Your Word is a Fire (Jeremiah 20:9)


Jeremiah 20:9
If I say, “I will not mention him, or speak any more in his name,”
then within me there is something like a burning fire shut up in my bones;
I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot.

Mighty and Mysterious One
Your word is a fire
Your word burns and burns- refining, purifying
Your word is an explosion, a bomb of truth and grace

Who am I to speak for you?
How can I bear your molten heart
these blazing bones
and not be consumed

It is such a holy place
Help me to stay with you and not turn away
