Are You In A Mess?

It doesn’t matter what you think or feel or if you live life with a thrill.  What matters is reality.  A life aligned with your own opinions and feelings will wilt and wallow in messy confusion.  A life aligned with honesty, truth, humility, and reality will soar on the winds of love.

A car must align itself with the road or it will crash or get stuck.  It can’t go any way it (or its driver) wants to go.  Humans are the same.  They often ignore the roads and cut across the countryside tossed to and fro and wondering why their life is so difficult.  People are not ATVs.  They need a road.

Roads have boundaries and rules, but they free us up to safely travel far and fast.  Getting off the road gets you nowhere fast.

Stuck?  Bogged down in life?  Discouraged?

Perhaps you are off the road.  Maybe you are cutting through fields and woods and over hills and don’t even realize it.

There is a road to a peaceful, fulfilling, effective life — real success.  Why not get on the road again?

Here’s a quotation for you:  “I am the way, the truth, and the life . . .”  –Jesus  Perhaps you should let Him take the wheel of your life and steer you clear of the mess you’re in.

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 co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We 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 called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @
