Howdy! Welcome to Lit Aflame - where the fire runs rampage and truth can't be quenched.
I have been thinking about starting a life blog/"Bible blog" for some time, but I have kept thinking that I'm too busy and will wait till I'm older and till I have more time.... On the one hand I felt like I really needed to start this blog, on the other...weeeelll, I shrank from talking about things in front of others-all those fears nearly everyone have at one point or another slowed me down for some time (such as "what if I sound dumb? what if I say something that is wrong or incorrect? People will think I just don't know what I'm talking about or that I don't understand because I'm young.)
But for these last few weeks I have come into the totally awesome discovery of other Christian's blogs -WHOA - right? Like, those actually exist? *mind blown*
Anyway, I had been browsing through website after website, blog after blog, they were all great-I especially loved the Christian writing blogs ('cause you know, writing=books -right?). So one day God kinda said, "if you wait until you're older you are going to live regretting not being a Light when you were younger-besides the longer you wait the least likely you are to actually start doing something."
...So here's the blog, I'm not sure if it's even going to be much of a success. But it won't be said that I didn't try.
The thing is, we are called to be Lights in this world of darkness, no matter our age. No matter how old or young we are, God can use us - He can use me-and He can use YOU.
1 Timothy 4:12 "Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity."
Oh, and by the way, on the matter of how I came up with the name, it was hard. See, I already had a name I liked-but then that name was taken! So I racked my brains (it kinda hurt) and thought of another and another-all taken (and they weren't even names that you would expect to be taken). And I asked God to show me the right name... well, I went through another already taken name-and came to this one, "Lit Aflame" which really, I think is fitting. Because my prayer for me is that God would light me aflame so that I may shine for Him, and my prayer for this blog is that through it (and whatever can be salvaged of my ramblings ;) ) others may be lit aflame for Jesus Christ. Because Jesus, is the reason life is worth living.
"Then said I, Ah, Lord God ! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.  But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.  Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord ."
SO if Jesus makes life worth living, why not live that life for Jesus?
