Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing.
Good Morning Jesus!
Thank You so much for the beginning of this day, the sun rising, creation coming alive, and Your presence with me now. This has become the best part of the day and I thank You for helping me establish this cuddle time with You.
I love the smell of nature, Jesus, the smell of dry leaves in the fall, the rain in the spring and the wonderful flowers through the summer. Even winter with the crisp, clean smell of the air. You have created such a bouquet of fragrances in this world.
Your Word this morning made me stop and wonder, am I a nice fragrance rising up to You? In my sin I know I must be a horrible stink. Yet, You have cleansed me from my sin, washed me in Your blood, and I now walk in Your fragrance.
But, many times through the day I slip from Your presence and live my life on my own. Please forgive me, help me to stay close, so Your Spirit will be my spirit and I can please You.
Thank You so very much for being my God!
