"FAN THE FLAME" FRIDAY - Possibility

But far inside, a flicker of flame
A wish, a hope we can scarcely name,
Glows like an ember of deep desire
Just waiting to be swept into a blazing fire.

With separate twigs to start the fire
You light the spark of our desire,
And fan a flame we cannot start
And plant Your Spirit within our hearts.

Lead us, guide us, show us Your way
Give us inspiration on each and every day,
Expand our horizons, help us to proclaim
The wondrous glory of Your precious name!

I thought I would start a new weekly post called, "Fan the Flame" Friday.

It will be "short and sweet" (kinda like me...)

Just a word or a phrase, a sentence or a question...just a little something to "fan the flame" of your creativity!

Today's word: possibility

"Jesus looked at them intently and said, 'Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.' " (Mark 10:27)

What's your impossible possibility...

Let me know what you think!!

All praise to our God who turns the impossible into "Him-possible!"

“This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you…For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” (2 Timothy 1:6-7)

  1. Hi Sharon,

    Lovely poem to fan the flames. God is the God of possibilities.

    Have a wonderful weekend.


  2. You're amazing! That was quite profound. ...possibility...hmmm...

    yes, He is My Possibility...everything becomes possible, if He wills it...there are no NOs, only Yeses with Him.

  3. Love the verse...

    My "impossible" was a prodigal that had to go down to the deepest pit to start to climb back up...the Lord said it would happen...and while others said my prodigal would never change and always be like he was...God has proved them the possibilities are endless...

  4. My "impossible" IS a prodigal that is currently in a dark and deep pit. Both your encouraging words, Sharon, and comment by Karen is such a balm to my soul. It is a humanly impossible situation at this point but God says it's possible so I am going to choose to believe God instead of "leaning on my own understanding" as to the outcome of our situation.


"So [I] have been greatly encouraged in the midst of [my] troubles and suffering, dear brothers and sisters, because you have remained strong in your faith. It gives [me] new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord. How [I] thank God for you!" (1 Thessalonians 3:7-9)

Thanks for your comments - it is such a joy to be sharing my journey with friends like YOU!
