Burning Barlowgirl??? (Teasing, of course!)

I've been going through a period of change recently. It's cool actually, when I'm not exhausted! Haha!! But during these times of transition, it's easy to lose focus and forget the reason behind all the diligence, patience, and hard work. When I'm completely exhausted, a little depressed, and feeling spent, I like to listen to music! Songs with powerful lyrics that speak directly to my situation or what I've left behind work as a quick charge for my batteries.

In the old testament, I remember that the priest were responsible for making sure that a certain fire never went out. In good weather and in bad, they had to tend that thing and make sure it survived no matter what. I feel like my hunger and love for God is the same sort of fire. I have to watch over it, and make sure that it's well fed, and roaring! A good song can act like nice, dry firewood on a windy day. My spirit seizes it and my soul is refreshed! So on those lines, here's one of my favorite songs by Barlowgirl, compliments of YouTube. (Please forgive the quality of video, seemed like all the other videos with this song featured Harry Potter!! Hahaha!!)

Interesting title, but I totally understand. =)

Thanks for the encouragement, via example, to keep the fire burning brightly for God!

Keep going girl!

I love this particular song by Barlowgirl. That was a great analogy you gave comparing your hunger for God to a fire that needs tending. It's so true. Music is one of my favorite ways to feed my love for God's presence in my life.
Keep up the good work on these posts, kiddo!
