I sat in my brother and sister in laws church and watched the young girls and their counselors worship.
I read the banner hanging up on the side "Fired Up".
I looked again at the faces up front.
There was not too much fire or passion burning. In fact, most of them, including the mentors looked as though they would rather be anywhere other then up there. Worshipping.
I looked at myself and felt the irony as well.
I can say the words, I can be where I need to be, but am I fired up?
Do I want to be in the front worshipping? Putting worship and quality time with Him first?
Sadly, no. My Bible study lessons get shoved to the end of the long to do lists. My prayers are short and hurried.
I feel that instead of one great big fire for Him, I have a whole bunch of lighters running out of fluid because I am fueling them with anything but the Word.
I need to stop dousing the flame in lighter fluid for a quick rush and work on stacking the wood just right and adding the right amount consistently to keep the fire burning steady and hot. I need to not let the embers turn to cold ashes.
How about you? Do you let your ashes burn out? How do you keep the fire for Him burning steady.
Linking up with Michelle at Graceful once again... please join me over there!
