I thought this was really beautiful and encouraging. It reminds me of a word God whispered to me; His love for me/us is red hot. I absolutely love red things now! He walks us through the fire/difficult times to burn off all the impurities, to refine and purify us.
I burn the dross and melt the steel of all that is cold and stiff, unyielding and hard when I try them in the fires of life. When tempered just right, I bring those places out of the fire and hammer them into symmetry. Balanced just right, boundaries are stretched for a greater expanse. I complete that which has been forged by plunging it into the cool refreshing waters of the Holy Spirit.
Generations are passing by fast. Build bridges from faith that will last. Not faith in empty words, but tested through walking. Being tried in the fire, not in vain empty talking. Each step you take is easier having forged a way past words that condemn. Not listening to doubt, unbelief or fear but, heeding My voice as I speak into your ear.
Dan 3:25 NKJV
“Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”
This verse has been on my heart this week. I thought if it encourages me, I hope it will encourage you, as well.
Psa 37:25 I have been young, and [now] am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
On a lighter note, Charlie e-mailed me this picture and it just tickles me!!!!
Another childhood fantasy shattered…….
