I am a Candle

To my wife, whom God gave the revelation.

Have you ever wondered about a candle,
besides the fact that it gives light?
Let’s examine each part closer,
it has more usage than just that night.

A candle is made of wax and wick,
yet when it burns, it’s so much more.
It changes into another substance,
it’s liquid at its core.

The liquid is a pliable heart,
one the Lord can work with.
As the wax continues to cool,
it becomes hard and stiff.

The wax when hard,
is like a stony heart.
It can be deformed and cold,
not accepting what God wants to impart.

The wick that’s used to burn the candle,
is the will of our soul.
It needs the fire of the Holy Spirit,
to make us complete and whole.

So the candle relates to our life in Christ,
each element an essential part.
We need the Holy Spirit’s constant flame,
to soften and subdue our heart.

So every time you look at a candle,
don’t just see the wax and wick.
See the liquid and the flame,
and all that’s there, in the candle stick.

Remember the Holy Spirit lives inside of us,
so keep His flame pure and bright.
Let it shine in power and love,
as we spread God’s glorious light.
