What’s streaming in your heart? Raw desire? Or Spiritual Fire?

What’s streaming in your heart?

Raw desire?  Or Spiritual Fire?

Lust and disgust?  Or love from above?

Thoughts that annoy?  Or real time joy?

Spiritual blindness?  Or lovingkindness?

What do you find flowing through your mind?

So, what’s innernet streaming in your heart?
1) Negativity, anger, worry, fear, disrespect, lust, violence, frustration?
Or 2) Hope, encouragement, love, peace, kindness, faith, goodness, joy?
What do you find flowing in your mind?
I find that #1 naturally streams in my heart and I have to work very hard at self-control to resist #1 and minimize it, because my heart easily turns to and embraces self-destructive thoughts and images.
I also find that for #2 to stream in me, I have to continually focus and refocus my heart on the good, or it will automatically turn to the bad.
The ancient prophet, Jeremiah, put it this way: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. 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 lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.
