Nike's Psyche

An outlet for my peaceful ponderings with, perhaps, the occasional rant.

Light The Fire

My daughter just attended her first "Happening."
There is just something about a Happening closing that fills you to the brim with the power of God. As Sonia Clifton noted in her sermon, you could still see the kids glowing. As they sang and danced and praised the Lord, the feeling of LOVE was palpable. I found particularly moving that some of the first rectors of Diocese of Georgia Happenings now have children of their own attending Happening. I pray that the trend continues.

And, as we often do at closings, we sang one of my favorite songs:

I stand to praise You
But I fall on my knees
My spirit is willing
But my flesh is so weak

Light the fire
(light the fire)
In my soul
(in my weary soul)
Fan the flame
(fan the flame)
Make me whole
(make my spirit whole)
Lord, You know
(Lord, You know)
Just where I've been
(where I've been)
So light the fire
in my heart again

I feel Your arms around me
As the power of
Your healing begins
Your spirit moves through me
Like a mighty rushing wind

Light the fire
(light the fire)
In my soul
(in my weary soul)
Fan the flame
(fan the flame)
Make me whole
(make my spirit whole)
Lord, You know
(Lord, You know)
Just where I've been
(where I've been)
So light the fire
in my heart again

    Glad she enjoyed it. But now I can't stop singing "come on baby light my fire."
