Have you a fire in your soul?
In the Junior Eurovision Song Competition 2015 the girl winner from Malta is ‘impressive’. Her song in essence proclaims with great passion that nothing, absolutely nothing will ever put out the ‘fire in my soul’.
A great song…it can be checked out on Junior Eurovision winner 2015
This intrigued me and I discovered a few conflicting ideas on what ‘a fire in the soul actually is?’ In very general terms it indicates a passion for LIFE.
Yet, I know I personally have experienced a ‘FIRE’ or passion in my life which is from God and for HIM. Pentecost!
I’m therefore simply expressing here from this perspective for believers and any non-believers reading……… it is vital for us ALL to nurture our souls.
We need to keep out from the essence of our being the influences of carnality, cruelty and unkindness and ensure always our souls are nurtured by Peace, beauty, the wonder of creation, music, books, art and creativity which enriches our life experiences.
When there is faith – God’s Spirit aligned with our spirit keeps the soul ‘sanctified’
We all must ‘choose’ wisely what should be the soul’s sustinence, delight and pleasure.
Thoughts to ponder.
Have a brilliant day. May your fire be a fire of LOVE today and this week for others.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

Amen!!! Jesus is the Fire in my soul!
Just as dirt can smother a fire “dirt” can smother the fire/passion of the spirit. Good post, Faye.
