Theme: Spirit Move … in the Refiners Fire
“There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!”
But it’s the only way to move closer and closer to Him. *Not only are we never alone in this walk, but there are blessings in the midst of His refining better than we could ever imagine for ourselves!
The Visual: I’m a Louisiana girl. Tim and I grew up in Louisiana. The Louisiana state wild flower is the Iris which symbolizes and resembles the fleur-de-lis which symbolizes our Cajun French heritage as well as the Holy Trinity. When thinking about how I might incorporate the fleur-de-lis image in my weekend, I went hunting for images and discovered there is actually a variety of Iris called Refiners Fire.
