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 question (or few)…just a little something to "fan the flame" of your creativity!
And, to further fan those faith-filled flames (try saying that 10 times in a row!) – I'm adding my favorite devotional from the week!
Today's word: refine
What does the word refine mean to you?
Why does God want to refine us?
What is God using in your life to refine you?
"'I will bring that group through the fire and make them pure. I will refine them like silver and purify them like gold.'" (Zechariah 13:9, NLT)
Let me know what you think!!
DEVOTIONAL OF THE WEEK:
"What a chain of graces could overflow from tribulation. It is in the furnace that faith is tested, patience is tried, and where all those rich virtues are developed that make up Christian character. It is while they are passing through deep waters that God shows how close He can come to His praying, believing saints."
*Thank You for drawing close to us when we need You most.
"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)
