Playing with Fire

Today’s lesson; Fire is Hot.

Just over a week ago, I was in Church and God showed me a picture of some wax. I had no idea why, of what it was about.

Today I was trying to melt some wax with my ‘improved’ lighter, and the lighter melted and I slightly burnt my finger. I know that when my Mam reads this she will be horrified. (Please forgive me, I really wasn’t being that dangerous and no real ill consequences came).

Why is fire so tempting? I want to suggest, (though I don’t claim to be the first) that fire is like love, that fire is like God. A bit. See, fire is amazing, makes you warm, makes you excited, makes you want to get closer, to play, to be awed. But… Fire is also dangerous. Especially if you underestimate it. 

I might start to use fire in a bad way… to feel powerful maybe? Or I might leave fire unattended, scorn it’s potential to do something. Or I might forget to put more fuel on the fire, and be shocked when it goes cold.

Reading between the lines;

The Fire the that sparkles and warms

Burns those who scorn,

The Love that melts the heart must

not become lust,

The God whose compassion shines

also refines.

So don’t underestimate Fire, Don’t underestimate Love and Don’t underestimate God. Micah 1:4

Pearl: Anna

Pearl: Anna

Only a gritty life could produce such treasure.

The words again in case the picture is not clear.

Pearl

As a sun beam dances

Crisply through clear water,

So whispers He

Through His beloved daughter.

Her incandescent beauty;

The fruit of several years

Where gritty trials came,

Leaving precious souvenirs

Multitones of wisdom

Grace her precious words,

Radiant with perseverance,

Her strength is the Lord’s.

Hurdle


Weary and lonely

Yet wanting to be alone,

Itching to fly

But energy gone,

Restless for no reason,

Excitement and dread

Quarreling, Sigh

I try again to clear my head

Frustration,

I know this lead

Is not mine to carry,

Don’t give in.

I tarry at the hurdle,

Pray.

Breathe in the Sweet Pea Sun

Win back the day.

Infuse
