I AM WATER
I am weak because God made me so.
As He nourishes my soul and cleanses my heart from impurities, I am hopeful of living my life in close community with the Holy Spirit.
I would like the Holy Spirit to flow within me and give me calm and peace even when chaos surrounds me.
I want to be beautiful in His eyes.
In my life, I want to have a heart that is the heart of God – vast like the ocean, refreshing and clear to those who immerse themselves into it.
More than anything else, I want to be at peace with myself, my life and the path that God has laid before me. I trust that God is good and that He has only goodness planned for me.
I choose to live in faith, hope and love. May God’s purity abide in me and me in Him every minute of everyday. This is my aspiration and my prayer.
I AM FIRE
I provide the heat to melt the hearts of those frozen by sin.
I bring warmth to those in the cold regions of Pride, Anger, Lust and Greed.
I am the torch that burns bright to show the way for those who choose to follow me.
I burn the underbrush so that their paths may be cleared of obstacles to ease their way.
I am a shining beacon in the darkness of night to guide others who are lost… looking for a way home.
Like a lighthouse, I guide the ships of their lives to avoid deadly rocks and reefs in the ocean of life.
