heart journey

This week Bonnie asked:
How has God been touching your heart this month? Share what you see.
I have been dwelling close to the fire
letting His life spark, flame and melt away the chains
the heart of flesh He created is learning
to beat in tune with His
and ache for those things that move Him
injustice, homelessness, lack
blogger friends have been telling the tales
writing from Africa
the continent that claimed me
as soon as the red soil settled on my skin
it was then that this journey began
the prayers, the waiting
and now the call to prepare, to leave 
the Canadian prairies I now call home
to return to Africa with His heart
and the feet He gave me
to share His story, His love, His truth
and as I go, continue to learn what it means
to abide, beneath the shelter of His wings

jamming with Bonnie

Visiting from Faith Barista... These pics and sentiments are so moving, FireFly. I love this - "I have been dwelling close to the fire letting His life spark, flame and melt away the chains." Makes me tear up with longing and gratitude. Thank you for sharing.
