Welcome to "Fan the Flame" Friday.
This is a weekly post that will be "short and sweet" (kinda like me...)
Just a word and a phrase, a sentence or a question...just a little something to "fan the flame" of your creativity!
Today's word: freedom
What does the word freedom mean to you?
What does freedom in Christ mean to you?
How is God's freedom different than the world's?
Let me know what you think!!
"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)
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 new day,
Expand our horizons, help us to proclaim
The wondrous glory of Your precious name!
