We all have a fire that burns in our hearts.
For many of us, each day seems to be filled with people or events that try to extinguish that flame. Harsh words, depression, illness, an abusive relationship, the loss of a loved one. We will all face trials in one form or another. In John 16:33 Jesus Himself said, "In the world you will have tribulation." He didn't say you might have tribulation, he said you WILL have tribulation. No one can go through this life without it no matter what their standing is in the world.
The choice we all have is how we face and deal with these trials. We could choose to succumb to our suffering, and in doing so allow that pain to steal our joy and smother out the fire in their hearts. Or we can choose to take hold our suffering and use it to fan the flames.
