From ashes to flames...

Matthew 12:20
A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out.

1 Corinthians 1:7-9
Just think—you don't need a thing, you've got it all! All God's gifts are right in front of you as you wait expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive on the scene for the Finale. And not only that, but God himself is right alongside to keep you steady and on track until things are all wrapped up by Jesus. God, who got you started in this spiritual adventure, shares with us the life of his Son and our Master Jesus. He will never give up on you. Never forget that.

When we just don’t know what God is up to… we need to learn to rest in His Spirit so the flow of love & grace will impact us. The more we strive in our power, the more we seek to remain self-sufficient, the more we try to light our own fire- the worse our predicament will become. Return to the King.

In His rest is strength...power....FIRE!

Joel 2:3, 11-12
Before them fire devours, behind them a flame blazes. Before them the land is like the garden of Eden, behind them, a desert waste— Nothing escapes them.

The LORD thunders at the head of his army; his forces are beyond number, and mighty are those who obey his command. The day of the LORD is great; it is dreadful. Who can endure it?
"Even now," declares the LORD, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning."
