The Garden of My Soul

"Fill the garden of my soul
with the winds of love,
that the scents of the Christian life may be
wafted to others;
then come and gather fruits to Thy glory.
So shall I fulfill the great end of my being -
To glorify Thee and be a blessing to men."

-compiled by Arthur Bennet in The Valley of Vision

Thank you for this post, Jen! That is an excellent quote. Reading it brought to mind 2 Corinthians 2:14-15, “But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing;” May we be like the apostle Paul in that it not be ourselves being seen and known by others, but truly the fragrance and light of Christ.
