Purify My Heart
Something of an experiment. A youtube video of me singing one of my favourite songs. It's a song of desire. "Purify my heart".
Done in a single take with an iPhone in a kitchen. So about the quality you'd expect. The song is by Brian Doerksen, from 1990.
The refiner's fire is a potent metaphor recurring throughout scripture. The refiner's fire is where impure ore becomes pure and precious metal.
Christian's sometimes teach that suffering is the refiner's fire, and therefore it is a place of pain to be feared. The refiner's fire is actually the fire of life. A place to abide.
"Desire is beautiful. She may even be beauty."
"I have fire and I know how to burn. What could possibly be more fun that that."
