You deserve to receive all of my love.
Anything less, Lord, would not be enough.
I'll lavish you, Lord, with all I have received.
I'll spend my whole life to anoint you as King.
- Danielle Rose, "Anointing at Bethany"
Bound by Ignition
Your steadfast love swirls within me.
My heart aflame
Burning as I seem to have always felt it.
In the way I will never forget.
Doubt flits away in the vapor of smoke;
Trails of apprehension, crumble like crystalline.
Flakes fall, soft like snow.
There my feet fall.
"Follow me," you call.
My will chimes in with a 'but' on the end.
"I will, but..."
No. Not Here.
The flame rises,
the resistance melts away.
In the fire, my will is transformed.
Merged, Fused with yours.
You rise in me, I but follow.
If I withdraw, I freeze
the fuel stands still
no spark- no fury for life
a life of the heart
no need to remember;
no knowing how it will beat,
assured that grace trumps certainty.
Bound by ignition
to burn brightly in you.
to love deeply in you.
to always be yours.
