Story of the day: Kindled inside you
On the prairies of the Midwest, a grass fire can be a good thing.
“To ask whether a prairie needs fire is to wonder whether it needs water,” says Cindy Schreuder. “Burns stimulate the growth of grasses and forbs, return nutrients to the soil, expose seed beds to the sun and suppress invading trees and shrubs.”
In the same way, God’s consuming fire brings new life when we willingly let him burn the fields of our hearts. [Cindy Schreduer]
Quote of the day: Sue Monk Kidd
In awakening to God there is always a moment of choice, a time to say an absolute yes, to commit yourself as best you can to the life of God that is kindled inside you. The experience demands it. And there will likely be a need for a reaffirmation of that choice numerous times as we awaken to God. We are spasmodic, fickle creatures who must be brought back again and again to our journey.
Bible verse of the day: Hebrews 12:29
“for indeed our God is a consuming fire.”
Dear Heavenly Father,
There is a fire that burns deep inside of me that wants to spread. I pray that my fire continues to burn as You light it each and every day. I am grateful to serve You and to do all that you have gifted me to do. I pray for those whose light may have been dimmed for whatever reason, and I pray that they too can find Your never ending spark to ignite their lowly flame. I thank You that You never change and that I can always count on You to be my Rock. Thank You for watching out for me and always knowing what is best for me and my life. I love You and thank You for this blessed day!
In Jesus Name I pray,
