Fan The Flame!

The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled – Plutarch –

I like this quote.  I woke up this morning discouraged by the well intended advice I had received from friends at church last night.  I prayed about it as well as the situation I am battling with and the Lord comforted me and encouraged me and led me in the direction He had for me for today and now I feel much better.  I don’t know what next year holds for me,nor next month, next week, or even tomorrow . . . but I know I am in step with Him and that in Christ, I am a vessel He has filled to use for His purpose and that the passion or fire within me was placed there by Him.  By listening and following Him, it will be kindled.  Praise Him at all times and in all places.  He is good.

  1. Martha you are in my prayers for what the Lord is bringing you through. You are right God is good and His plans for you are for a hope and a future. Take courage my sister, He is going to use all of this to your benefit and His glory, as He is beginning to do by your faithfulness in your post today. I’m standing with you, you are not alone.

  2. He also asks us to wait…on the Lord. Amen!


  3. Amen, indeed! Even when I mess up, don’t listen, misunderstand His message, He STILL uses my mess and blesses me through my mistakes for the good!
