Spiritual Fragrance

Today I am reminded of this incredible gift that Our Father will work in us if we allow Him. I am reminded of this truth as I sit and soak in just such an experience that I had recently. One could go on for days on a ten minute encounter with someone who exudes the fragrance of Christ. What is it exactly? "It" is this incredible aroma, this beautiful aura, a light from within, a heart that wants only to give and expects nothing in return, the gift of being a great listener, to hear the unspoken hearts desire of another and to speak it forth, the ability to bring out the best in another person and leave them wanting whatever "it" is that you have. I recently encountered someone like this and she left me literally speechless. I felt that I was in the presence of greatness. Greatness in God and the most spiritually fragrant woman I personally have ever met. My prayer is that I would allow Him to work in me each day so that I would exude my own spiritual fragrance. Becoming more and more like Him each day. Choosing to see and bring out only the very best in those around me and looking for an opportunity to be a blessing to others each day. The opportunities are always there. Sometimes we push them aside. We are too busy. Sometimes we ignore them. We have our own needs. But if we are willing and if we will listen to the still, small voice inside us. He is always speaking, always prompting, gently suggesting ...........opportunities to be more like Him.

Well said!! I hope you don't mind, I'd love to use that in my bible study this week. I'm actually taking a break from my prep now and it ties in perfectly with this week's topic.

I love the name of your blog! I can't wait to read more!
