Sunday Series: Forest Fire


"You were looking for a tea light, and I will always be a forest fire."

When I saw the above lyrics, my first thought was how relevant they are to my life.  My sorority sisters used to always say that I was single because I was just too much, and no one really knew how to handle me.  (And it was meant in the nicest way possible.  Y'all read my blog, you know I can be a handful!)

But the more I thought about them, they really hit home to me and my relationship with Christ.  When I found a relationship with God, I was at such a broken point in my life.  But I left that weekend feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and on fire for God.  I was quick to speak of my experience and to spread the gospel.  However, that faded out.  I became a little more reserved in my beliefs, and I don't believe that's what I was called to do.

I am an intense person.  I'm hard on myself, and I'm often hard on people around me without meaning to be.  (I promise I just want the best for everyone.)  Knowing that about myself, my goal for this week is to be intense and on fire for Christ like a forest fire.  Life is too short to be a tea light.

Will you join me?

God bless,

SS

  1. Wow, that lyric is really powerful. I know what you mean about being an intense person - I am one, too! One thing I've found is that (like you're doing) sometimes you have to choose areas of your life to amplify and others to tone down just the tiniest bit. Thanks for sharing!

    1. It's from the song "Dandelion" - I wasn't a huge fan of the song, but you're right, the lyric is super powerful! You are so right about that :) Thanks for stopping by... I hope you have a great week :)

  4. That is a really powerful lyric! So I agree I am kinda in a rut in my faith right now. Not that my faith has changed just I guess lost its forrest fire quality. I am going to try this next week to be on fire! Thanks for the reminder! :)

    Love Always,
