Set a Fire Down in My Soul

     As you can tell from the title of my previous post, this song has been on my heart a lot lately. The lyrics keep ringing over and over again in my mind, "Set a fire down in my soul, that I can't contain and I can't control. I want more of you, God." I am a strong believer in the power of music. I believe that music speaks what words can't express. I also believe, with all my heart, that God speaks to us through music. God has used this song to speak to me this week. Not only did He give me a fresh desire for "more" of Him, but He also "set a fire" in my soul. In fact, the simple word "fire" has surrounded me this week. I've seen it in scripture. I've heard it in songs. I've even seen a few of my friends on Facebook refer to the "fire" in their own personal status. I usually take that as a sign that God is speaking, and I don't know exactly what message God is trying to get across... but I'm ready for the fire! Amazing things happen when the fire of God begins to spread.







  1. Hey Karis, i heard this song in church a few weeks ago... i'm in lab at school and its blasting in my head, so i looked it up and found you. I'm thankful for what God's doing in your life. Keep the faith!

  2. Thanks Tim! It is a very powerful song, and I'm glad it led you here! :) God Bless!

  3. Hi Karis,

    I am also like Tim. The lyrics have been blasitng inside of my head for the past couple of weeks. I googled it and ran across your blog. Thank you for your faithfulness. I am praying right now for a fire that we can't control. (:

  4. I'm praying for the same thing! Thank you for the encouragement! :)

  5. thank you.... i have gone to several camps fac and the works and they played this song there. weeks after i left the words were still playing again and again through my head. well that was in the summer. its the winter now and time and time again i have been strong and extreamly weak in the word of God. tonight i had enough! i started humming this song and goggled the lyrics" set a fire down im ny soul tht i cant contain that i cant control because i want more of you God" and your site came up. i needed a kick start again and i believe that your site was just what i needed. so thank you and you are truly messangers of God bless you and thanks.

  7. Heard this song today at a new church I was visiting in this city I just moved to. I really appreciated being in church again... And the simple lyrics of this song was exactly what I was feeling. I'm thankful to God for His Love that we cannot be separated from. I googled the lyrics that I could remember, and found this site. That YouTube vid is awesome...

  8. I am another one who just googled this song and brought me to your blog :) Great post, love the song. Just heard it sung at Kim Walker's concert in Tomball, Tx. Glad I found your blog!
