Help me spread your fragrance wherever I go.
Flood my soul with your spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly
that all my life may only be a radiance of yours.
Shine through me, and be so in me that every soul
I come in contact with may feel your presence in my soul.
Let them look up and see no longer me, but only you, O Lord!
Stay with me, then I shall begin to shine as you do;
so to shine as to be a light to others.
The light, O Lord, will be you shining on others through me.
Let me thus praise you in the way you love best.
by shining on those around me.
Let me preach you without preaching, not by
words but by example, by the catching force, the
sympathetic influence of what I do, the evident fullness
of the love my heart bears to you.
ALSO ALSO I have link to a blog this week that ISN’T Desiring God (Wwwwhat?) It’s Mark Driscoll’s blog and it’s real good.
If you are having quiet time and don’t know what to read, try John chapter 1 and 2 Corinthians chapter 4!
Also here is a sad sad sweet video that is a metaphor for God’s sacrifice for us. I saw this video a while ago and I think this is the same version but I didn’t rewatch it yet since I’m on the Phi Mu couch so if it’s weird, let me know.
