Burn in me a fire that won’t burn out
A fire that I can’t hold in
A fire that sparks light- producing heat of intensity and everlasting life.
I don’t fear the burning within me
The Bible calls it the Holy Ghost
Third one of the Trinity
Third person of the Godhead
The first person revealed in scripture
He’s many things, so I’ll call him, “Helper.”
He keeps God’s word in my heart
His fire gives me strength
It’s fierce, acute, and soul searching
I am the candle and He is the flame of light bursting through me and all around me.
The fire is burning everything that isn’t like him
I will offer up a sweet fragrance.
Like prophet Jeremiah
I can’t keep quiet
Although people try to muzzle my mouth shut
Stomp out my confidence
Stifle my gifting, but they’ll never take him from me.
I will burn with flames of light to light the path for others.
I will burn with flames of His love to share with others
I will burn with flames of righteousness. I am His and He is mine.
I will burn with flames of passion
He suffered death, life and resurrection for all.
God’s passion is light
He’ll light my way
He’ll continue to burn, burn, burn, burn into my soul
With every passing day, I’ll give Him praise
For this precious Gift
