FIRE OF GOD

Photo by Brent Purcell

This picture was emailed to me this morning and I have thought about it all day. I am so drawn to it. If we were burning and on fire for God people WOULD be drawn to us! People light fires for warmth or beauty - how many people do you know need warmth in places that have grown cold and need beauty where only ashes remain? He wants to do that through us. Oh, how I long to burn brightly for my Savior. I want to be so ignited that others are drawn to me without me speaking a word. I want His love, His presence, His peace to radiate from me.

The song that has accompanied this picture in my mind all day:

Start A Fire

Verse:
Start a fire in me, let the flames run free
Burn away the dross, Holy fire of God

Chorus:
So let it begin, let it be new
Let me be used for Your sake
Giving glory to Your name
I can live, knowing that You
You reside in my heart
O Lord you are a fire, fire of God

Be blessed, be ignited...BURN!!!
