The Fire in Me

The Fire in Me

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

The Fire in Me

 

I hold within me

An infinite need.

A burning in my soul

To forever bestow.

 

Igniting a spark

Inside my heart.

Wanting to set free

The fire in me.

 

It longs to set aflame

The power of Your great Name.

Crying out to You,

My Lord in truth.

 

A love unleashed in a flood,

As Your saving Blood.

To my spirit You speak,

The fire in me

 

When I go through hard times,

It’s You who refines.

The fire intensifies

When I lift Your Name on high.

 

For when I look to You,

I see my own truth.

Unquenchable and mighty

Is the Fire in me.

You are welcome dear Melinda.
This is superb and I actually needed this today. Its my mothers sixth month anniversary of her passing, and I have had a somewhat challenging day, yet in the end, as you say, [ When I go through hard times,
It’s You who refines.
The fire intensifies
When I lift Your Name on high.*


And this is very true, indeed, and it reminded me that I am not along and He is with me, and has placed key people in my life at this time, to help me overcome much. So Thank you for such heart warming writing.
God bless you.
