God's Encouraging Words

"Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place." 2 Corinthians 2:14 NKJV

Have you discovered the beauty of essential oils? Using them in diffusers is a popular trend right now. I use them to relax at bed time. I put them in my homemade scrubs to wake me up. I add them to homemade shower melts to open up stuffy sinuses. These invisible herbal fragrances waft through the shower, the bedroom, wherever I dispense them to add peace, rest, alertness, calmness.

We are God's diffusers. It is through us that He wants to spread His beautiful, calming presence to those around us. He wants the beauty of His fragrance to waft through the cracks and broken places of our lives to attract other people to Him. How is Christ's fragrance seeping through our broken places right now?

I would love for you to respond to this Newsletter and tell me how God is drawing other people to Himself through you right now. Please?
