catch fire

We've had so many fun campfires on our beloved Oregon beaches over the years. I love hearing the waves crash while gathering around a warm fire with beautiful friends, laughter, fish tacos and 'smores. 

The words "catch fire" have been on my heart all summer long. You know when you just can't escape something and it pops up in front of you everywhere you turn? "Fire" has been that word for me for months. I even read a couple of books over the summer that peaked my interest because the title contained the word "fire". 

What I'm finding is that this fire that I am craving so much is the burning fire of the Holy Spirit. I'm desiring more of the Spirit of God. I'm longing for His power to fill me. For Him to overcome me and empower me to live out this life in a way that shines the light of Jesus. Ever brighter, Lord.  I want a fire deep into my bones. And I'm declaring it today because my God says that He gives His Spirit without measure. Do you want some of that fire for yourself? Are you hungry for more? Just ask.

Can you feel it, friends? 

God is up to something! He is sparking the hearts of his children and He desires for us to live our lives as a raging wildfire for Him. Filled with His love. Filled with His light. Filled with His power. 

Let's proclaim Jesus! Let's be light in the darkness. Let's light the world because we are reflecting the light of Christ. Let's catch fire.

 

We call out to dry bones
Come alive, come alive
We call out to dead hearts
Come alive, come alive
Up out of the ashes
Let us see an army rise
We call out to dry bones, come alive
God of endless mercy
God of unrelenting love
Rescue every daughter
Bring us back the wayward son
And by your Spirit breathe upon them
Show the world that you alone can save
You alone can save
