CATCHING FIRE

I will ask the Father
and he will give you another Advocate
to be with you always. Jn 14:16


I asked of my Beloved,
To send from heaven above,
His All-Consuming Spirit,
Inflaming me with Love.

A Blazing Light whose burnish,
Would neither cool nor dim,
To brand His Seal upon my soul,
Claiming me for Him.

Would my loving, gracious Lord,
Ignite at my request,
The Fire of His Spirit
In me, at my behest?

He answers every prayer 
and often, just as we desire,
His flaming arrow torched my soul,
His not mine the Fire.
