“What fires you up?” asked Ashley at a #fireworkpeople chat on Twitter one night.
Lara asked us something similar at Influence two weeks later.
Both nights, I had to think.
What makes my soul flicker? What sets my heart ablaze? What stokes my flame into fire?
A few years ago I wrote a post about stoking the right fire and I believe more firmly now than then that the wood we choose to throw on our tiny fires is critical in forming and fanning the flames.
So this month is an exploration of those things. First, because I don’t know of 31 things that set my heart afire, but come October 31 I want that no longer to be true. Second, because I think we pay too little attention to what is God’s way of flooding our lives with grace. I pray for open eyes so we’ll see how He loves us mightily in the mundane.
I want this to be an interactive series and I want to know what sets your heart on fire. Speak up and tell me! If you post on social media, will you use the hashtag #stokingheartfires? I’ll follow along throughout the month!
The first thing that sets my heart ablaze? Tiny scented fires.
