Ignite the flame....

When we first met, it was like a fairy tale. One thought of You and the world was a better place.
Excitement came with each new experience, the closer to You I drew, the closer to me You got
I defied all else just to be with You...parents, friends, not one stood a chance.
For none other could bring me to this place, this place where I’m lost and You are found.

Now the years for me have passed, and along with it my zeal, my zest
Like an old married couple sometimes I forget, how much time it takes to make us work.
So I set myself on this journey, for rekindle the fire, this I sure must do
Without You, I am a journey through the desert, You are my oasis.

I’d take time out to put You in my center, which indeed is where You ought to be.
I’d run daily thoughts by You, like “wow, can You smell the sweetness of wet earth”
Date nights are a definite must, strolls in the evening, just You and me.
And yes of course, we’d communicate a lot more...what better way to draw closer than this.

I shared my plans with friends, and I giggled as I did.
Remembering how we started, I’m filled with much anticipation.
I know in the days to come, I’d learn new was to love you anew
Sweet Jesus, you mean more than this world to me.

 Passion ... We need to work it, stoke it and build it.

Jeremiah 20:9 His word is in my heart like a burning fire! 

Rom 12:11. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervour, serving the Lord.
