When the Flame is Barely a Flicker...
I'm not really sure why this even came to me this morning but I just wanted to share a little about myself. If you have had the chance to read the section about why I call this blog "Life Reignited" then you know that I began this as a way to hopefully help encourage you and me to live a life on fire for Christ.
Well, it seems as though some mornings I wake up and am continually battling back and forth in my head with who I was and who God has intended for me to be. Truth be told, it'd be really easy to not worry about being who God has intended for me to be, but just because it's easy doesn't mean its right, or worth the lack of effort. It's days like this that an inner struggle takes place and it feels like at times the flame within is a huge and roaring fire, full of passion and intensity. On the flip side of that, on the same days, sometimes even in the same hour or just mere moments later, it's like something has happened and that blazing fire is barely a flicker, maybe even just some smoldering coals.
So what happens when you are at that place and the fire needs to be stoked...? What happens when those moments seem to sneak up on you randomly...? What do you do in those moments...? What do you need in those moments...?
I ask these questions, not because I have the intentions of unveiling some profound paradigm changing revelation. Quite the opposite actually, I ask because I simply don't have any answers to these questions.
