The Fire that burns within

One would have never known the feelings that are woven so deeply within the core of my being.  I myself would have never known.  The love, the dreams, the desires, that if properly lit could set the whole world on fire.  That is… if it is carefully lit.  There is a fire that rages within, that can not be smothered.  Though one may try to smother it, the fire stays.  It keeps  its flame.  What is this, this strange fire that will not be smothered?  I feel it roar through my very veins,  setting my soul aflame.  It is fiery love that courses through my veins.  I have become the flaming star that shines on the coldest darkest nights, even during the dead of winter.  I have become a burning candle that will light a whole house through the darkest hour.  Watch my flame, see how it dances?  Praising and thanking the Mighty One who has lit me.  It is only by the All Consuming Fire I can be lit.  He is the only one who sets my soul on fire.  He is the only one who will fill me with His fiery love.

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe,  for our “God is a consuming fire.”-Hebrews 12:28-29

For You light my lamp; The LORD my God illumines my darkness.-Psalm 18:28

Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky.-Philippians 2:14-15

“No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light. “The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is bad, your body also is full of darkness. “Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness.-Luke 11:33-35

In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.-1 John 4:9-12
