A Sweet Aroma


Broken in pieces,
Bruised and crushed, yet not destroyed -
Fragrance grows sweeter.

It can happen.
But only if we've stayed close to Him . . .
close enough that His fragrance spills over into our lives.
And during the "bruising and crushing" times, there's no better place to be
than clinging to Him.

Because of Christ, we give off a sweet scent rising to God . . .
II Cor. 2:15 The Message

Love this. Reminds of my one of my fav too- "I may be pressed on every side, but I am not crushed.
I may be perplexed, but I am not in despair.
I may be persecuted, but I have not been abandoned.
I may be struck down, but I am not destroyed."
(2 Cor 4:8-9)

Today, I cling!
