This flame arises, Burning deeply inside me. I push forward, take hold of each challenge, And knock it to the ground. Trying hard to overcome its power, This fire is igniting in front of me. Rushes are called, People are burned. By small mistakes we make, And we deal with the consequences Be them ever so sever. Hoses are kept at hand, To put the blazes out. But ash always remains. So I'm set in motion, To take these broken, Scarred and hurt people, And bring them home. To a place they are safe. I've seen my fights, Dealt with my pains. To those lost and cold, To a Lord who only knows. Why this happens, And why that happens. Fires I've touched, Have burned me way to much. Though with my scars, I show them, those who are jaded. Hated by them because of Him, But I open these wounds, For them to see, Right to the heart of me...
This is written for 's contest 'Be a spark challenge' [link] I'm not sure if this 'really' fits the contest, but it's kinda what flowed when I started thinking about 'me'. I got scars, I got hurts and challenges, I try my best to over come them, and I try (through my Spiritual pieces) to help others, or encourage other people that, though we have had to deal with some hard things, there is always hope. That God is ALways there to carry us on. To show someone else your own wounds, can prove to them they can still believe. (Muttering on now) Anyway, the contest seems cool, go join along if you like. ^^
Oh, and for the record, this is for the 'Literature' category.
What is your spark? Jesus is my spark, and though I have my own sins and problems I'm always willing to share my faith with someone who needs an encouraging word, and though it may be hard at times I'm always willing to open my 'wounds' to help other people see the truth and strength in believing in a Loving God.
How do you rise above challenges and ignite the world? I rise above them with the help of Jesus, I take the pain/challenges in my life and learn from them, to both better myself and help others that are going through their own problems, to encourage them, that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Have you shown another his or her spark? I'm sure I have, there's so many wonderful writers/photographers I know that I prompt them to keep up what they are doing. When I notice someone's talent (be it any kind of talent) I tend to let the person now how wonderful it is, and that they should never stop sharing that 'spark' with the world.
Yea, that's a way to put it. 'know pain then your know gain.' But yes, I meant it more like God lets us go through it, to share and touch others. 'Cause i know, because of this year I have an even opener and understanding mind to homeless people, but not until you become one can you understand how hard it is. And God's taught me that.
