Don’t Let The Fire Go Out

crossThis is the title song of my newest CD.  In the song, I sing about “a restlessness to be.”  We think of restlessness mostly as a feeling of the young, but age is not a true factor. This restlessness comes from wanting to move from a dissatisfaction of the old, with a hungering to try something new.

Restlessness can be a good thing, a creative thing, and a positive change.  Holy Spirit restlessness is completely different from ambitious restlessness ~ one drives us inward and the other drives us outward.  Holy Spirit restlessness moves us outside of ourselves, as the song says, “crying out ~ send me.”

I am certainly not young, but I still feel a restlessness that gives me an edge, an eagerness and exciting energy to change smoldering embers into burning flames.  I would be privileged to come to your church with God’s message.

“Don’t burn out.  Keep yourselves fueled and aflame” – Romans 12:11 (The Message)
