Everlasting Burning


It is in the safety of the 'Everlasting Burnings' that our hearts are kept from offense even in the hour of great testing. When we have surrendered to the highest Flame, our hearts are protected from all lesser flames. When we voluntarily give ourselves to be bondservants of love, we are slaves to no one else. We are in truth finally free. When we have submitted to the wound of the Love of God, all lesser wounds have no power over us. When in the perplexities and pains of our afflictions, we will reenact this scene found in the Song of Solomon, having but one response, the response of the lovesick heart of a lovesick Bride.
