A tiny spark. It’s all it takes to start a fire. To ignite a passion. A desire. A fire within that begins to spread rapidly. Others begin to catch wind of it. They can see it, smell it, sense it, and begin to get fired up about it too. They are compelled to know more about it. To find out where it began, how it started, how it is spreading and creating a movement.
Amy and I were in a meeting today with some amazing women and making preparation for upcoming events. The word on my heart this morning as I awoke was spark. I mentioned it to her and she said hey, I’m drinking a spark right now! Coincidence? Think not. Also on a previous phone conversation this morning with our COO, Eric, he mentioned that Amy was the “spark plug” that will ignite the hearts as others hear the vision. Once people, churches, pregnancy centers and beyond begin hearing more about Embrace Grace… something will be ignited.
Something inside me leapt at that moment. It was a prophetic word being spoken.
This may sound silly, but I am going to share this anyways… Since I am a very visual gal, I could already see myself going to an auto shop and purchasing a spark plug, placing in a cute gift bag with pretty tissue paper and handing it to Amy.. oops, sorry Amy I just spoiled the surprise I am brining you. Anyways, I am going to get that gift for her as a symbol that as she goes out and speaks, opens her mouth and shares about the heart of Embrace Grace, the vision and mission, how to be involved and so much more. The passions and hearts begin to get stirred up and fired up. Helping others learn how to begin reaching out and touching the “ONE”: the mommies and babies that need the love and grace of Jesus. Multiplying this over and over again. We are the hands and feet of Jesus and it just takes a little spark to spread and catch fire and sweep across the land.
A spark plug delivers an electric current, a surge, a spark of energy to ignite the compressed air within an engine. They are also sometimes referred as flame igniters. Whoa! Are you catching this? As a spark plug helps the engine to be ignited for a vehicle, a spark within the body can also transpire and create a surge and energy that can spread rapidly. We can see a symbolism surfacing here.
When reading online on auto.howstuffworks.com a comment is made that simplifies and makes it easy to understand and grasp. A spark plug is quite simple in theory: It forces electricity to arc across a gap, just like a bolt of lightning. The top of the spark plug is a connector. The correlation is simply beautiful. Yes I know relating a spark plug as something beautiful may sound crazy. But it truly is. Amy is such an amazing connector, a bridge in the gap, bridging people and making connections in the most profound and prolific way. I am getting pumped up just thinking about the synergy and surges that are about to spread.
She has this electric current, this energy inside of her that ignites something deep within. Others are naturally drawn to her. It’s beautiful and life giving and brings a synergy and spark that is invigorating and so alive. When you are around her, you just catch it. I love these moments! Sweet things are happening.
A leader from Embrace Grace had a vision of these tiny fires that were beginning in a small area in Southlake and began to spread like wildfire. She saw Embrace Grace as the movement being made as these tiny fires are beginning to be lit and spreading around the nation. It’s electrifying!! Stay tuned for more of the good stuff that is to come.
