“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?
