Set a Fire



“Your love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on me.” 

I do not feel this today, but I am grateful for it.  I am grateful for this underlying, deep, sense of not wanting to give up pursuing after His heart; because I know even when I don’t feel this love that this not-wanting-to-give-up is a proof that He is in my heart.  And, oh how easy it is to question whether or not He is when I fail.  I am grateful that God understands my heart better than I do. 

There are moments after I put up a new post and someone comments and I simply want to despair.  I am grateful for all the encouragement and life spoken to me through those comments.  Yet, at times, I fight feeling hypocritical because I know that I am far from where I want to be.  I want all my pieces put back together RIGHT this instant.  I think it’s this season I’m going through.  The beggar child season.  I want to be dancing and praising, yet at this moment, I feel as though I am that ragamuffin wandering the streets, looking for even a bite of life.  Just a crumb, really.  I want to tangible see Jesus.  I want to hear Him speak to me.  How I long for streams in the desert and rivers in the wilderness.  That pure, crystal water that gives abundant life, a life I once had.  When did this fire start to dim?  When did I stop believing His promises?  Yes, He’s done so much.  But, I am human.  Only human. 

So, pray with me, that He would start a fire deep within my soul.  I don’t want a smoking ember, I want that steady, love-overflowing Jesus fire.  I want more, so much more.

No place I would rather be
No place I would rather be
No place I would rather be
Than here in your love, here in your love

Set a fire down in my soul
That I can't contain that I can't control
I want more of You, God
I want more of You, God

I want more, I want more
I want more, I want more
I want more, I want more of you
Pour it out

Set a fire down in my soul
That I can't contain that I can't control
I want more of You, God
I want more of You, God

No place I would rather be
No place I would rather be
No place I would rather be
Than here in your love, here in your love

Set a fire down in my soul
That I can't contain that I can't control
I want more of You, God
I want more of You, God

I want more, I want more
I want more, I want more
I want more, I want more of you
Pour it out

Set a fire down in my soul
That I can't contain that I can't control
I want more of You, God
I want more of You, God
