About

Have you ever heard God speak to you? Have you ever felt a stirring within your soul, like the embers in a fire burning and igniting within you? Have you ever tried to smother that fire, to hold it back, only to feel a backdraft exploding within you because you just can’t hold it inside anymore?

WIN_20140115_120442 (3)That’s how I felt when the Lord spoke to me one Sunday in October, 2012, telling me to begin writing again. It had been a long, long time since I’d written anything. You know how it is, when you have a busy life, and those things that you used to be so passionate about take a back seat, and soon, the fire within you begins to die down, don’t you? But now the Lord gave me very specific instructions to write everyday for the next 31 days. It was as though He had added starter fluid to the charcoal within me, and then lit a match and threw it on me.

Suddenly, I had to write again, but where should I begin writing, and who would read what I wrote? I have a facebook account, but I felt the Lord leading me to start a blog that could be posted on facebook, and also touch the hearts of others who weren’t already my facebook friends. Having never written or created a blog account before, I remembered a very good friend who has a blog account, so I visited her website, http://thehiddenpaths.com/, and discovered that her blog was posted on WordPress.

Then, in obedience to the Lord, and because His words within me burned so fiercely, I began a new and exciting journey, sharing the flaming words that the Lord has given me. 31 days have long since come and gone, and still, the fire rages within. Now, not only do I have this blog, which is used for biblical instruction, devotions and Words from the Lord, I have also created another blog, Stories for the Heart, which I now use to write for blogging challenges, short stories and poetry.

It is my prayer that the flaming words within both blogs will ignite a fire within the hearts of you, my beloved readers. I pray my words will inspire you, bring joy to you, and comfort you as you enter this safe haven in the midst of the fiery flames.
