31 Days Button

Thank you for visiting Fan the Flame!

I’m humbly treading the hallowed ground of the Heart of God for the 31 days of October.  First we look deep into the Beauty of His heart, shown through God the Father and His Son Jesus, then, we peer into the fragile and yet powerful role of our own hearts as we seek His and learn to live it in this world.  To read the entire series go{here} 31 Days to His Heart.

May YOU be blessed with a touch of Him TODAY…He who desires and is Fully Worthy of ALL of our hearts!

 

John 10:10

10The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

John 14:23

23Jesus answered him, "If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.

Isaiah 40:11

He will tend his flock like a shepherd;
he will gather the lambs in his arms;
he will carry them in his bosom,
   and gently lead those that are with young.

Deuteronomy 33:12

   "The beloved of the LORD dwells in safety.The High God[h] surrounds him all day long,
   and dwells between his shoulders."

Catch {Caught up in Him}…

Because he came and offered life.  Because He held nothing back and poured out every bit of infinite heart…Because He wants me as His very own and because He would stop at nothing and didn’t stop even at the most humiliating death and all the while it was a death held to by love and the incredible God-sized-hearted dream of restoring all mankind to Himself…

I am caught.  Caught up in love and grace and hope and peace and all that any little girl would want her knight in shining armor to bring.  I am caught with a never-stopping, never-giving-up, relentless and fully able to do more than wildest dreams kind of love.

And this love is Home.  It catches me and draws me safely, fully in and it is the sweetest of homes that every girl would wish to have.  There is the Sunshine of His face, the love and life of eternity, the never-ending flow of dreams that spring from the Divine Heart…His biggest dream to make this Home for me and all of His children and for that dream gives birth to all of the others…

He was captured by the will of God and though He was God He was caught, infinitely bound to the kind of love that makes the broken whole and heals the diseased and wipes away tears and so in His being caught this way and living a life I could not live and dying a death I won’t have to die…

…I am caught and held forever and Home.  And that, well, that tastes infinitely sweet and my heart knows there is no better hands to hold and arms to enfold and so I purpose this life to be one that is ever and always caught like this…

…That my life might sing the sweet song of such an embracePrincess {6ish minutes;}

Praying His Heart

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for making the way to Home.  Thank You for making Home and being caught forever possible.  Thank you that Your kind of catching is being found and given all that the wandering could never bring.  Thank you that Your heart is the Father’s and in the light of Your sacrificial love I can live, bask, receive, be showered upon so that deepest desire will ALWAYS be met and never run dry…

Thank You.  Thank You.  Thank You.

In You. In You. In You.

I’m Home. I’m Home.  I’m Home.

Amen
