Fan the Flame!

It takes a lot of energy to keep a fire aflame, doesn’t it?… that is, the energy needed for the flame itself (oxygen, coal, wood, etc.) and the person who’s tending to it.  I liken keeping the flame blazing for the Christian teacher to a fire dance…

…only our fervency (dancing) should be focused on the LORD.  Amen?!  Sometimes we forget the work we must do to fan into flame the gift of God in our lives as teachers.  For me personally, I fan my flame by listening to the Word every morning via my #YouVersion bible app while getting ready for work.  Prior to that though, I make sure to pray before I get out of bed in the morning.  (I need all the help I can get!)  Also, I’m a big Joyce Meyer fan, so I record her show everyday and watch it in the evening when I get home.  Your fire dance may be different than mine, but the point is TO DANCE everyday!!!!! 🙂
Next week, I’m going to pull in how our five senses help in our endeavor to fan into flame the gift of God in us.  See you then my fellow Christian teachers!  God bless you and stay devoted!
