The Fire Within Mama Maggie
So for every believer, when we go and close the door to our secret place, the fire will come either to burn my sins and my wrong attitude, or to take me to another level of inspiration, of wonders, of heaven, and seeing things.
Then I come back more humbly because I've seen in some ways God's glory. So it's all about his fire of love.
Young people in the United States have a new social awareness. They want to help the needy around the world, yet sometimes they don't know where to get involved. How should they get started?
Jesus takes us always step by step. He doesn't reveal the whole all at once. So I would tell anyone who feels this: Please take another step and do something to the closest person—inside your family, inside your town, inside your church. You can encourage someone with a word. You can give a flower to someone. You can do something. When you do, Jesus will open the door for you for more. Take the step.
