It is my new favourite word.
I love it! For my entire life, I have been short! Now I know that is no surprise to those of you who know me or who have met me, but I have been teased about it as far back as I can remember!
Now it doesn’t worry me these days, I have made peace with my height limitations and to be honest, the fact that I can fit kids size jeans is a bonus! But this quote…..it is one I have loved for a long time. I have it on a necklace, a t-shirt and I have just ordered a print for my wall! Since the first time I read it, I fell in love with it. Just because I am little, doesn’t mean I am not fierce!
This morning on my way into Church I heard a song on the radio for the first time and within seconds it was on full volume! (thankfully I was alone in the car) It was by Jesus Culture and is called “Fierce”
There is that word again! As I listened to the lyrics and have played it non-stop ever since I am again captivated by that word.
I looked up the dictionary definition and it sounds angry and not something we should particularly want for ourselves to be, but as I put it in context and listen to this song, I know it is something I am meant to me.
Not fierce, as in angry with my kids, acting fiercely towards Phil, or in fierce competition with anyone else.
Fiercely in love with my Saviour
Fiercely pursuing all He has for me.
Fiercely holding on tight to what I know I am called for.
Fiercely believing His truth for my life.
Fiercely clinging to His promises.
And when I listen to this song I know it works both ways! As fierce as my love is for Him, so is His for me. Wow! With God backing me that fiercely, how can I not win at life?
So this week I am being fierce! Not a scary ‘keep away from Kathy’ fierce, but a passionately pursuing God kind of fierce!
How about you?
