Heart of Fire

But if I say, 
“I will not mention him or 
speak any more in his name,” 
his word is in my heart like a fire, 
a fire shut up in my bones. 
I am weary of holding it in; 
indeed, 
I cannot.

Jeremiah 20:9

This verse took hold of me this past week, friends and I realized how accurately
 it describes this last year of writing for me. 
How this prophet lacked popularity, but knew ultimately, it did not matter,
that He could do nothing less than what He was called to do.
Oh, can’t you feel Him burning from within, consuming you with
 His passion, love and desire.
We who are called just cannot contain these words He births within us, 
anymore than Jeremiah could, in His day.
Go forth, friends and let Him spill right out of you,
 for in this you will be ignited, burning for Him and shining 
His light in the unique way He has called forth for you! 
Indeed, you can do no less!

May you be blessed in this heart of fire, Christ in you!
