I loved this message on this cute bookmark i got yesterday.
And, as usual, with everything readable that i love, i decided to share it..
I think its either a prayer, hymn or poem. Though i prefer to think of it as a prayer.
It is by Amy Carmicheal.
Flame of God
From prayer that asks that i may be
Sheltered from winds that beat on Thee,
From bearing when i should aspire,
From faltering when i should climb higher,
From silken self, O Captain, free
Thy soldier who would follow Thee.
From subtle love of softening things,
From easy choices, weakenings, (Not thus are spirits fortified, Not this way went crucified),
From all that dims Thy Calvary,
O Lamb of God, deliver me.
Give me the love that leads the way,
The faith that nothing can dismay,
The hope no disappointments tire
The passion that will burn like fire,
Let me not sink to be a clod:
Make me Thy fuel, Flame of God.
