Consuming Fire

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

 Lord, fill me with Your all-consuming fire;
 
     Until my face glows
             with the radiance of Your holy flame,
 
     Until my cheeks flush
            with the passion of Your gracious love,
 
     Until the scent of Your sacrificial smoke
             lingers on my soul…
 
Then others will know
             that I am Yours, alone.
 

“…But His word was in my heart
like a burning fire
Shut up in my bones;
I was weary of holding it back, 
And I could not.”
Jeremiah 20:9b NKJV
