"Oh lord, please light the fire,
That once burned bright and clean.
Replace the lamp of my first love,
That burns with holy fear."
(Oh Lord, Your beautiful)
My prayers have been simple lately, "Jesus, set my heart aflame for You." Everyday, all day, this is where I desire my heart to be. There are so many distractions and things in life that can take our attention and focus, but only Jesus can truly capture and ignite the heart! If you find yourself in a place of boredom and apathy, my encouragement for you is to get that lamp aflame again. The apostle Paul says that when we are baptized into Christ, we have then put on Christ Jesus. This is the Christian lifestyle. My agenda is now different. The way I view my world is now completely different. My heart is only given over to one Master, not a multitude.
The question is, are we willing to proceed in life without His presence? Are you willing to settle for religion, rather than transformation? Let your first love, be the way you always love.
