Spiritual Sundays ~ Intro and Start a Fire

This post is the first in a new weekly series I’m excited to begin as a way to share a part of my life that I’ve yet to share here on my blog.

I love the Lord and I am not ashamed to say it! He is responsible for every good thing about me and every blessing in my life. He’s working on the not-so-good parts of me and man, am I thankful! While my days may be full of children, food, housework, academics, and blogging, my soul is full of Jesus!

There is nothing innately spiritual about Sundays but I’ve chosen this day to talk about the Lord simply because…well, why not? :)

I will be sharing music that has blessed me or books that I have loved, websites that are full of great Christian content, and/or anything else the Holy Spirit places on my heart.

I would love for you to link up! If you feel like doing your own Spiritual Sundays post, you may use the above image and then please share the link to your post in my comments so I can check it out!

Today’s post is about a song called Start a Fire by the band Unspoken. It has SUCH inspiring words. I know it’s not new, and it’s not even new to me, but it’s really been being a blessing to me lately.

This world can be cold and bitter, feels like we’re in the dead of winter.

Waitin’ on something better, but am I really gonna hide forever?

Over and over again, I hear Your voice in my head,

“Let your light shine, let your light shine for all to see.”

Start a fire in my soul, fan the flame and make it grow.

So there’s no doubt or denyin’.

Let it burn so brightly that everyone around can see

that it’s YOU, that it’s YOU that we need.

Start a fire in me.

You only need a spark to start a whole blaze.

It only takes a little faith.

Let’s start right here in this city, so these ol’ walls will never be the same.

Over and over again, I hear Your voice in my head,

“They need to know.” I need to go, Spirit won’t You fall on my heart now.

Start a fire in my soul, fan the flame and make it grow.

So there’s no doubt or denyin’.

Let it burn so brightly that everyone around can see

that it’s YOU, that it’s YOU that we need.

Start a fire in me.

You are the fire, You are the flame, You are the light on the darkest day.

We have the hope, we bear Your Name, we carry the news that You have come to save.

ONLY YOU CAN SAVE!

Start a fire in my soul, fan the flame and make it grow.

So there’s no doubt or denyin’.

Let it burn so brightly that everyone around can see

that it’s YOU, that it’s YOU that we need.

Start a fire in me.

Amen!! You know, what I think makes this song so powerful is the way it points everything right back to Jesus. HE has be the One leading – it has to be HIS fire that is burning in us in order for us to make a difference in this world. HE brings about change and He is faithful to use and equip us for His glory!

  2. I love this so much! I haven’t posted anything spiritual this week, but the Lord has blessed my time in London in such amazing ways. I have been able to recharge my “batteries”, have some wonderfully deep conversations with a dear friend, and we have had some pretty great adventures. I didn’t think I was going to be able to come, but my husband’s thing was cancelled. I really think that the Lord knew I needed this! He is so good and gives us what we need, when we need it.

  3. I also love Unspoken! It’s amazing how God uses music to touch our hearts. For me, the song “Storyteller” by Morgan Harper Nichols always hits me particularly hard. Especially the line that says, “you hold the broken, you hear my every cry.” Just thinking about it makes me tear up.

  4. I love that you’re posting something spiritual! We need more of this on the internet. :) I’ve never heard the song before but it’s beautiful. Do you listen to Mumford and Sons? I find a lot of their music spiritual but I’m not sure if it actually is (their first album esp is beautiful). My husband swears “I Will Wait” is about a man waiting for a woman, but I think it’s clearly him talking about waiting for Jesus. But I LOVE their music!

    1. How interesting that their music is maybe/maybe not spiritual! I’ll have to look them up because, no, I hadn’t ever heard of them. Thanks for the recommendation!
