Set a Fire

Just got back from a great service at my church.  I take away somethings here and there from sermons and worship but i felt tonight that it inspired me to contine on the path God has set out for me..  United Pursuit Band wrote a song called Set a Fire and we've been singing it the past few weeks at  church.  Tonight as I put my distractions in the nursery  Ibegan to really hear the lyrics of this song.

 No place I'd rather be than here in Your love,
 So set a fire down in my soul that I can't contain that I can't control I want more of You God.
How simple yet how full His voice to my calling.  I've known my passion, my love, the reason I stay awake some nights is for the lost souls of children that come to church in hopes of finding the great love of Jesus.  I've never been more passionate about anything like this before, it puts me on the edge of my seat so many times just to see these little lives change and God enter their world.  Children's ministry is what sets a fire down in my soul.  I pray God uses me however He wants and I wait in anticipation for his calling each day, some days more obvious and purposful than others.  As i sat in service tonight singing these few lyrics over and over again I am again set on fire deeper with my deisire to serve, to minister and to love like He loves.  I want more of God's love, His direction and His will for my life.  I want to feel that fire each day and be more aware to be in constant need of God's hand among it all.  Life with two kids, a husband, a home, a church my calling become confused, muddy and my fire seems dim, almost hopeless at times.  This song is a great reminder to me to keep that fire burning in my soul and keep going after the one who makes all things possible. 

The sermon was just added words from God to me.  While I think i'll save that post for another day,  hopefully sooner rather than later it brings a lot of what i've been dealing with in my life to truth.  The power of words and how much words really do matter!
