An Old Prayer - Just Words to Inspire...

I have been painting a little...but busy tweener life has overcome all other aspects of existence this week...it is either that or that the heat has totally overwhelmed me...and the fact that twice storms have knocked out our electricity!  AND I totally lost my cell phone - Yikes!  But I was inspired to post anyway by Kay at Heart and Soul who was sharing about one of my favorite missionaries...and this is a quote of hers that I keep close to contemplate often...

SOLDIER'S PRAYER

Give me the love that leads the way,
the faith that nothing can dismay,
the hope no disappointments tire,
the passion that will burn like fire.
Let me not sink to be a clod:
  Make me thy fuel, Flame of God.
                                                        
                                                                                                        Amy Carmichael

I have this in a "spiritual warfare" collage....
May your week be full with faith, hope, passion, and being the fuel for the Flame of God!

Such a beautiful woman who is a favorite of mine, too. Oh to be as dedicated to others as Amy was. She inspires me to do more for God.

Boy that painting grabs me and then putting it with that poem. It's just perfect.

We have had a load of powerful storms too. My youngest has become very worried when it rains these days...even just a little. She starts off by saying "Oh! NO! it's raining?" Then she will say "I'm not worried!" and then "but, could we stay in. . .I think I'm worried just a little." My poor baby! Bless her heart!
