    I will seek that which was lost, and will bring back that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick; Ezekiel 34:16 WEBAs the tears flowed down my face, I knew they weren't mine.

    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 ESVSo there I sat in my prayer room, feeling washed up and wondering why I was there at all that day. After going through a drawn out messy divorce, I didn't go to church at ...

Keep the Fire Burning

  • Now when Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and Yahweh's glory filled the house. 2 Chronicles 7:1 WEB

    When the Israelites built the tabernacle and the altar under the guidance of Moses, God lit the fire (Lev 9:23). Then the priests were ordered to never let the flame go out. They were to put new wood on it each morning (Lev 6:12). Later, when they built the temple of Solomon, God lit that fire too, and then the priests were ordered to keep the fire burning continuously.

    God starts the fire inside of each of us when we first come to Him, but we are to keep the fire burning. You can take an ember out of a roaring fire and set it on the mantle by itself, and when it is alone, it will soon grow cold. Place it back into the fireplace with the other embers and it will glow hot again.

    Daily prayer, worship, study, hearing the word of God, and being around others that have the fire, will all help keep your inner fire burning. God started it, but we have to keep the fire burning. Don't stop. Don't give up. No one said that it would be easy. Adam and Eve lived in the garden, but everyone since then has struggled just like us. If you have never been through anything, then you don't have much to share with others. You can do this and with God's help you will make it through.

    Prayer: Father, light the fire inside of me and give me the grace to keep it burning. I welcome You into my life Lord Jesus. Shine Your love through me. Teach me all about You, I want to know every detail. Please guide my steps, open the doors that I should go through and close the doors that I should stay out of, in Your name I pray.

Barbara Miramon
Barbara Miramon What a thought provoking blog this was today! People often ask me why do you want go to church all the time?…why do you spend so much time saying prayers every morning?…now I will remember to tell them it's because I want to keep my own special ember for God burning red hot! But more importantly, it brings me inner peace in my life like nothing else does.

Mark Duell
Mark Duell Amen. Need to have those around you that are a good source of radiant heat or thermal conductivity. Problem is the church has become more like a lukewarm bottle of coke and nobody wants it. There's nothing refreshing about what the church has because she has become so much like the world. Sad to say and I'm just as much the problem as the next person.

Debbie Bible I feel pretty rough from chemo this past Tuesday, but reading, "Don't stop. Don't give up. No one said that it would be easy" and "You can do this and with God's help you will make it through", makes me feel at peace and is just what I needed. God is in control. Thanks.
