dare to begin
To live every day in
The peace of Christ.

The risen Jesus
Is the open door
To life and peace,
But if your heart’s
Shut down
You won’t want
To enter in.

Christianity’s not about being good.
It’s about removing everything
From your mind and heart
That’s in any way hindering
Christ’s grace and goodness
From freely flowing
In and through you.

Don’t trust the Universe. Trust the Creator of the Universe, the living Jesus Christ. See John 1:1-3.

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!
